Week two of the links trilogy takes the European Tour to Gullane for the Aberdeen Standard Investments Scottish Open.
This East Lothian course sits around 20 miles from the Scottish capital, Edinburgh, and is a traditional coastal venue from where there are superb views across the Firth of Forth.
Open for business since 1884, Gullane last staged this event three years ago when American Ricky Fowler came, saw and conquered.
The world No 7 is back in town this week, when he leads a strong US contingent all hoping to pocket valuable links experience ahead of the forthcoming Open Championship at Carnoustie.
On five occasions, Gullane has been used for Open qualifying and can be found less than one mile from Muirfield.
Those golfers hoping to thread the ball accurately along Gullane's fast running, narrow fairways, must steer clear of more than one hundred deep pot bunkers.
This week's Scottish Open is the fifth of eight events that make up the 2018 Rolex Series, and it's worth noting that six of the last eight winners of The Open Championship had played the previous week in its Scottish equivalent.
The 'top seed' in Scotland is world No 3 Justin Rose who has played some of the best and most consistent golf of 2018.
Rose has the ability and game to prosper on any type of course, as he tees-up for the first time since the US Open where he tied-10th.
In addition to Fowler, another leading American taking part is Phil Mickelson who is now one of the leading exponents of links golf, having struggled at such venues during the early part of his career.
Matt Kuchar, runner in last year's Open, was also second when the Scottish Open was held at Gullane in 2015.
The 40-year-old is experiencing one of his less consistent seasons, regarding results, although he does not appear to be playing that badly overall.
One pro who has certainly played consistent golf these past few months is Ian Poulter.
Since the end of March, the 42-year-old has only once finished outside the top 25 from nine starts and was looking suitably relaxed when spotted at Wimbledon on Monday.
Former Open champion Henrik Stenson is hitting plenty of greens in regulation right now, although his most recent victory came in North Carolina last August.
And Russell Knox, who is currently enjoying a hot run of form, tied-10th at Gullane three years ago.
It is difficult to see the champion coming from outside the leading dozen or so players this week but, if you are seeking an outsider to wager some money on, then Peter Uihlein might be worth an each-way punt.
The 28-year-old from Florida has played steadily of late and, at St Andrews five years ago, lost a play-off in the Dunhill Links Championship. He tied-12th at Ballyliffin on Sunday.
Scot Marc Warren usually enjoys himself on home links while it might be worth checking out the SPs on Dylan Frittelli, Adrian Otaegui and Chris Wood.
