Scottish Open 2023

Scottish Open 2023 had a very competitive field with 8 players of the top 10 in the world. For three days Sebastian was playing world class golf. Only three players were better from Tee to Green (including the winner Rory McIlroy and worlds no 1 Scottie Scheffler). No-one had a better record in scrambling and sand saves.

The final round on Sunday had an early start (06:45) from both Tee 1 and 10 in order to avoid strong winds, forecasted to the afternoon. Well, the afternoon came ”early” so most of the round was played in stormy weather, which of course gave many of the players trouble and challenges to handle.

First 8 holes destroyed the possibilities for a top result while the last 10 was more successful and should give Sebastian a good feeling into the next tournament which is played in Tahoe Mt. Club, Truckee, CA. As part of the Strategic Alliance with the PGA TOUR, the Barracuda Championship provides another US-based playing opportunity for DP World Tour members, in addition to last weeks Barbasol Championship, which was played att the same time as Scottish Open.
