LPGA Visits Scotland for Trust Golf Women's Scottish Open

LPGA Visits Scotland for Trust Golf Women’s Scottish Open

Sixteen major winners tee off at the Trust Golf Women’s Scottish Open this weekend before next week’s AIG Women’s Open Championship. Sandwiched between that major and last week’s Olympics, several of the LPGA’s top golfers will challenge themselves at Dumbarnie Links, which just opened last year and is hosting its first LPGA event. The course is just 12 miles away from historic St. Andrews.

Nelly Korda, who won the gold medal in Tokyo last week, is not playing, nor are the other top-seven golfers in the world, but the field is still strong nonetheless. One of the betting favorites is Minjee Lee (+1800), who scored her first major win last month at the Evian Championship and is the highest-ranked golfer in the field. This will be her first LPGA event since that win, but she did compete in the Olympics and finished tied for 29th. She was the runner-up in this event in 2018, and a win here would mark an interesting accomplishment for her family, as brother Min Woo won the men’s Scottish Open back in June.

If you’re looking for some home-country favorites to bet on, you can get good odds on any of the following: Carly Booth, Kylie Henry, Michele Thomson, and Kelsey McDonald. They all will put their experience on links-style courses to good use.

Stacey Lewis is the defending champion of the event and is again competing this year. Also in the field is last year’s Women’s Open champion, Sophia Popov. Lydia Ko is the overall favorite coming into the tournament at +1000.

Other major winners in the field include In Gee Chun, Georgia Hall, Ariya Jutanugarn, and Patty Tavatanakit.
