Fowler returns to Scottish Open following '15 win

Fowler returns to Scottish Open following '15 win

"I tried to push a little too much and tried to make things happen too much at Augusta, and that definitely helped me at Erin Hills", Fowler said.

The current world number 15 and former Masters champion is contesting the Scottish Open which begins Thursday for the first time since sharing fourth place behind Germany's Martin Kaymer at Loch Lomond in 2009.

The fire is back in those eyes and how can he not feel inspired when, along with is wife and four children, he is staying in a hotel overlooking Prestwick Golf Club, the links where the first Open Championship was played 167 years ago?

After England's Callum Shinkwin had set the early clubhouse target after he eagled the last to complete a 67, Fowler outshone playing-partners McIlroy and Henrik Stenson and the American was one of only four players in the 156-man field to keep a bogey off his card.

"Anything that comes my way from here would be a bonus", said Harrington, who has played just nine events in 2017 and underwent surgery on a trapped nerve in his neck in March.

Rory McIlroy vented his anger with an F-Bomb en route to shooting an opening 2-over 74 at the Scottish Open. "And again, it's just putting it all together, not just for one day but for four days; and not just for four days, to do it week-in and week-out", said the Northern Irishman, who has just started a run of seven events potentially in an eight-week stretch. 3 and 5, both par fives, and got into red figures for the first time this week with a close-range birdie at No. 7. So new irons in the bag, 718s. It was found by a scorer in an unplayable lie, so Harrington took a penalty drop, hacked out and made the putt.

"It was very much a sign of the frustration that was building", admitted Shinkwin, who beat Matt Fitzpatrick to win the English Amateur title in 2013 and played alongside the three-time European Tour victor in the Walker Cup later that year.

Adam Scott swells the regular ranks of Australians on the European Tour this week when he tees up at the Scottish Open as part of his final preparations for The Open Championship.

Fox played his way into the field at Birkdale courtesy of his T4 result at last week's DDF Irish Open, his second consecutive top-10 in the rich Rolex Series of tournaments which have debuted this year.

From 4 over after four holes, McIlroy recovered to 1 over after 16, with three of his four birdies coming via tap-ins on par fives.

This week's Scottish Open is the fourth of the Series which offers US$7,000,000 minimum purses and are created to attract the world's best players to Europe.
