This week the DP World Tour heads to Scotland for one of its most popular events with the 21st staging of the Alfred Dunhill Links Championship. Danny Willett returns to defend his title at the festival of links golf held over Carnoustie, Kingsbarns and the Old Course at St Andrews, with Major Champions Rory McIlroy and Matt Fitzpatrick headlining a stellar field also containing World Number 15 Billy Horschel, recently crowned BMW PGA Championship winner Shane Lowry and tournament specialists Tyrrell Hatton and Pádraig Harrington. In eight DP World Tour appearances this season, Rory McIlroy has finished outside the top ten just once when he was 12th at the year’s opener in Abu Dhabi. He has finished runner-up at the Masters Tournament and the BMW PGA Championship, while on the PGA TOUR he won twice en route to claiming the FedEx Cup. A three-time runner-up at this event and renowned links player, McIlroy will also have the incentive of winning the team event alongside dad Gerry. Danny Willett had to wait nine months to claim another worldwide top ten but since July he has finished ninth at the Omega European Masters and was only denied victory at the PGA TOUR’s Fortinet Championship recently after a three-putt and Max Homa chip-in on the 72nd hole.
