Two Ayrshire golfers have been called up to the Scotland squad for this week's R&A Men’s Home Internationals.

Stuart Easton from Irvine returns to the squad having featured back in 2019 when Scotland beat Ireland and Wales on the opening two days but lost the title decider 9-6 to England.

Ruben Lindsay from Turnberry on the other hand is making his debut in the upcoming tournament at Hankley Common Golf Club in Surrey.

Scotland Team Captain, Matt Clark says it is fantastic to see the Turnberry golfer make his first appearance as they look to win the Raymond Trophy for the first time since 2012.

”It’s an honour for all the boys to be pulling on the national jersey.

"As we saw at the Olympics there is nothing quite like representing your country no matter your chosen sport.

"We have four debutants in the event and it’s fantastic to see, Ruben Lindsay make his men’s bow and join the seven who have been here before.

"It’s a great mix of youth and experience and it’s time we took the Raymond Trophy back north of the border.”

The Men’s Home Internationals are contested using a round robin match play format in which the 11-man teams play against each other once over the three days.

Individual matches consist of five morning foursomes and 10 afternoon singles with the winner being the country which accumulates the most match points (one point is awarded for a win and 0.5 for a halve).

Ties at the end of the tournament are resolved by counting the number of individual game points the teams earned over the three days.

The Men’s Home Internationals start tomorrow when Scotland take on Ireland and concludes on Friday, with live scoring of the event being available at
