The European Open in Germany, of the DP World Tour, concluded with the victory of Englishman Laurie Canter, and David Puig's option to be an Olympian in Paris is still valid. Given that none of the immediate pursuers have been able to score enough points in the European spring, despite the victories of Adrián Otaegui and Nacho Elvira, the Barcelona native remains second in Spain by a few hundredths.

Jorge Campillo has not progressed on the PGA Tour either, so he will join the aforementioned duo in the Volvo Scandinavian from next Thursday, the last real appointment to be able to capture the second Spanish ticket to the Games and thus accompany Jon Rahm in the Golf National.

If he does not achieve a place in the top ten, in the case of Otaegui, or something better for the luck of Elvira and Campillo, the place will remain in the hands of the golfer who plays the LIV. Puig, in addition, will burn this Monday his last chance to enter the US Open, the big one that lowers the ranking blinds.

The Fireballs golfer has signed up for the Lake Merced qualification of the third major of the course and his presence in Pinehurst would give him options to continue increasing as Eugenio López Chacarra will have, even though the Madrid native will need a place in the top two of the US Open to enter the Games.

The European Open in Hamburg also produced seventh place for Rafa Cabrera, with 284 strokes, five behind the champion. The same place he achieved at the Fortinet Championship in November in Australia, his best result in more than a year.

The 2024 Summer Olympics, officially known as the Games of the XXXIII Olympiad, will be held from July 26 to August 11, 2024, in Paris, France. The city was officially designated during the 131st IOC Session in Lima, Peru, on September 13, 2017.

Hamburg, Rome, and Budapest were also contenders until their withdrawal on November 29, 2015, October 11, 2016, and February 22, 2017, respectively. Additionally, Los Angeles was simultaneously selected to host the 2028 Olympic Games, as per the agreement reached with the IOC on July 31, 2017.

Following London (1908, 1948, and 2012), Paris becomes the second city to host the Summer Olympics for the third time, one hundred years apart (1900, 1924, and 2024), before Los Angeles (1932, 1984, and 2028). The event returns to its traditional four-year Olympic cycle after the 2020 Tokyo Olympics, which took place in 2021 due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
