The DP World Tour moves to Hamburg in Germany for the Porsche European Open at Green Eagle.

Victor Perez produced a putting masterclass to secure a dramatic Dutch Open victory last week, and the Frenchman will be keen to build on that momentum with back-to-back wins. However, while Perez’s putting game was key in the Netherlands, the Hamburg course is one of the longest in Europe, at 7,603 yards. 

The course also has an unusual layout with four par fives on the back nine and a total of five, including the monster 705-yard 16th. Therefore, big-hitters are likely to prosper. It’s not all about distance, though. Seventeen of the holes feature water, while bunkers guard many of the greens, meaning precision and technique are also important on a course regarded as the toughest in Germany.

Last year, Marcus Armitage earned the first prize of €200,000 with his maiden European Tour title. The popular Englishman beat compatriot Matthew Southgate by two shots and both men will be battling it out again this year. It’s another Englishman who much of the focus will be on, though. Tommy Fleetwood is the highest-ranked player in the field, at World No.41. He has shown glimpses of his best this year, including tying for the lead after the first round of The Players Championship and finishing tied for fifth in the PGA Championship at Southern Hills.

Armitage’s victory in 2021 continued a trend of English winners, extending that run to four after Paul Casey, Richard McEvoy and Jordan Smith claimed the title in the preceding years. Of those, only Casey is absent in 2022. Will Fleetwood be the man to continue that run this year? Whoever does win will earn a higher first prize than last year thanks to an increased purse - €1,750,000, which is identical to the Dutch Open. That means the winner will earn €291,660, while the runner-up will settle for €194,440.
