The 2004 Daily Record Players Championship was a professional ranking snooker tournament that took place between 3–11 April 2004 at the S.E.C.C in Glasgow, Scotland. It was the seventh and penultimate ranking event of the 2003/2004 season.[1]

This tournament was a re-branding of the Scottish Open which had been held under various names since 1981. It was also the last time the tournament was played until 2012, when it became a minor-ranking event as part of the Players Tour Championship. It became a full ranking tournament again in 2016.

Twelve years after his last ranking tournament success, Jimmy White aged 41 won his tenth ranking tournament by defeating Paul Hunter 9–7 in the final. This was White's first success in the tournament, having last appeared in the final in 1988 International Open, when he lost 12-6 to Steve Davis. It was also Hunter's last appearance in a ranking final.[2]
