    Looking back at Hamburg's first Porsche European Open: A perfect premiere

    From the 27th to the 30th of July one of the most prestigious tournaments in the calendar of the European Tour took place at the Green Eagle Golf Course in Winsen/Luhe. For the first time the Porsche European Open took place in Hamburg. Even if the weather wasn’t too good: the event lured numerous international golf stars and a great audience into the Nord Course. That’s reason enough to hold the next edition of the tournament in Hamburg as well. From the 26th to the 29th of July 2018 Hamburg's golf elite will again enjoy the honor.

    A heartbreaking finale

    The Porsche European Open 2017 offered 14300 visitors a finale on Sunday, that couldn’t have by more thrill and excitement. As in the previous year the prestigious tournament of the European Tour was decided in a playoff and once again Alexander Lévy (France) was part of it. Yet, this time his competitor, the Englishman Jordan Smith was the lucky one. He won with a Bridie against a Par of Lévy at the second extra-hole. 

    It was the first win for the 24-year-old Bath: “I’m very happy about winning at my first season of the European Tour which is such a prestigious tournament and to see myself next to those big names” said the happy winner. All week long he had a very confident aura around himself: “Today I never had the feeling that I wouldn’t win”. 

    Highlights topping Highlights

    Responsible for the highlight of the event was Marcel Siem. The German player managed a perfect stroke at hole 17 (par 3) with his iron 7 from a distance of 156 meters. Without touching the lawn the ball directly hit the hole: Hole-in-One.  For this dream stroke he won a Porsche Panamera Turbo Sport Turismo. 

    Already before midday the US star Patrick Reed attracted attention when he scored an Albatros at hole 18, a 483 meter par 5. Reed, who dropped out in the second round in the morning, stroke from a distance of 208 meters and hit the right flag.

    Next to the spectacular strokes the audience at Nord Course experienced top golf by 74 top players who reached the cut with one (-1) under par. At the peak of the leaderboard was an outsider who proved to keep up with the stars: the Englishman Jordan Smith went into the last round taking the lead.  He played a 68-round and came with 204 strokes (-12) two strokes bevor Jens Fahrbring from Sweden and title holder Alexander Lévy from France (206/-10).
