Lane targets ‘tartan treble’ at Turnberry

Senior Open

Barry Lane has set his sights on completing a unique Scottish treble when he attempts to win The Senior Open Championship presented by Rolex at Turnberry from July 26-29. 

The Englishman won his maiden European Tour title at the Scottish Open at Gleneagles in 1988 and also claimed his first European Senior Tour victory at the Scottish Senior Open at Fairmont St Andrews in 2010, a title he successfully defended last season.

Now the former Ryder Cup player is hoping history repeats itself as he targets winning a maiden Major Championship on Scottish soil when The Senior Open Championship presented by Rolex returns to the Ailsa Course for a record seventh time. 

“It would be great to get a Scottish hat-trick,” said the 51 year old. “I obviously won the Scottish Open on The European Tour and then the Scottish Senior Open at Fairmont the past two years and I like the linksy, windy courses so I’m really looking forward to The Senior Open.".
