The DP Tour from England moves to Belgium where, from 12 to 15 May in Antwerp, the Soudal Open will be played. The event is back three years after the last time when Guido Migliozzi (it was 2019) celebrated his second victory on the circuit by clearly beating the Dutch Darius Van Driel.
And the Vicenza player, who after a 2021 as a protagonist has no longer been able to play at his levels, will be among the six blues competing on the Rinkven International Golf Club course. With him there is also the Roman Renato Paratore, the Apulian Francesco Laporta, the Nino Bertasio from Brescia, the Florentine Lorenzo Gagli - all called, like Migliozzi, to redeem the exit at the British Masters - and the Turin Edoardo Molinari, 36 / o (last week) in England.
Soudal Open, schedule
The tournament will give away $ 2,000,000 and guarantee key points to qualify for the US Open (June 16-19 in Brookline, Massachusetts). Together with the British Masters, the Dutch Open (26-29 May) and the Porsche European (2-5 June), the Soudal Open represents a stepping stone towards the third men's Major of 2022.
At the end of these four tournaments, the best ten of a special ranking (if not already qualified) will guarantee the pass to play the US Open. Guido Migliozzi (born 25 January 1997) is an Italian professional golfer. He won twice on the 2019 European Tour, the Magical Kenya Open and the Belgian Knockout.
He competed at the 2020 Summer Olympics. Migliozzi turned professional in 2016. In 2017 and 2018 he played mostly on the Challenge Tour and the Alps Tour. He had little success on the Challenge Tour but won three times on the Alps Tour, once in 2017 and twice in 2018, as well as losing the 2018 Alps de Las Castillas in a three-man playoff.
In November 2018, he finished tied for 13th place in the European Tour Q-School to earn a place on the 2019 European Tour. In March 2019 he won the Magical Kenya Open, his first win on the European Tour and in June 2019 he won the Belgian Knockout, beating Darius van Driel in the final, a result that lifted him into the top-100 of the world rankings.
