Scotland’s golfing legend, Colin Montgomerie, is set to return to his homeland for the 2024 Senior Open Presented by Rolex, scheduled from July 25-28 at the prestigious Carnoustie Golf Links.

This marks the third time Carnoustie will host Europe’s only Senior Major Championship.

Carnoustie Golf Links, a course renowned for its challenging layout and historical significance, will once again welcome some of the biggest names in golf.

Montgomerie, an eight-time European Number One and a staple of Ryder Cup history, will join a field of elite players competing for the title in Angus.

Montgomerie’s illustrious career boasts 31 victories on the DP World Tour, nine wins on the senior circuit, including three Senior Majors, and a memorable Alfred Dunhill Links Championship victory in 2005, which was played across Carnoustie, St Andrews, and Kingsbarns. His return to Carnoustie is eagerly anticipated by fans and peers alike.

A Summer of Golf in Scotland

The Senior Open is a highlight in a packed summer of golf in Scotland, following the Genesis Scottish Open and The Open at Royal Troon, and preceding the Legends Tour’s flagship event, the Staysure PGA Seniors Championship.

“Scotland will be showcasing itself to the whole world this summer and I am incredibly excited and proud to be teeing it up at Carnoustie,” Montgomerie said.

“Carnoustie has shown time and again its quality as a Major Championship venue and I know my fellow players are all looking forward to heading back there this year.

It’s been eight years since The Senior Open has graced the Championship Course and that just makes the appetite even greater.

“The Senior Open is always one of the highlights of our schedule and getting the opportunity to play in front of Scottish crowds elevates it even further.”

Star-Studded Line-Up

The competition is set to feature a stellar line-up including defending champion Alex Čejka, who triumphed over Pádraig Harrington in a dramatic play-off at Royal Porthcawl last year, and two-time Masters Champion José María Olazábal.

The Championship has previously seen victories from greats like Bernhard Langer in 2010 and Paul Broadhurst in 2016, making Carnoustie a site of memorable golf history.
