Founded in 1912, the Dutch Open is one of the most prestigious events on the DP World Tour circuit. With the exception of 1913-1914 and 1940-1944, the result of disruption caused by World War I and World War II, the tournament has played in each of the proceeding years. 

The 156-man field this week is headlined by World No.36 Thomas Pieters, who enters off the back of a disappointing weekend performance at the PGA Championship. The Belgian, who finished T71, is joined by Ryan Fox as the only two who make the trip from Southern Hills to Bernardus Golf in Cromvoirt, Netherlands.

The absence of any real fire power would have you believe that the tournament doesn't quite carry the same relevance as it once did but with past champions in the likes of Seve Ballesteros, Colin Montgomerie, Payne Stewart and Bernhard Langer, any golfer would love to see their name etched alongside the greats for the remainder of time.

For the golfing amorist, Javier Ballesteros, son of three-time Dutch Open champion and one of the most iconic figures to have ever played the game, Seve, is in the field this week. 

Although Thomas is the best-ranked player in the field, there is plenty of Ryder Cup experience in the likes of Thomas Bjorn, Rafa Cabrera Bello, Victor Dubuisson, Ross Fisher, David Howell and Thorbjorn Olesen.

Bernardus Golf is a picturesque heathland course with perfectly shaped bunkers and water hazards that blend in with the background of dunes, heath and gorse. It was designed by American architect, Kyle Phillips, who was also responsible for the design of world renowned courses such as Kingsbarns, The Grove and Yas Links.

Last year, Kristoffer Broberg claimed his second DP World Title, six years on from his first, after a roller coaster final round. The Swede entered the final round with an eight shot lead but his advantage was cut in half by the time he reached the turn. Two bogeys in the early part of the back nine followed by some nervous par saves made for a dramatic finish but ultimately, he held on for a three shot victory. The 35-year-old is in the field and looking to defend this week.
