Paul Lawrie probably known as Scotland’s best player now and England’s World Number Four Lee Westwood are going to be leading the home challenge for this year’s Alfred Dunhill Links at St Andrews.
These two players have won this event before and we will be up against it this year as a strong field includes no fewer than 11 Major champions.
Westwood who won this event back in 2003 said: “I’m hoping for two memorable weeks: victory for The Ryder Cup team in the United States and then back to St Andrews for a second Dunhill victory.
Ernie Els who is the current Open champion and a four-time Major winner leads a strong South African line-up, including 2011 US Masters champion Charl Schwartzel and 2010 Open champion Louis Oosthuizen.
We will also see appearances from Colin Montgomerie and Martin Laird, plus England’s Paul Casey and Simon Dyson who won in 2009.
But let’s not get too excited or ahead of ourselves, we still have the Ryder Cup to decide first and this will be a bit of a comedown for a lot of the players. Well hopefully only the European ones!
