The Scottish Open, a prelude to next week’s British Open, commenced on Thursday. Englishman Lee Westwood is on top after day one, and a win here would see him reclaim the number 1 ranking from compatriot Luke Donald. Westwood is tied at 7 under with Chilean Mark Tullo, who is a rookie on the European Tour. The pair are followed closely a host of big names, including Luke Donald (-5) and Colin Montgomerie (-5) who needs a top 5 finish to qualify for his 22nd straight British Open.
Westwood is favourite at 4.00 to take the honours, while young Mark Tullo offers good value at 51.00. Can he hold his nerve? Another name to watch out for is last year’s winner (albeit at a different course) Edoardo Molinari, who sits two shots off the lead.
