The first round of the 2024 British Open gets underway on Thursday from the Renaissance Club in North Berwick, Scotland. The course is 30 kilometres east of Edinburgh, and been the host course of the Scottish Open since 2019. Here are the three golfers we like the most this year. 

Rory McIlroy

The world number two from Holywood, Northern Ireland is the defending champion at the Scottish Open. Last year, McIlroy posted a score of -15 to beat the 2024 Canadian Open champion Robert MacIntyre of Scotland by a stroke. The four-time major champion won the 2011 United States Open, 2012 and 2014 PGA Championship and 2014 British Open. This is his first PGA event since taking a mental break from golf. At the 2024 United States Open last month, McIlroy missed two short putts down the stretch, and lost to Bryson DeChambeau.

Xander Schauffele

The world number three from San Diego has put up together some spectacular results in this time period. They include winning the 2020 Olympic gold medal in Tokyo in 2021, the 2022 Scottish Open, the 2022 Travelers Championship, and the 2024 PGA Championship. At the 2022 Scottish Open, Schauffele had a four round score of -7, and beat American Kurt Kitayama of Chico, California by a stroke.

Matthieu Pavon

The world number 21 from France  is getting a strong look by many golf experts this week as a serious contender. The 2024 Farmers Insurance Open champion has had five top-five finishes this year and now has the chance to play on the PGA Tour on his home continent.
