I'll Never Get Used to This Spelling...

When I typed abrdn Scottish Open into Google, it promptly responded with "Did you mean aberdeen Scottish Open?"

Apparently I'm not the only one who doesn't understand the logic of this spelling, despite its usage on all the signs and articles I've seen... but that doesn't change the importance of this week.

Defending champion Aaron Rai

The Aberdeen Standard Investments Scottish Open is the second of eight Rolex Series events on the European Tour, which is fitting because this has become a very important event for any player slated to play in THE OPEN the following week. Aaron Rai is the defending champion from the October date of this event in 2020.

This is the third year that the Scottish Open will be staged at The Renaissance Club in North Berwick, Scotland. It's a par-71 links course measuring out at 7293 yards -- and the words links course are key here. Players will be looking to get some practice for Royal St George’s, and The Renaissance Club should provide all the weather and atmosphere necessary to get them in the mood for the 'bigger event' that follows.

I think it's safe to say that Jon Rahm is the primary name on everybody's radar this week. This is his first event since winning the US Open at Torrey and it's hard to believe he won't be amped up for this run of links golf.

GC's coverage starts early Thursday morning at 7:30am ET here in the US and runs until 1pm ET. That's fitting for a big event like this.

Even if they insist on using that weird spelling.
