Longniddry Golf Club stages 2020 Aberdeen Standard Investments Open Qualifier
Following the success of this year’s qualifier for the Aberdeen Standard Investments Scottish Open at The Renaissance Club, Longniddry Golf Club has been asked to stage the 2020 qualifying event for the third year in succession. The two-round event will take place on July 4th & 5th and will see four players secure spots in the $7 million Rolex Series event to be held at The Renaissance Club in East Lothian from 11-14th July.
Scott Henry, the last man into the field, won the Aberdeen Standard Investments Scottish Open qualifier after beating overnight leader Calum Hill in a play-off.
Henry, who only got into the field on a sponsor’s invitation after Connor Syme withdrew, clinched his fourth Scottish Open appearance in style in the 36-hole shoot-out.
“Being a Scot and a proud Scot, it means a lot to be back playing in the Scottish Open, which is a massive event with massive prize-money and a great tournament,” said a beaming Henry, who made the cut in both 2013 and 2014 before making an early exit two years ago.
Longniddry Golf course was designed by Harry S Colt and is the first links course at the start of the East Lothian golf trail. The par 68 course is a good test for any golfer and is no push over with 8 par 4s measuring over 400 yards (365 m), many raised large greens and approaches that you would expect of a links layout.
