Mickelson has a new pair of Scots to open the week at Castle Stuart


Phil Mickelson isn't Scottish, but the 11th hour entry into the Aberdeen Asset Management Scottish Open is paired with a few for the first two rounds. Mickelson plays from the first tee Castle Stuart on Thursday at 1:15 p.m. local time with Paul Lawrie and Martin Laird.

World No. 1 and defending Scottish Open champion Luke Donald tees off at 8:15 a.m. on the 10th tee with Richie Ramsay and Ernie Els.

Padraig Harrington, who has shown a resurgence in form of late, is a group later with French Open winner Marcel Siem and the struggling Paul Casey.

Long-hitting Nicolas Colsaerts is grouped with three-time winner this season Branden Grace and Colin Montgomerie. They go from the first tee at 1:05 p.m.
