The first Invitational was played at Deeside in 2011 and will now be held annually. I wanted to host a tournament on the Scottish circuit to give the young Pros, top amateurs and some seasoned campaigners a quality tournament to compete in. The tournament is a 54 hole strokeplay Championship event, preceded by a Pro-Am.

In 2015, the event will be supported by Aberdeen Asset Management, Farmfoods, Saltire Energy, Simmons & Co., Statoil.  I am grateful to all of these companies for their backing.
