Defending champion Rory McIlroy, Xander Schauffele highlight loaded field for 2024 Genesis Scottish Open

Genesis Scottish Open defending champion Rory McIlroy hasn’t played since his devastating loss to Bryson DeChambeau at the 2024 U.S. Open. The Northern Irishman led by two shots at 8 under before playing his final four holes 3 over. Next week, he’ll head back to The Renaissance Club in North Berwick, Scotland.

McIlroy highlights a loaded field that includes 2022 champion Xander Schauffele, Ludvig Aberg, Max Homa, Viktor Hovland, Collin Morikawa, Justin Thomas and Jordan Spieth.

Will Zalatoris is also in the field after his WD from the Rocket Mortgage Classic last week due to injury.

Here’s a look at the field for next week’s 2024 Genesis Scottish Open, the final event before the last men’s major championship of the year, The Open at Royal Troon.
