Next month’s Aberdeen Standard Investments Scottish Open will be played in front of a limited number of spectators as the European Tour trials the return of fans to its events.
All revenue from ticket sales will be donated to official charity partner SAMH, Scotland’s national mental health charity.
The Rolex Series event at The Renaissance Club in East Lothian has been rescheduled from its usual July date to October 1-4 due to the Covid-19 pandemic and will be permitted to welcome 650 spectators per day on Saturday and Sunday in addition to players, caddies, limited media and essential personnel.
The controlled return of a strictly limited number of spectators follows the European Tour’s policy of playing events behind closed doors since the full resumption of the season in August.
