Number of times that Gullane Golf Club in Scotland has played host to the Scottish Open. This year’s edition, which begins Thursday, will be the first since the Scots’ national championship, which dates to 1935, visited Gullane in 2015. That year, American Rickie Fowler birdied three of his last four holes to win the European Tour event that annually serves as a warmup to the British Open (tee times).


Number of former U.S. Women’s Open champions who are entered in the inaugural U.S. Senior Women’s Open, which begins Thursday at Chicago Golf Club in Wheaton, Ill.
