THE world-class field at next month’s Scottish Open in East Lothian has been strengthened with the addition of two more Major winners.

Francesco Molinari and Danny Willett join fellow Major winners Scottie Scheffler, Collin Morikawa, Justin Thomas, Jon Rahm, Jordan Speith, Brooks Koepka, Hideki Matsuyama and Justin Rose in teeing off at The Renaissance Club on July 7 to 10.

Four of the top five players in the world and 12 of the top 20 are taking part, including in-form American duo Sam Burns and Billy Horschel.

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

Burns will make his second appearance at the historic event, following a top-20 finish on his debut at the county venue last year. The 25-year-old has taken his tally of PGA Tour titles to four with two wins this season.

Horschel also looks set to arrive in East Lothian in fine form, after winning his seventh PGA Tour title at the Memorial Tournament this month.

Last season, he became just the second American to lift the BMW PGA Championship trophy.

Fellow Rolex Series winner Molinari achieved his greatest career victory in Scotland when he claimed his first Major title in The Open at Carnoustie in 2018. That historic win was part of a stellar year that saw the six-time DP World Tour winner claim five points from five at the Ryder Cup in Paris and go on to become the first Italian to be crowned European number one.

Willett’s Major breakthrough came in 2016, when he became the first European for 17 years to win the Masters.

The English Ryder Cup player has also enjoyed recent success in Scotland, winning his eighth DP World Tour title at the 2021 Alfred Dunhill Links Championship.

Defending champion Min Woo Lee will be back to defend his crown and Scotland’s number one male player, Robert MacIntyre, is also confirmed as teeing off at the event.
