Scottish open: full preview, bettings odds, and best bets

So…the John Deere Classic STINKS. It may be the worst field I’ve ever seen on the PGA Tour. So, there’s no way in hell that we’re talking about that tournament this week. Instead, let’s head over the pond.

The Scottish Open has always been a nice tune up for the guys before the Open Championship. But this year, it’s even more loaded than normal. 4 of the Top 5 players in the world are teeing it up, and I can’t wait to watch.


Jon Rahm, fresh off his first major victory, is back on the golf course this week. This will be the first time Rahm plays in the Scottish Open, but has played in the Irish Open several times since 2016.

World No. 3 Justin Thomas has made the trip over to Scotland. The last time he played in this event was 2019, and he finished T9.

Our guy is yet again teeing it up on the Euro Tour this week, after a disappointing performance in-front of the hometown fans at the Irish Open. Rory had a rough weekend, and ended the week T59. He finished T34 in 2019 at this event, with 4 rounds under par.

Other big names in the field include Collin Morikawa, Xander Schauffele, Tyrrell Hatton, Scottie Scheffler, Matty Fitz, Will Zalatoris, and Tommy Fleetwood.

Betting Odds

Players to Target…

We’re starting with Mr. Fleetwood.

He had a solid week in Ireland, finishing T17. He was the runner-up at this event last season, losing in a playoff to Aaron Rai.

Hasn’t done much on the PGA Tour of late, aside from a Top 15 at the Wells Fargo Championship.

Tyrrell Hatton is a player who loves returning to Europe. He hasn’t played over the pond since February, but his 3 starts this year are a win, T22, and T6.

In 2019 he tied for 14th at this event.

On the PGA Tour, it’s been a mixed bag. He finished 2nd at the Palmetto Championship, but just one start later missed the cut at the US Open.

Putting has been a struggle of late, losing strokes in 2 straight starts. If that gets turned around in Scotland, watch out for Tyrrell.

Bernd Wiesberger won this tournament in 2019. The wind was down, and the golf course played easy.

This year, it’s going to be a little more difficult, but not as hard as last year.

Wiesberger won the Made in Denmark back in May, and just finished T5 at the BMW International Open a few weeks ago.
