He said: "I'm going to play Scottish, so I'm going to play Irish, Scottish and the Open.
"That's a great run of three weeks of links golf and will be a great way to get ready for the Open. I'm excited about that run and to be able to play a lot of links golf in that short time frame.
"Having had such stop-start season with the injury means I need to and really want to play golf.
"One thing you realise when you are injured is how much you want to play and miss playing and I need to play in events to get some momentum and hopefully knock off a couple of really big wins over the summer."
This year's tournament will run from July 13-16 at Dundonald Links.
