Porsche European Open, a way for US Open

The Porsche European Open as a last chance to qualify for the US Open. Up for grabs in Germany where, from 2 to 5 June, in the DP World Tour tournament, seven blues will be competing: Guido Migliozzi (fresh from the first top 10 of 2022 in the Netherlands, at the Dutch Open), Francesco Laporta, Renato Paratore, Nino Bertasio, Lorenzo Gagli, Andrea Pavan and Edoardo Molinari.

Second in 2021, Dodo Molinari in Hamburg will find Henrik Stenson (captain of the Europe team at the Ryder Cup 2023) who, in a press conference at the Marco Simone Golf & Country Club in Rome, appointed him as the second vice-captain of the continental team.

Immediately an opportunity for Molinari and Stenson to meet and study closely the best players on the circuit.

At Green Eagle Golf Courses, the opportunity is also tempting for Italians. In a tournament that appears bewitched.

Not only Edoardo Molinari: in this event Paratore (in 2018) and Costantino Rocca (in 1994 and 1996) also finished second. The Englishman Marcus Armitage will defend the title. With him, among the past winners, also compatriots Richard McEvoy (2018) and Jordan Smith (2017).

Field of level in Germany, where another Briton, Tommy Fleetwood, and the German Martin Kaymer (former number 1 in the world, who hasn't won a tournament since 2014, however) stand out among the big names. The Porsche European Open is the last of four events, after the British Masters, Soudal Open and Dutch Open, which will allow the top ten of a special ranking to take the pass to play the US Open (June 16-19, Brookline, USA) , third major of 2022.

The prize pool is 1,750,000 euros. Henrik Olof Stenson (born 5 April 1976 in Gothenburg) is a Swedish golfer, part of the PGA Tour and the Nationwide Tour. In 2016, the year in which he also won the Olympic silver medal in Rio de Janeiro behind Justin Rose, Stenson won the Open Championship played at the Royal Troon Golf Club, becoming the first Swede to lift the Claret Jug: thanks to a final round extraordinary, embellished with ten birdies and finished in 63, had the better of a rival of great value, the American Phil Mickelson, over whom he prevailed with a three-stroke advantage.

The final score of 264 (68, 65, 68 and 63) was 20 under the par of the Royal Troon (the score of 4 laps cannot be compared with the Par of a course).
