Great news for Lee Westwood fans- the leading English Westwood golfer has been confirmed for the upcoming Scottish Open tournament.
Along with Westwood, Darren Clarke has also been confirmed for the prestigious tournament to be hosted at Royal Aberdeen. Scottish Open 2014 is scheduled to take place from 10th to 13th July and would feature some of the best names from golf such as Jimmy Walker, Rory McIlroy and Phil Mickelson, apart from Clarke and Westwood.
Westwood was naturally delighted with the confirmation of his participation at the esteemed golf tournament this July. It would be his 1st appearance in Scottish Open after 3 years and he admitted that he is eagerly waiting to play at it.
“I am really glad to get confirmed for this tournament and have been eagerly waiting to play here”, said the 40 year old golfer. “It’s a course that I’ve never got a chance to play at and hence it’s surely going to be a major challenge. I’ve heard excellent things about the course.”
“I feel that it would be a great place to prep up for Open championship & this is one among the major reasons why I have decided to bounce back this year”, Westwood added in.
Clarke is trying hard to get back to his glorious form of late and akin to Westwood, he too is delighted to play at the tournament. “It’s true that I adore links golf”, remarked Clarke.
“So to get the opportunity to play at some new links golf course on Euro Tour Schedule seems to be really thrilling for me. It’s more special because Scottish Open is such an event which is really close to my heart. The golf fans of Scotland are really knowledgeable & it has been a pleasure, always, to get back to this esteemed event.”
