The Scottish Open is a darts tournament organised by the British Darts Organisation and has been staged every year in February since 1995. The current venue is the Normandy Cosmopolitan Hotel in Renfrew.[1] In a remarkable series of results, no player has managed to win the competition more than once. In 2013, Wesley Harms became the 20th different winner in the 20 years that the tournament has been staged.

Previous winners[edit]

Previous version[edit]

There was a previous incarnation of the event staged in 1983, which was won by Australia's Russell Stewart who remains the youngest winner of the competition at the age of 23.[2] Although Stewart was one of the most successful Australian players of the 1980s, this was the only title he managed to win in the UK. It helped him qualify for the world championships for the first time in 1984.

The BDO created two new events (the England Open and the Scottish Open) in 1995, which could have been in response to the split in darts which had seen many of the top players leave the organisation to start the WDC (now the PDC).
