Golf superstars have been enjoying East Lothian courses ahead of the Genesis Scottish Open.

Thousands of spectators are expected at the Renaissance Golf Club, by Dirleton, this week to see the likes of Rory McIIroy and Scottie Scheffler tee off in the glamour event.

But a couple of notable players have already been spotted in North Berwick.

On Monday, US Ryder Cup stars Rickie Fowler and Justin Thomas were spotted playing North Berwick's West Links course.

The PGA tour players completed a full round of golf, accompanied by Justin Thomas' father, Mike Thomas, and a caddy.

North Berwick Golf Club shared the picture on social media, with all four of them looking very happy, probably due to the rare good weather.

The club said: "Welcome back to the West Links, Rickie Fowler and Justin Thomas.

"A beautiful afternoon for some pre-Scottish Open practice as US Ryder Cup teammates Rickie Fowler and Justin Thomas returned to North Berwick with caddie and dad.

"We hope you enjoyed your round, guys." Fowler and Thomas tee up at the Genesis Scottish Open on Thursday.

Stuart Bayne, general manager, North Berwick Golf Club, said: "We are very fortunate as a club and a course to have professionals leave their working week to come and play on the West Links. It reaffirms our iconic status.

"We are very flattered when professionals golfers come and use our facilities. One thing they regularly remark on is the fun and enjoyment they have, playing the West Links and that is why they come down to enjoy the unique features.

"It can never be replicated in the world and everyone leaves saying how much fun and enjoyment they have had and that is something we certainly provide."
