Justin Thomas admits Genesis Scottish Open victory would be even sweeter if it came at the expense of one of LIV Golf’s rebels.

P World Tour players who took part in the inaugural LIV Golf event at Centurion Club last month have been fined £100,000 and banned from the Scottish Open but successfully appealed the sanctions on Monday.

Ian Poulter, Justin Harding, Adrian Otaegui and Branden Grace were then added to the field at the Renaissance Club, with Otaegui and Harding eliminated in the first group on Thursday and Poulter and Grace in the same position on Friday.

Asked about the possibility of playing with one of the quartet later in the week, US PGA Champion Thomas said, “If I know all four then it’s fine. It will be easy.

“But even if I don’t, I don’t necessarily think we’re going to be showing anything like shenanigans out there or teasing each other.

“At the end of the day they are here for the same reason we are and that is simply trying to play well and give yourself an opportunity to win the Scottish Open.

“If it comes to that and you have an opportunity to beat one of them to win the tournament, maybe it’s a little better, but I’m sure they would say the same.”

Thomas and Rory McIlroy have emerged as the PGA Tour’s most prominent supporters in their battle against Saudi-backed rivals, but the two-time Major winner is keen to get his game ahead of next week’s 150th Open Championship at St Andrews focus .

“I’ll be the first to say I’ve emotionally wrapped myself up from time to time and I’m allowed to do that. I’m passionate about it and I feel a certain way,” said Thomas.

“But at the end of the day, the first thing I and others have to focus on is playing good golf because that’s the top priority.

“But if we can keep our focus on improving our product, making our product the best it can be, then at the end of the day we don’t have to worry.

“You never know what’s going to happen in terms of other entities or other things that get thrown out there, but I think we’re all very obviously happy with where we are and we just keep making progress and changes that are going to.” good of all.”
