Record crowds packed the galleries the last time the Senior Open was held in Scotland, at Royal Troon in 2008, and discounted advance tickets are now available for this year's event, which will see American Loren Roberts defend the title he won at Sunningdale last summer. The event takes place from 22-25 July – the week after the Open Championship at St Andrews – and, if bought in advance, day passes and season tickets are currently available at 16.50 and 60 respectively. On the gate they will cost 25 and 70.
Scottish players in the field will include two-time major champion Sandy Lyle, former Ryder Cup captain and 2009 Senior Tour Order of Merit winner Sam Torrance, and former PGA champion Andrew Oldcorn, who will be making his Senior Open debut at Carnoustie.
Spectators can buy tickets by visiting www.senioropengolf.com or by calling 0800 023 2557 or on the gate.
