“I’ll keep my fingers crossed,” he said. Via Golf Digest.
His clubs never seemed to arrive in time for the first round. His sponsor, PING, is reportedly on site at the Scottish Open and has worked to replace Hovland before the start of the first round.
Hovland is in a featured group with Scotty Scheffler and Jon Rahm.
