FOUR-TIME Major winner Brooks Koepka is among the latest big names announced for the star-studded Scottish Open.

All four of the current Major champions – Scottie Scheffler, Matt Fitzpatrick, Collin Morikawa and Justin Thomas – have previously been announced for the event, which tees off at The Renaissance Club on July 7.

Now, Koepka – a two-time winner of both the PGA Championship and the US Open – has been joined by world number three Patrick Cantlay, Major winners Jon Rahm, Olympic gold medal winners Xander Schauffele and Justin Rose, and former European number one Tommy Fleetwood.

The Genesis Scottish Open, which comes to a conclusion on July 10, will be co-sanctioned by the DP World Tour and PGA Tour for the first time as part of a historic Strategic Alliance.

Koepka, 32, has previously won on Scottish soil during his time on the European Challenge Tour and has played the Scottish Open on three occasions.

The former world number one is relishing the opportunity to return to the event for the first time since 2015.

Meanwhile, Cantlay has been one of the most in-form golfers in the world over the last 12 months, having won the 2021 FedEx Cup after closing out an impressive season with victories in two of the three FedEx Cup play-off events.

The 30-year-old also has a win under his belt in 2022 alongside Ryder Cup team-mate Schauffele at April’s Zurich Classic of New Orleans.

World number 12 Schauffele lived the Olympic dream in Tokyo last summer, winning gold for the Unites States at Kasumigaseki Country Club.

He returns to The Renaissance Club for a second appearance in the Genesis Scottish Open following a top-10 finish last season.

Rose, the 2014 Scottish Open champion, made history in Rio two years later as he claimed gold for Great Britain on golf’s return to the Olympics for the first time since 1904.

The former world number one and 2013 US Open champion will return to the Genesis Scottish Open for his 11th appearance and first since 2018 as he aims to add to the title he won at Royal Aberdeen eight years ago.

Fleetwood came agonisingly close to winning at The Renaissance in 2020, losing out to Aaron Rai in a play-off.
