We’re just weeks away from the Ladies European Tour (LET) restarting and the field for the Aberdeen Standard Investments Ladies Scottish Open has now been revealed.
Taking place from August 13 to 16 at The Renaissance Club in North Berwick, the line-up includes a super exciting mix of golf legends and current stars.
Three of the world’s top ten players - America’s Danielle Kang (No.4), Japan’s Nasa Hataoka,(No.5) and Australia’s Minjee Lee. (No.8) - will be teeing off alongside homegrown hero and women's golf icon Dame Laura Davies and a whole host of top-ranked LET players including Charley Hull and Georgia Hall.
Invitations have also been awarded to local golfer Catriona Matthew and defending champion of the Women’s British Open’s Hinako Shibuno.
Matthew is a two-time winner of the Ladies Scottish Open and of course she most recently captained the European Solheim Cup side to victory at Gleneagles along with with Vice Captain Dame Laura Davies only last year.
Clearly excited about the prospect of getting back out there on the links, Matthew said:
“It’s been a while since I have needed an invite to get into an event so I am really grateful to Aberdeen Standard Investments and VisitScotland. It’s been such a strange few months and it has definitely put golf into perspective but, at the same time, I am starting to get pretty excited about getting out and competing again and also seeing everyone again and welcoming them back to Scotland from a socially safe distance!”
Due to be broadcast on Sky Sports and the Golf Channel, we can’t wait to watch the players return to action.
