Skol Lager Individual

The Skol Lager Individual was a European Tour golf tournament which was played from 1974 to 1977. The event was a 36-hole strokeplay tournament which preceded the Double Diamond International team event, which was played later the same week. The tournament was called the Double Diamond Strokeplay in 1974 and 1975 and the Double Diamond Individual Championship in 1976.

The 1977 Skol Lager Individual was played over the King's Course at Gleneagles in Scotland on 16 and 17 August. After the 36 holes, Nick Faldo, Craig Defoy and Chris Witcher were tied at 139. Faldo won a playoff at the first extra hole to claim his first European Tour title at the age of twenty.[1]
