WORLD number six Max Homa and Ryder Cup star Tyrrell Hatton are among the latest players confirmed for this summer’s Genesis Scottish Open.

The stellar field already includes world number two Scottie Scheffler, as well as fellow Major winners Matt Fitzpatrick, Justin Rose and Justin Thomas and defending champion Xander Schauffele.

Also teeing off at The Renaissance Club, near Dirleton, will be European Ryder Cup star Tommy Fleetwood, PGA Tour winners Sam Burns and Séamus Power, Scotland’s number one Robert MacIntyre and East Lothian’s Grant Forrest.



Homa, 32, counts the Genesis Invitational amongst his six PGA Tour wins, and he will tee it up in East Lothian on July 13 after finishing tied 16th on his debut in the competition last season.

He said: “Last year was a blast, the whole week was great – I love Scotland.

“I have a lot of great memories from coming to the Genesis Scottish Open and I’m excited to come back again this year.”

Joining him on Scotland’s Golf Coast will be six-time DP World Tour winner Hatton.

The Englishman has an enviable record at Scotland’s national open, with five top 20 finishes in his eight previous appearances, including runner up in 2016.

For the world number 17, it is an opportunity to expand his collection of four Rolex Series victories.

Hatton said: “I always enjoy playing the Genesis Scottish Open in the week before The Open.

“It’s a huge event and one that I would love to win after some good results over the years.”

Also confirmed this week was Korean star Im Sung-jae, who missed the cut last year.

The 2018-19 PGA Tour Rookie of the Year and current world number 18 is seeking a third PGA Tour victory and his first on the DP World Tour.

He said: “It’s exciting to have an event like the Genesis Scottish Open co-sanctioned by both the PGA TOUR and DP World Tour and I’m looking forward to playing in Scotland again this summer.”
