SPORTING stars, musicians and television personalities are among the celebrities taking to the greens at The Renaissance Club on Wednesday.

The Aberdeen Standard Investments Scottish Open gets under way next Thursday (July 11), with some of the world’s top golfers looking to gain momentum heading into The Open.

Twenty-four hours before competition gets under way, Tartan Wednesday returns to the competition, along with the Pro-Am tournament.

Fans are encouraged to join players and celebrities by donning tartan in aid of the tournament charities: My Name’5 Doddie Foundation, Leuchie House and the European Tour Foundation.

Television presenters Dan Walker and Naga Munchetty, who regularly share the sofa on BBC Breakfast, will be joined by TV personality and regular Hero Challenge host Vernon Kay.

Frontman for Scottish rock band Twin Atlantic Sam McTrusty is joined by comedian-turned-radio presenter Fred MacAulay and talkSPORT presenter Georgie Bingham.

Staying in sport, Winter Olympian Eve Muirhead will also join what promises to be a fun day out on the golf course.

In a battle of the Irish boy bands, Boyzone singer Keith Duffy and singer-songwriter and former Westlife vocalist Brian McFadden will also tee it up.

Former Scotland and British Lions lock forward Doddie Weir revealed in June 2017 that he had been diagnosed with motor neurone disease. In November that year, he and his trustees launched the My Name’5 Doddie Foundation to raise funds to aid research into the causes of motor neurone disease and investigate potential cures.

Leuchie House, near North Berwick, is Scotland’s only dedicated respite centre and offers caring respite breaks to people with long-term neurological conditions, including motor neurone disease.

By providing the care they need, Leuchie is able to support people with many different conditions to have fulfilling, revitalising breaks, while giving their carers time away from caring.

The two charities joined the European Tour Foundation – which works with charities, players, governing bodies and partners to ensure a lasting legacy in the countries where the European Tour plays – as official charity partners of the Scottish Open in 2019, and will once again benefit from a range of fundraising activities throughout tournament week, including Tartan Wednesday.

The Aberdeen Standard Investments Scottish Open is being played for the first time at The Renaissance Club, which was founded in 2008 and nestles on 300 picturesque acres along the Firth of Forth. Tickets for the Pro-Am are £20 for adults and £9 for juniors.
