Sandy Lyle

Sandy Lyle, two-time Major Champion, is making his first appearance at the Scottish Senior Open at Craigielaw.

“I’ve played in many Opens in Scotland and always enjoyed the warmth and support of the home fans. I know many of the East Lothian courses exceptionally well from my time living in the area and I am looking forward to playing Craigielaw for the first time alongside some of my fellow Major winners such as Paul Lawrie and Ian Woosnam.”

Paul Lawrie

Paul Lawrie, The 1999 Open Champion, is also playing in the Scottish Senior Open for the first time.

“It’s always great to play on home soil and I’m looking forward to be playing in front of home crowds as a member of the Staysure Tour… I’ve got a lot of happy memories from European Tour events in Scotland and hopefully I’ll be able to create some new ones this year on the over-50s circuit.”

Michael Campbell

Michael Campbell, from New Zealand, playing in Scotland for the first time in 6 years and looking forward to the challenge:
