Justin Thomas and Jon Rahm CONFIRM their places at next month's SCOTTISH OPEN

Two of golf's biggest stars are set to light up the Aberdeen Standard Investments Scottish Open with Justin Thomas and Jon Rahm confirming their participation in the second Rolex Series event of the 2021 Race to Dubai.

The two former World No. 1 players bring further star power to an impressive field gathering at The Renaissance Club on July 8th and fans can book their places to take in the action now.

Rahm was the number one player in Europe in 2019 as the swashbuckling Spaniard continued to impress on the world stage. The 26-year-old will go in search of a fifth Rolex Series title when he makes his debut in Scotland's national open this summer.

Major winner Thomas returns to the Renaissance Club after recording a top-10 finish on his 2019 debut in the Aberdeen Standard Investments Scottish Open.

The 28-year-old is returning to where it all began, after making his first start as a professional in Scotland at the 2013 Alfred Dunhill Links Championship.

Rahm and Thomas join fellow world top-10 stars Tyrrell Hatton, Collin Morikawa and Xander Schauffele in East Lothian as the tournament once again takes its place in the week before The Open at Royal St George's.

Rahm will attempt to become only the second Spaniard to win the Aberdeen Standard Investments Scottish Open title since the formation of the European Tour, after Rafa Cabrera Bello in 2017.

"I'm looking forward to teeing it up at the Aberdeen Standard Investments Scottish Open for the first time," said Rahm.

"I always enjoy playing in Rolex Series events, and I've had success in them in the past few years, so it will be pretty cool to try to add another title in Scotland this summer ahead of The Open."

 

 

Thomas' impressive CV includes the 2017 US PGA Championship and two World Golf Championship titles and, like Rahm, the American's impressive form in recent years led to a Ryder Cup debut at Le Golf National in 2018.

"I can't wait to get back to Scotland and the Renaissance Club," said Thomas.

"I have a lot of good memories of playing in Scotland and it would be an awesome place to win a first Rolex Series title. I've said before it's a goal of mine to win on different tours and in different countries, and I would love to be successful when I come back to the Aberdeen Standard Investments Scottish Open in July."
