The Genesis Scottish Open - 2022

Recommended Posts

Why does this event sound like a major and why isn't the sponsor Guinness instead of Genesis? ūüėܬ†The Genesis Scottish Open is our next stop on this long 2022 campaign.¬† I'm still trying to figure out "the field" list - which is a little different than our normal. Min Woo Lee returns as the defending champ in what many consider as the tune-up event for the following weeks 150th Open Championship. I've only seen Min Woo a couple of times and could be way off here, but he strikes me as a player who could start dominating fields sooner than later.¬† To paraphrase my grand nephew... "that dudes gotz serious skillz".

Oddly, as much as attending an Open event at St. Andrews would be a thrill, for me, this event would seem just as thrilling.¬† Maybe it's just that I really enjoyed the couple of albeit brief visits I had in Scotland. Plus, I'm guessing the gate fee and beers are WAY cheaper¬†ūüôā.¬†¬†

Don't forget to make your pick for this weeks winner https://runmypools.com/JRMPNWWF.  Good luck!

Min Woo Lee wins abrdn Scottish Open in three-way playoff

I would love to do a meet up in Ireland or Scotland. Went to Scotland back in 2007 the weekend of the open at Carnoustie and stayed the following week. The absolute best golf trip ever! ūüĎŹ

I'm still trying to figure out "the field" list It appears that some of the LIV golfers are going to try and get a judge to allow them to play.

I suspect that Guinness is more likely to sponsor the Irish Open, seeing as how Guinness is made in Ireland.  For the Scottish Open, maybe Tennant's or Belhaven would be sponsors.

Good point.  I like all (well most) of them, so anything regional beer would be better than car for these events.

Genesis is not very big in Europe so this must have been an agreement between the tours that a PGA sponsor is used. The old sponsor was Aberdeen Asset Management a large European financial/pension company. They merge with another company and some marketing genius came up with a new company name "abrdn", the joke was they had been disenvoweled.

 

Seems like the wind has been blowing 25 to 30mph all season in Scotland so be interesting to see the scoring.

Ian Poulter allowed to play Scottish Open after ban lifted - BBC Sport

I just caught part of this on TGC and it listed other players as well being allowed to play but not sure who.  I think there were about 8 total players who were affected and qualified to play.  Still quite early to tell how this all shakes out over the long haul, but this suggests a crack in the PGA/DP Tour egg.

Been watching coverage.  Nice pitch by zalatoris that lipped out if the hole and ended up on top of Fitzpatrick’s ball marker.  Caddies were even taking pictures

I don't know about that.¬† Crazy winds, narrow fairways, 2' high rough, 5' deep sand traps that look like abandoned wells.¬† Although at first glance, I thought there are no trees on each side of the fairway, where would my drive end up if not in the woods?!¬† ūü§£

Most places you are very exposed. Wind plays havoc. Renaissance has way more trees than most, but they only create more obstacles, LOLZ
