The Castle Stuart links showed its teeth for Round 4 of the Aberdeen Asset Management Scottish Open, producing 17 sub-par rounds and a field average score of 73.13. Phil Mickelson emerged as the winner from a playoff against Branden Grace, with Stenson and Hansen finishing as their closest challengers. We analyse the leading performances plus we round up the final Genworth Statistics leaders.

Phil MICKELSON -17

Phil Mickelson converted seven birdies against two bogeys and a double bogey on his way to a final round 69, and then took the title with a piece of Mickelson magic in a playoff against Brandon Grace. Looking at his Genworth Statistics for the week, the 43 year old Hall of Famer from the United States was strong all round, driving the ball long and hitting lots of Greens in Regulation, plus he scrambled for par 90% of the time when the greens were missed and ranked high for each of the putting categories. Some would say it was perfect preparation for The Open Championship next week.
