American Ricky Fowler has won the Scottish Open, after hitting a final round of 68, to finish at 12 under par, one shot ahead of compatriot Matt Kuchar and France’s Raphael Jacquelin.

Fowler fell two shots behind the pace after bogeying the 14th hole, but responded to birdie three of the last four holes to clinch the trophy.

The 26-year-old now looks forward to the Open this week, where he hopes to emulate Phil Mickelson by winning both the Scottish and Open Championships.

Meanwhile, former Ryder Cup captain Paul McGinley believes Jordan Spieth will struggle at the Open.

He said Speith isn’t one of the bigger hitters on the tour, and that the course may prove too long for the Masters Champion.

McGinley added that this will put too much emphasis on Speith’s putting, as he can’t reach the green as fast as some of the bigger hitters.
