All eyes will be on defending Scottish Open champion Rory McIlroy at The Renaissance Club this week, with the Northern Irishman making his first appearance since his gut-wrenching US Open defeat in June.

With The Open taking place at Royal Troon next week, it will be interesting to see how the world number two performs in the con-sanctioned event in North Berwick and just how much that Major slip at Pinehurst has affected him.

There is also action to get stuck into across the pond in Kentucky at the ISCO Championship, which is also a co-sanctioned tournament.

Back our huge 2,855/1 each-way double here

Scottish Open winner prediction – Aaron Rai at 50/1

The Renaissance Club hosts the Scottish Open for the sixth year in a row and there looks to be a strong chance a former champion at this venue can come out on top again. McIlroy, I hear you shout. No, Aaron Rai is the headline selection and he will be a juicy price given the bigger names that will be teeing it up here.

Englishman Rai lifted the trophy in 2020, overcoming Tommy Fleetwood in a playoff, and his form has really picked up on the PGA Tour over the last couple of months, propelling him to a career-high world ranking of 53rd.

The 29-year-old has always been a stellar tee-to-green player – he ranks 10th in strokes gained in this category on the US circuit – but putting deficiencies have halted his progress and a cold flat stick just won’t suffice this week.

It is, therefore, encouraging to see Rai’s putting numbers over the last two tournaments, which coincide with him starting work with putting coach John Graham prior to the Rocket Mortgage Classic. The Englishman was 10th in strokes gained putting in Detroit before he topped the charts at the John Deere last week.

Something has certainly clicked on the greens for Rai and it would be no surprise to see him claim the Scottish Open spoils for the second, a victory that would also secure his spot at The 152nd Open.

ISCO Championship winner prediction – Sam Ryder at 55/1

Since moving to Keene Trace Golf Club in 2018, the ISCO Championship, previously known as the Barbasol Championship, has proven to be a birdie-fest with -21 or better the winning score.

That means the remit for success this week, like it has been on the PGA Tour of late, is a hot putter and that brings Sam Ryder into the mix.

The 34-year-old American missed three cuts in a row before recording a confidence-boosting T34 finish at last week’s John Deere Classic and he should contend in this lower-grade event.

Ryder has the best putting average statistic in the field – ranking 15th – and he finished seventh and third on his first two trips to this course.
