Will Rory McIlroy's performance at the Genesis Scottish Open silence his critics once and for all?

The Genesis Scottish Open is returning home to the Renaissance Club in Scotland. The tournament is set to take place from July 11 to 14. With players like Jordan Spieth, Collin Morikawa, and defending champion Rory McIlroy, the tournament will undoubtedly be a blast. The Northern Irishman has been missing from the course for nearly a month now, and Thursday will mark his first official round after he narrowly missed out on the US Open win. With storylines like this in the making, it’s a no-brainer that tickets are selling quickly! And if you can’t make it to the event in person, don’t worry! We’ve got all the details on how you can catch the action live from home!
