Ricky Barnes to play in Scottish Open

Ricky Barnes, the reigning U.S. Amateur champion who was the low amateur at The Masters, has announced he will play in the £2.2 million Barclays Scottish Open, which takes place at Loch Lomond Golf Club from July 10-13.

After outscoring playing partner Tiger Woods by seven shots in the opening round, the 22-year-old American went on to finish the year's first major in 21st place.

Scottish Amateur champion Andrew McArthur has also accepted an invitation to play at Loch Lomond, and will challenge Barnes for the low amateur prize. McArthur, who plays at Windyhill Golf Club on the outskirts of Glasgow, won the 2002 Scottish Amateur Championship at Western Gailes after a closely fought battle with Scott Jamieson.

The 24-year-old, who is on a golf scholarship at Pfeiffer College in North Carolina, finished ninth in the Scottish Golf Union Order of Merit last season and rose to fifth place in the American college rankings earlier this year.
