Any specific comments - the rough is not as penal as in previous years due to very dry weather before the event

Changes to the course - sine the last time the KLM Open was played at Kennemer Golf & Country Club in 2009 the following course changes have been implemented:

- fairway bunker to the left of the tenth fairway has been moved further up the hole so that is more in play
