Michael Campbell to play in Scottish Open

Michael Campbell, winner of the US Open Championship at Pinehurst No.2 in North Carolina, has confirmed that he will be at Loch Lomond in two weeks time to compete for the coveted Barclays Scottish Open title.  The £2.4 million event takes place at Loch Lomond Golf Club from July 7-10, 2005.

Campbell, who now tops The European Tour Order of Merit and is ranked Number 23 in the Official World Golf Ranking, has been a regular contender at Loch Lomond and last year finished in second place just one shot behind winner, Thomas Levet, with a 14 under par total of 270.  

Campbell's recent US Open victory brings the total number of Major winners set to compete at Loch Lomond to eight.  They include Ernie Els, Retief Goosen, Paul Lawrie, Tom Lehman, Sandy Lyle, José Maria Olazábal and Ian Woosnam. 

Keith Williams, Chief Executive of Loch Lomond Golf Club, said:

"We are looking forward to welcoming Michael back to Loch Lomond again this year.  He has always played well here so perhaps we will see him follow in Retief Goosen's footsteps, who after winning his first US Open in 2001 went on to win the Scottish Open two weeks later." 

Spectators can take advantage of special discounts by booking tickets for this year's event on line at www.barclaysscottishopen.co.uk   In line with the policy embraced by The European Tour, the Royal and Ancient Golf Club and The Golf Foundation, of making the game more accessible to the younger generation, The Barclays Scottish Open is also pleased to offer free entry to accompanied juniors under the age of 16.
