Germany is the destination for the DP World Tour this week, as the players head to Hamburg for the Porsche European Open.
It’s a strong field this week, and with European Ryder Cup captain Henrik Stenson teeing it up, players will be hoping to impress.
Last week’s winner, Victor Perez, who is based in Dundee, is set to play, as well as Scotland’s top ranked male player, Robert MacIntyre. MacIntyre will lead a strong Scottish challenge, that includes recent winner Ewen Ferguson.
The players will be tasked with overcoming Green Eagles Golf Course, which is nicknamed the Green Monster by locals, thanks to its length. However, whenthe event was first played back in 1978, it was played around England, Scotland, and the K Club in Ireland. Between 2010 and 2014 the European Open wasn’t contested, but returned in 2015 to Germany, where it has been played since.
Last year, it was Englishman Marcus Armitage who triumphed, in a 54-hole event, due to restrictions at the time. This year, the tournament is back to four full rounds for the first time since 2019.
With that being said, let’s take a look at all the details ahead of the event getting underway on Thursday…
