2016 Aberdeen Asset Management Scottish Open

"I love coming back here. I love Castle Stuart. I’ve loved the golf course even before I played well in 2013. The two years prior I could see how great a golf course it was, what a wonderful design and how fun it was to play.

“It’s got a great mixture of holes, birdie holes, tough pars, great shot-making skills. It gives you a chance to get accustomed to the wind, to the air, the fescue grass, the challenge of links golf, playing the ball on the ground, getting it out of the air.

“But it doesn’t beat you up and punish you the way The Open Championship does. So you arrive at The Open Championship fresh and ready to play, as opposed to worn out already.”

Steve Stricker, the former world No 2, “The course is in great shape, it’s fun to play so I’m excited about the event this week and being here. I can’t believe it’s only seven years old, it looks like it’s been here a long time.”

Patrick Reed, the world No 10, said the course is in “awesome shape. The greens are so pure”.
