| ||World No. 1 Luke Donald returns to defend his title...Last year, he earned a
4-stroke victory as the tournament was shortened to 54 holes. Castle Stuart
Golf Links was plagued by rain and thunderstorms all week, rendering the
course unplayable for the Saturday of the championship...The field includes
four-time major winner Phil Mickelson, who gained late entry into the event.
