The American star will be up against  three-time European Tour champion and 2018 Ryder Cup winner Hatton, who has a track record of Scottish victories after lifting the Alfred Dunhill Links Championship trophy in 2016 and 2017.
Completing the first set of world-class players for the quick-fire event is Major Champion Graeme McDowell, who counts the 2010 U.S. Open Championship and the 2008 Scottish Open amongst his ten European Tour titles.
