Rickie Fowler Rules Out Scottish Open 2013

American golfer Rickie Fowler has ruled out taking part in the Scottish Open next year as he hopes to make the most of his time in preparing for The Open Championship at Muirfield in 2013. The youngster is an avid fan of links golf and he enjoyed a brilliant and solid weekend at The Open Championship this year at the Royal Lytham & St. Annes in Turnberry in spite of not seriously challenging for the title.

And the 23 year old has already started looking forward to The Open Championship of next year that takes place in the East Coast of Scotland but has ruled out building up to the tournament at Castle Stuart. The American finished with a score of three over par after he carded a 70 in the final round on Sunday and according to him, he is new to the system of rotation in the Open and added that he will probably do the same things that he has been doing over the last couple of years and will come over to the British shores as early as possible.

Rickie Fowler went on state that in the usual cases, he plays on Sundays and start his preparation for the week from there. However, he added that it would be difficult for him to play in the Scottish Open the previous week as it would rule out his chances of seeing the course for The Open Championship till the Monday if he were to make the cut at Castle Stuart.

Fowler also made it clear that he would like to have some time seeing and hitting balls on a course that he has never played or even seen in his life. And this statement almost effectively rules out the participation of Rickie Fowler at next year’s Scottish Open.
