Calum Scott

Calum Scott

A week after going out at the quarter-final stage of the Amateur Championship for the second time – and on this occasion from two up with four holes to play against eventual winner Jacob Skov Olesen – Scott claimed a place at Royal Troon through the Open Amateur Series, which was introduced in 2023.

A week after going out at the quarter-final stage of the Amateur Championship for the second time – and on this occasion from two up with four holes to play against eventual winner Jacob Skov Olesen – Scott claimed a place at Royal Troon through the Open Amateur Series, which was introduced in 2023.

A closing four-under-par 68 at the European Amateur Championship in Denmark on June 29 lifted the Walker Cup player into fourth place at the event and completed a month’s work which also saw him finish joint runner-up in the St Andrews Links Trophy, the third counting tournament in the series.

It was at the Home of Golf as well that the 20-year-old represented Britain and Ireland against the United States last year and he won both his opening-day matches to help his side into a three-point lead before the Americans fought back to win by the same margin.

Scott, whose consistency took him into the top 20 of the amateur world rankings, has been on a golf scholarship to Texas Tech just like his brother Sandy – a member of the winning Walker Cup side in 2019 - and Ludvig Aberg.
