£60,000 prizefund for 100th 

Scottish PGA Championship

A total prize pot of £60,000 will be up for grabs in the 100th staging of the M and H Logistics Scottish PGA Championship hosted by Gleneagles.
The 72-hole event over the King’s Course on October 17-20 will have £50,000 on offer while a further £10,000 will be in a bonus pool for the Tartan Tour Order of Merit.
"This is the first time that a bonus pool will be in operation and the Order of Merit title race is now our 'Road to Gleneagles'," said PGA in Scotland secretary Shona Malcolm.
"The £50,000 prize fund for the M and H Logistics Scottish PGA Championship hosted by Gleneagles also represents an increase and the aim is to keep raising that over the next four years."
This year's field will comprise of 66 players, with 30-odd spots up for grabs in two separate 18-hole qualifiers taking place at Crieff on Tuesday, August 30 and Wednesday, August 31.
The hopefuls in the first of those events include former European Tour player Steven O'Hara (North Lanarkshire Leisure Ltd) as well as rising Tartan Tour star Louis Gaughan (Bathgate).
And, in the second event, former Scottish PGA champion Gordon Law (Uphall) is joined by the likes of Stephen McAllister (Stephen McAllister Golf), Alan Tait (Dalmahoy), Kenny Hutton (Downfield) and Ailsa Murphy (Gullane).
"We are delighted with the entry for this year's M and H Logistics Scottish PGA Championship, with the two separate qualifying events achieving our aim of giving as many players as possible the chance to secure a spot in the field," added Malcolm.
To mark the event's 100th staging, past champions are being invited to attend a lunch on Sunday, October 16, when a shotgun pro-am will be held on the Queen's Course.
