WITB Aaron Rai


We find out what's in the bag of Scottish Open champion Aaron Rai, the European Tour golfer who is coached by Me and My Golf stars Andy Proudman and Piers Ward.

Aaron Rai lifted his second European Tour title with victory in the Scottish Open at the Renaissance Club. The 25-year-old beat fellow countryman Tommy Fleetwood with a par at the first play-off hole after both players had finished tied at 11-under.

Rai produced a spectacular weekend of golf, overcoming horrendous weather in Saturday's third round to shoot a one-under 70 before taking full advantage of more benign conditions in his seven-under 64 on Sunday (highlights below).

The Wolverhampton golfer's second victory comes just a week after he finished runner-up in the Irish Open at Galgorm Castle Golf Club and 22 months after his maiden triumph - a  wire-to-wire win at the Hong Kong Open.

As well as being coached by fellow Black Country men and Me and My Golf YouTube stars Andy Proudman and Piers Ward, Rai is also renowned for wearing two gloves and using iron headcovers. He is non-contracted when it comes his equipment but the majority of his golf clubs are made by TaylorMade.
