Last Chance to Watch Links Golf for a While

The LPGA and LET team up once again this week to present the Aberdeen Standard Investments Ladies Scottish Open. This year it's played at the Renaissance Club in North Berwick, Scotland -- the same as the men's Scottish Open -- so we'll get some "ladies' links" after all.

Defending champions Ariya Jutanugarn

Tony Jesselli has posted one of his customary excellent previews at his site, so I'm linking you to it here. I'll just note that Ariya Jutanugarn is the defending champion, albeit at a different course, and Tony is reporting that the field isn't as strong this week as it was last year. I imagine that's a response to playing two majors in two consecutive weeks. With a one week break coming after the Scottish Open anyway, this is an easy way to get two weeks off.

The most notable player to skip this week -- in my opinion anyway -- is Jin Young Ko. Jin is the hot player on Tour right now, while Ariya has cooled off after last year's torrid run. Between Jin's absence and Ariya's lull, this could be an opportune time for some of the lower-ranked players to steal a bigtime win.

GC's coverage begins Thursday at 10:30am ET, which I'm guessing will be late round live coverage.

As I said earlier, this is likely our last chance to see links golf until the Alfred Dunhill event in September, so don't miss it!
