“I have a lot of great memories from playing in Scotland at different points in my career, and this is shaping up to be an exciting summer with the Genesis Scottish Open at the Renaissance Club, followed by the 150th Open in St Andrews,” he said.

“I’ve always said that I want to win around the world, and I would love to build on my previous results in this event and pick up a first Rolex Series title.”

Fitzpatrick, who will be teeing up in the event for a ninth time, came agonisingly close to lifting the trophy for the first time last season before losing in a play-off.

“It’s a tournament that has been ever-present on my schedule throughout my professional career, and it’s exciting to see it co-sanctioned by both the DP World Tour and PGA Tour this season,” said the Englishman.

“I’m looking forward to getting back to the Renaissance Club this summer and heading on to St Andrews the following week.”
