Mickelson confirmed for The Scottish Open

The Barclays Scottish Open will take place the week before the 150th Open Championship at St Andrews and the organisers are delighted that US Masters Champion Phil Mickelson has confirmed his entry to The Barclays Scottish Open at Loch Lomond Golf Club from July 8-11.

The American left-hander once again proved himself one of golf’s most gifted shot-makers during his unforgettable victory at Augusta National recently as he picked up the third Green Jacket, and fourth Major title, of his glittering career.

Mickelson, a winner of 44 titles around the world, will return to the banks of Loch Lomond hoping to improve upon his second place finish of 2007 when he lost out to Frenchman Grégory Havret in a sudden-death play-off.

“Returning to Loch Lomond for The Barclays Scottish Open is always a special week for me,” said Mickelson, who last played at Loch Lomond in 2008. “Everything about the tournament, from the sponsors, to the golf course and the stunning setting at Loch Lomond is as good as it gets in golf and I am proud to be associated with the event.

“I would love to add The Barclays Scottish Open to my list of career wins: to be successful in Scotland, the home of golf, is something that every player would love to have on his resume and I am no different.

“I have been close to winning The Barclays Scottish Open in the past, and it would be great to go one better than in 2007 when I narrowly missed out on the trophy in a play-off.”
