How much prize money does Scottish Open winner get? How to watch on TV, ticket details for Renaissance Club

Golf correspondent Martin Dempster tees up the vital info for this week’s big event in East Lothian

Due to its coveted pre-Open slot and now being co-sanctioned by the DP World Tour and PGA Tour, the Genesis Scottish Open is one of golf’s biggest events in terms of its stature.

Boasting a $9 million pot as part of the Rolex Series, it is also one of the richest events on the DP World Tour schedule when it comes to prize-money and, in some cases, that means it’s a career-changing opportunity.

The winner at The Renaissance Club on Sunday will pick up just under £1.2 million – he’ll also pick up the keys for an Electrified Genesis GV70 £64,300 – while around £750,000 will go to the player who finishes second on the East Lothian coast.

Through being the runner up to Rory McIlroy 12 months ago, Bob MacIntyre teed up his Ryder Cup appearance in Rome later in the year and also took a giant step towards securing a PGA Tour card for this season.

He’s now back on Scottish soil for the first time this year as the RBC Canadian Open champion, having landed that title last month with his dad Dougie caddying for him.

How to watch the Genesis Scottish Open

Exclusive live coverage of the event is on Sky Sports, with Edinburgh man Ewen Murray once again leading the commentary team.

Fellow Scot Andrew Coltart will also be among those describing the action while the on-course experts are led by Australian Wayne Riley, who won this event at Carnoustie in 1995.

Coverage on both Thursday and Friday starts at 8.30am on Sky Sports Main Event and Sky Sports Golf before continuing on Sky Sports Golf from 1pm onwards.

It’s a later start on Saturday and Sunday due to the leaders not heading out until after 3pm, which is partly down to the US TV timings.

Highlights are being shown on BBC 1 on both Saturday and Sunday while live updates will be provided throughout the event on BBC Radio Scotland by Brian McLauchlin and Iain Carter on BBC Radio Five Live.
