Professional golf returns to Scotland with the Aberdeen Standard Investments Ladies Scottish Open taking place at the Renaissance Club next week (13 – 16 August) behind closed doors. The event organisers have been working closely with the Scottish Government and sponsors, Aberdeen Standard Investments and Visit Scotland, to ensure that the event can go ahead, while adhering to requirements and measures being put in place to keep everyone safe.
While spectators will not be able to attend in person, we encourage you to support the world class field, including seven Scottish Golfers live on Sky Sports and follow their progress on the event’s social media channels. This year’s field for is even stronger than last year with three of the world’s top ten ranked players on the Rolex Women’s World Golf Rankings in the field – Japan’s Nasa Hataoka,(No.5) America’s Danielle Kang (No.2) and Australia’s Minjee Lee (No.8). The tournament invitations were awarded to Japan’s Hinako Shibuno, Scotland’s Catriona Matthew and Gemma Dryburgh along with Nigeria’s first LET player, Georgia Oboh.
The event is supporting the local community by raising funds for the East Lothian Foodbank, part of the Trussell Trust network of foodbanks across the UK. Amongst other fundraising initiatives, Aberdeen Standard Investments will be contributing to a ‘birdie pledge’ to raise money for them (£5 per birdie and £10 per eagle with £1,000 for any aces) over 4 rounds.
