DID YOU KNOW – AUSTRIAN GOLF OPEN PRESENTED BY BOTARIN
• By shooting 60 on the final day to record his maiden European Tour title in 2009, Rafael Cabrera-Bello became just the third player in European Tour history to fire this number and win. He follows Ian Woosnam (1990 Monte Carlo Open) and Jamie Spence (1992 European Masters).
• By recording 18 straight pars in the final day in 2008, Jeev Milkha Singh claimed the title and became just the second golfer to win a European Tour event after compiling 18 par figures in the last round. The Indian follows Sir Nick Faldo who achieved the feat in the 1987 Open Championship at Muirfield, to claim the first of his six Major Championships.
• Austrian Martin Wiegele will attempt to claim his second European Tour title of 2010, following the SAINT-OMER OPEN presented by Neuflize OBC. Should he be successful he would become the first Austrian golfer to win twice in the same European Tour season. Having already won in his native Austria in 2010 on the European Challenge Tour at the Karnten Golf Open by Markus Brier Foundation, he is looking to become the first player to win a regular European Tour and Challenge Tour event in the same country in the same season.
• German amateur Max Kramer, made European Tour history in the 2006 tournament by becoming the first amateur to record an albatross. He achieved the feat at Fontana’s ninth hole in round one, using a six iron from 180 yards.
