This week European Tour Weekly is in Cologne for the BMW International Open. Martin Kaymer will be returning home as the newly crowned US Open champion and he will head a strong field that also includes World Number Two Henrik Stenson. ETW will be on the range at Golf Club Gut Larchenhof with the latest news and views from the players.
Since it first appeared on the schedule in 1989 the BMW International Open has been one of the most prestigious weeks on the calendar. ETW takes a trip down memory lane and enjoys highlights from the last 25 years of this popular event.
Our review comes from Cork in Ireland, where Europe’s top players have assembled for The Irish Open. ETW will bring you the best of the action from Fota Island Resort.
Matthew Fitzpatrick, the 2013 US Amateur Champion, briefly led the US Open at Pinehurst outshining his playing partners Rory McIlroy and Phil Mickelson, before becoming the first amateur since Bobby Jones in 1930 to hold the low amateur honours at both the Open Championship and the US Open. The 19 year old from Sheffield made his professional debut in Ireland and ETW met the young man from whom great things are expected.
Together with all of the latest news and statistics from the Tour, this completes another edition of European Tour Weekly.
