Henrik Stenson is looking forward to returning to action in Scotland in the Aberdeen Standard Investments Scottish Open.
The Swede will be going back to Gullane Golf club for the first time since his amateur days but he is looking forward to his return.
The 2016 Open winner uses the Scottish Open as part of his warm up for the Open the following week and he is looking forward to repeating his preparation in Scotland.
Stenson told the European Tour website: “It?s been a long time for me since I played at Gullane. I played the British Amateur back in the day, probably in 1998, at Muirfield and Gullane. I didn?t play when Rickie won in 2015 so it?s kind of fresh to me in a way. It?s a good track and I?m looking forward to coming back.
?The times when I have played the Scottish Open in the week before The Open I feel like I?ve come in ready and prepared and that?s when I?ve had my best results.
“I did that in 2013 when I finished second to Phil at Muirfield, then I skipped it for a couple of years to try a different set up and that didn?t work out too well for me.
“I went back to the original plan in 2016 and we all know how that finished up.”
