About the Trust Golf Women's Scottish Open
Playing at over 500 yards, the 14th hole at Dundonald Links will test players decision making from tee to green. As is the case with most Scottish golf, weather can play a significant factor in scoring: the last time the Scottish Open was played at Dundonald, scoring improved by about three tenths of a stroke when the winds died down.
Trust Golf Women's Scottish Open Key Decision
Weighing their position after their drive in the lie, players must decide whether to reach this green in two or lay up to their preferred distance. Compared to the average LPGA Tour drive distance, an additional 10 yards of distance off the tee is expected to increase a player’s likelihood to go for the green by 10%.
Trust Golf Women's Scottish Open Insight
With 250 yards remaining to the center of the green, 42% of the field is expected to go for the green with their second shot, with 9% of the field expected to reach the putting surface. Off the tee, finding the fairway is expected to triple a player’s success rate and lead to .2 and .4 strokes gained over those that find the rough or bunker.
