After its debut on The European Tour International Schedule in 2009, the Czech Open returns in 2010 and once again it will be played at the Prosper Golf Resort in Celadná in the Czech Republic.
The man who lived up to the venue’s name and prospered the most last season was Sweden’s Oskar Henningsson who claimed his first European Tour title in style, coming from five shots off the lead at the halfway stage to take the title by three shots thanks to matching weekend rounds of 67-67.
In triumphing, Henningsson added his own numbers to golf’s record books; becoming not only the 31st player to graduate from the Qualifying School and post a win the following season, but also only the third player behind Gordon Brand Jnr and José Maria Olazábal to triumph the season after winning the Final Stage itself which he did at PGA Golf Catalunya in November 2008.
Going into the final round in a share of sixth spot, three shots adrift of leader Steve Webster, Henningsson knew he had to make a fast start and did just that when he reached the turn in 32. From there, further birdies at the 13th and 16th saw him win comfortably.
