The latest stop on the Race to Dubai is The Barclays Scottish Open on the bonnie banks of Loch Lomond. This week’s field is exceptional strong with many visitors from the PGA Tour including FootJoy Classics players Adam Scott, Nick Watney (Pure Touch™ Glove) and Camilo Villegas (Pure Touch™ Glove).
Ross Fisher currently no. 4 on the Race to Dubai, is back on the European Tour after a great finish in the US Open. Ross will be hoping to continue his impressive run of form this week.
Scottish staffer Callum Macaulay broke out a new pair of white and black SYNR-G for his first appearance as a professional at the Scottish Open. He competed at Loch Lomond a year ago as an amateur.
Last year's leading money winner on the Challenge Tour, David Horsey, wore traditional plain black Classics on the practice day. He's not normally such a sober dresser and looks forward to being able to customise his shoes to match his colourful outfits. He was one of a number of players wearing a FJ logo on their shirt collars this week... Webster, Macaulay, Hoey, O'Malley and Ferrie were among the others.
Lee Westwood, Rory McIlroy and Nick Watney were seen wearing Pure Touch gloves at Loch Lomond this week and will all be hoping to maintain their form into next week and The Open Championship at Turnberry.
The crowds at Loch Lomond would have been delighted by being able to follow a dream threeball to follow on Thursday. FootJoy ambassadors Rory McIlroy, Ian Poulter and Lee Westwood were paired together. McIlroy and Poulter enjoyed steady first rounds, scoring three under two under respectively. Westwood found things tough as he is currently fighting a chest infection but still managed to card a respectable 73.
All players in the field this week will be keen to perform well ahead of next week’s Open at Turnberry.
