The best two weeks of armchair links golf gets underway tomorrow with the start of the Aberdeen Asset Management Scottish Open, especially for those of us dying to get across the pond for some links golf only to find another summer coming and going without the opportunity. The next best thing is waking up to a virtual vacation, first at Castle Stuart in the Scottish Highlands and then at Royal Troon southwest of Glasgow on the Firth of Clyde. With the addition of Patrick Reed, J.B. Holmes, and Steve Stricker after the cancellation of the Greenbrier Classic this week, the Scottish Open will have even more of the world's attention. The last time Castle Stuart hosted the event in 2013, Phil Mickelson won and used it as a springboard to capture The Open Championship at Muirfield in dramatic fashion. Next week, NBC and Golf Channel televise its first Open Championship and Golf Channel is televising its first major with close to 50 hours of play, including the final round in its entirety.
