Fred Couples has confirmed he will compete in the Barclays Scottish Open at Loch Lomond from July 10-13.

The 1992 US Masters champion will be making his bow at the event which comes the week before the Open at Sandwich.

He joins fellow Americans Ricky Barnes, Chad Campbell, Ben Crane, John Daly, Phil Mickelson, Jerry Pate, Tim Petrovic and John Rollins in the field.

Couples said: “I have heard so many great things about Loch Lomond and about the tournament, that I am really looking forward to coming over to Scotland next month to experience the magic for myself.”

Couples, who has 15 US PGA Tour victories to his name, has enjoyed a great year so far with victory in the Shell Houston Open in April and top-10 finishes in the Nissan Open in February and the Players Championship in March.
