Scotland's David Huish returns to Scotland this week for The Scotsman Scottish Seniors Open which once again takes place at the Marriott Dalmahoy Hotel and Country Club.
Huish, the 1998 Champion, is looking for his third title of the season to move to the top of the European Seniors Order of Merit but first he must overcome another top-class field which includes the defending champion Neil Coles, currently one place ahead of Huish in the Order of Merit and another of the seasons champions.
Indeed when Coles won the Microlease Jersey Seniors Open in June he became the first player in golfing history to win in six different decades and with a string of top ten finishes is challenging to top the Order of Merit as he approaches the age of 66.
Twelve months ago Coles claimed his second title in the space of three weeks when he shot a final round of 69 for a ten under par total of 206, one clear of the American duo of Jerry Bruner and Jay Dolan III.
Huish, the course manager and professional at North Berwick, is the only multiple winner on the Seniors Tour having captured the Lawrence Batley Seniors and the Bad Ragaz PGA Seniors. Two years ago he defeated Northern Ireland's David Jones at the second hole of a sudden-death play-off at Marriott Dalmahoy after both players finished on 273, 15 under par, to claim his second Seniors Tour title.
David Creamer, Tommy Horton, Nick Job, David Oakley and Ian Stanley, all winners this season are also in the field along with former Ryder Cup captain Bernard Gallacher.
Set in woodlands at the foot of the Pentland Hills just outside Edinburgh, Marriott Dalmahoy Hotel and Country Club will provide a stern test for senior golfers. This is the third year the event has been played at the Marriott Dalmahoy.
