2024 Genesis Scottish Open Tournament preview

The Genesis Scottish Open is this week, and the PGA Tour has a double-header this week with the DP World Tour. Renaissance Club is very much a wind-dependent course in terms of defending par, so weather is obviously a huge factor this week.

2024 Genesis Scottish Open Tournament rankings: Top 10 players

1. Collin Morikawa: Morikawa hasn't had a bad tournament since the Valero Texas Open. Expect that to continue.

2. Xander Schauffele: Schauffele's year has been tremendous, and I don't see a reason for that to stop.

3. Rory McIlroy: Look, none of us know where McIlroy's head is after the US Open. But he's still a great player and the defending champion.

4. Ludvig Aberg: Aberg may or may not be ready for a super-windy tournament, if that shows up, but his game is amazing.

5. Min Woo Lee: Lee probably should have won in Detroit, but that was a breakthrough from the low 20s.

6. Hideki Matsuyama: Hideki has been largely good all year, and I think he's ready to win again (maybe even an Open).

7. Aaron Rai: Rai is a past winner of this tournament, and he's been on a roll of late, so checking all the boxes.

8. Sungjae Im: Im continues playing great all-around golf, and he has to be considered a serious threat this week.

9. Viktor Hovland: I'm not totally sure where Hovland's game is at this point, but I think it's in decent shape.

10. Davis Thompson: Thompson just won in a go-low tournament and has been great for a month and a half now.
