Dunhill Links keeps Scotland in the spotlight

2.40pm 2nd October 2014 - Sponsorship

Alfred Dunhill links logoScotland remains at the centre of the golfing spotlight this week, with four of Europe’s victorious Ryder Cup team and captain Paul McGinley taking part in the Alfred Dunhill Links Championship on the country’s east coast.

World Number One Rory McIlroy will play alongside his father Gerry in the pro-am format across three of Scotland’s top links course; Kingsbarns, Carnoustie and St Andrews Old Course.

The four-time Major Champion, twice a runner up in the event, is joined by France’s Victor Dubuisson, Scotland’s Stephen Gallacher and Martin Kaymer, all of whom helped Europe to a 16½-11½ victory against the United States at Gleneagles last week.

Defending champion is Englishman David Howell, the former Ryder Cup player, who defeated American Peter Uihlein 12 months ago to claim his fifth European Tour title and first since 2006.

There is also a strong South African contingent in the field, including Major Champions Ernie Els, Charl Schwartzel and Louis Oosthuizen, along with Branden Grace, the 2012 champion.
