Rolex Series

Robert MacIntyre thrilled to see many of world's top players in Scotland

Home favourite Robert MacIntyre has always personally regarded the Genesis Scottish Open as one of the best events in golf but feels the 2022 edition truly lives up to that billing.

A world-class field has gathered at The Renaissance Club for this week's Rolex Series event, with some of the biggest DP World Tour and PGA TOUR stars set to go head-to-head at the co-sanctioned tournament.

Among them are the four reigning Major Champions Matt Fitzpatrick, Collin Morikawa, Justin Thomas and Scottie Scheffler.

And Scot MacIntyre, who impressed at last week's Horizon Irish Open, is delighted to see such a strong field at his home tournament.

He said: "As a golf tournament, seeing the field we get this year, the Scottish Open itself, the tournament has got bigger and bigger.

"It's great to see and competing against the best in the world is what it's all about.

"This golf tournament, it's one of the best. It's always been one of my big ones but now it feels like it's right up there with every golf tournament.

"I think with the alliance (between the DP World Tour and PGA TOUR), I'm not sure the number, is it 14 of the top 15 in the world that are here this week...


"There's not many golf tournaments you get that - for that to be at the Scottish Open is massive."

On his form, he added: "I'm seeing good signs in my game, good performance last week.

"Changed quite a few things but we're still pushing to do the same things and trying to get better, trying to win golf tournaments."
