More than 25,000 visitors came to follow the first Porsche European Open on the Beckenbauer Golf Course at Quellness- und Golfressort Bad Griesbach. No wonder Tournament Director Dominik Senn (4sports & entertainment AG) was pleased with the outcome: “We were very happy how this initial event rolled out, as it is never easy to stage a successful tournament in such a short time.” At the same time, Senn announced that the Porsche European Open would be further extended for the second staging from 22-25 September at Golfressort Bad Griesbach.
This mainly refers to the players field, which is to include even more stars – particularly from Germany. Senn: “Last year, we experienced the huge excitement Bernhard Langer triggered and thus we want the German top players to hit their t-shots in Bad Griesbach.” And right now, it looks as if this enterprise is going to succeed.
Accordingly, Martin Kaymer (from Mettmann), double Major-Tournament winner and most successful German player in the past years, will celebrate his first appearance in Bad Griesbach this September. After being unable to attend the Porsche European Open in 2015 due to his tournament schedule, he integrated the event into his schedule this time. “I'm looking forward to it working out this year and will play in front of a home audience at the Porsche European Open.” And without promising too much, there is no doubt that golf enthusiasts will be presented with a real highlight at this season finale.
