Scotland has a history of producing exceptional golfers. Golf is super popular there and gets a lot of attention. Scottish golfers are aiming high for the upcoming year, aspiring for amazing achievements. Their skill is undeniable! In an interview with the Scotsman, Bob MacIntyre, Grant Forrest, Ewen Ferguson, and Connor Syme talked about their favorite events from 2023. Bob MacIntyre was quick to pick his favorite event.

“The Genesis Scottish Open. I lived a childhood dream (by getting himself in the mix in the final round). I didn’t quite get the trophy (being pipped by Rory McIlroy’s sensational birdie-birdie finish at The Renaissance Club), but it was still a dream.”- Bob MacIntyre said.

Grant Forrest is a golfer who has a special respect for the crowd and feels great when he sees that the atmosphere is at its peak. Based on that, it seems that Forrest realized what his favorite events are.

“The Irish Open has always been good to me and, after the Scottish Open, it probably has the best crowds. It’s not just the numbers. It’s a very golfing crowd as well. They are there for the golf and not just a day out.”

Ewen Ferguson shares his opinion

Playing on home soil is a special feeling that can hardly be described. Ewen Ferguson is a golfer who likes to play on home soil and enjoys the attention of the fans.

"The Genesis Scottish Open because I just love playing in Scotland and the grind of trying to do well on home soil. It’s such a big event in my own country and I love feeling that I’m a big deal in my own country when I play in it.”

Connor Syme has a favorite event, but he didn't forget to mention the rewards either.

“I love the Genesis Scottish Open and being our home Open it is so special. But the reward for getting to the DP World Tour Championship is special and there’s no cut as well (laughing). That’s a nice bonus at the end of the year.”
