Woosnam set for Fairmont St Andrews return
August 2, 2011

Former Ryder cup captain Ian Woosnam will be looking to cement his position in the European Senior Tour order of merit when he returns to Fairmont St Andrews for the Cleveland Golf/Srixon Scottish Senior Open from August 19-21.

The Welshman finished tied-19th last year at the five-star Scottish resort, 11 shots behind the winner, but will be confident as he heads back out on The Torrance course after finishing two-under-par in last month's Senior Open at Walton Heath for a share of 16th place.

The Torrance course has hosted the Scottish tournament for the last two years and is a layout which has proven popular with competitors, none more so than the man who designed it, Sam Torrance, who will be looking to give fans something to celebrate by securing a home victory.

A plethora of Ryder Cup stars will also be in attendance, including Costantino Rocca, Des Smyth, Eamonn Darcy and Antonio Garrido, along with defending champion Barry Lane , 2009 winner Glenn Ralph, BBC analyst and former Ryder Cup captain Mark James and Britain 's most successful amateur golfer Gary Wolstenholme.

Fairmont St Andrews boasts two first-class 18-hole layouts in The Torrance and The Kittocks courses. Both have benefited as part of a £17m redevelopment the luxury resort has recently undergone, which also saw improvements to the lavish spa complex and five-star hotel.
