21 – 24 DP World Tour, ISPS Handa Championship in Spain, Infinitum (Lakes Course), Tarragona, Spain. Prize Money: $2,000,000

After several months of touring, what was once called the European Tour has finally arrived in Europe. Due to travel restrictions, two Asian tournaments scheduled for the end of April could not take place, so this ISPS Handa Spanish Championship and the following Catalonia Championship were created.

‘Best golf course in Europe’

Greg Norman created two courses at Infinitum Resort, including the one called The Lakes that we are playing this week. Despite the fact that the water from the Sequia Major comes into play in many holes, low scores are expected in Tarragona. Regardless, the golf experience must be excellent here, as Infinitum has recently been voted ‘Best Golf Venue in Europe’ several times. Players can enjoy views of the Mediterranean from almost anywhere and then relax at the Beach Club.

five dutch

A new tournament, but for many players this course is certainly not. The decisive phase of the Ranked School has already been played here several times. For example, Lars van Meijel was promoted to the highest level at Infinitum in 2019. After two seasons, the Brabander also had to take a step back, but in the ISPS Handa Championship he is one of five Dutchmen who can start alongside Joost Luiten, Wil Besseling, Darius van Driel and Daan Huizing who got married two weeks ago. . Also on the starting list: Bernd Wiesberger, the Højgaard brothers and Guido Migliozzi. Spanish contenders include Pablo Larrazábal, Nacho Elvira, Adri Arnaus and former Dutch Open (then KLM Open) winner Gonzalo Fernández-Castaño

21-24 LPGA, DIO Implant LA Open, Wilshire CC, Los Angeles. Prize Money: $1,500,000

With the famous letters of Hollywood in the background and the Walk of Fame not far away, we expect the fourth edition of the LA Open to be a complete success at the box office. It won’t be the star course and it won’t be the track, which is very popular with LPGA players. Wilshire Country Club is highly regarded, especially after Kyle Phillips, the man behind the design of Bernardus Golf in the Netherlands, renovated the park’s course a few years ago.

Weber, but not Van Dam

Last week in Hawaii we had two Dutch women in action on the LPGA and it would have been close if that had been the case in Los Angeles as well. Anne van Dam finished in third place during the Monday Qualifier. She finished her round with an eagle, but she was still one stroke away from claiming a ticket out. As a result, we have “only” Dewi Weber in the field this week. An otherwise very strong field, with six top-10 players in the world. A leading role appears to be reserved in advance for World No. 1 Jin Young Ko, who has never finished outside the top 5 here. It remains to be seen what defending champion Brooke Henderson will be like after her retirement in Hawaii, other beautiful names on the field include Minjee Lee, Danielle Kang, Atthaya Thitikul, Georgia Hall, Jennifer Kupcho and Inbee Park.

21-24 PGA Tour, New Orleans Zurich Classic, TPC Louisiana, Avondale, Louisiana. Prize Money: $8,300,000

No world ranking points will be earned this week, but that won’t stop the best players from coming to New Orleans for the Zurich Classic. Not least because of the conviviality and happy atmosphere that is always experienced in this event, in which golfers play in duets. TPC Louisiana is a track where you can score like nowhere else on the PGA Tour, so expect plenty of birdies. The format is not very difficult either: on Thursday and Saturday we play fourballs, the other two tournament days foursomes.

strong tandems

In a field with 80 teams strong, there are several pairings that really stand out. masters champion and World No. 1 Scottie Scheffler returns to join forces with fellow Texan and fellow former winner (with Jon Rahm) Ryan Palmer. Two pairs of real stars to take into account in any case are Collin Morikawa/Viktor Hovland and Patrick Cantlay/Xander Schauffele. The australians Cameron Smith and Marc Leishman proved to be a perfect match en route to their victory last year, as will no doubt be true for father Jay and son Bill Haas. Not to mention the successful Ryder Cup tandem of Henrik Stenson/Justin Rose, Sergio Garcia/Tommy Fleetwood or Billy Horschel/Sam Burns. Choose your option!

21 – 24 Ladies European Tour, Australian Women’s Classic – Bonville, Bonville Golf Resort, Bonville, Australia. Prize money: €240,000

The Ladies European Tour is in full swing and has come ‘Down Under’ after Kenya, Saudi Arabia, South Africa and Thailand. During the next few weeks they will remain in the east of the country, specifically in the state of New South Wales. Two tournaments are scheduled here that are sanctioned in conjunction with the WPGA Tour of Australasia, starting with the Australian Women’s Classic in the small town of Bonville. Proud of this city is the Bonville Golf Resort, ‘Australia’s most beautiful mainland golf course’.

The last of three Australian Women’s Classics played marked the breakthrough of a still young Steph Kyriacou. As an amateur, she surprised all the professionals, and herself, in 2020 by winning the tournament by eight shots. That year she became ‘rookie of the year’, she won the Big Green Egg Open at the Rosendaelsche last season and now she plays on the US LPGA. So it’s no wonder she’s missing in Australia this week, which also applies to Pasqualle Coffa after five weeks. in the path† Good on the field: Romy Meekers. Will she be able to make a ‘Kyriacoutje’ and take the next step in his career in this job…?

21 – 24 PGA Tour Latin America, JHSF Aberto do Brasil, Fazenda Boa Vista, Porto Feliz, Brazil. Prize Money: $175,000

The sixth tournament of the Latin American season is one with a lot of history. The Brazilian Open has been played since 1945 and the large silver cup bears the names of winners such as Gary Player, Sam Snead, Hale Irwin and Peter Alliss. It is the third time that the tournament will be played at the Fazenda Boa Vista field, about 100 kilometers from São Paulo. The winner is $31,500 on Sunday and, more importantly, 500 points for the Totalplay Cup.

That could push Rowin Caron to fourth in the rankings in one fell swoop, though his last top ranking was a while ago. However, with six events to go, now would be the perfect time to enter contention for the top 5 and promotion to the Korn Ferry Tour.
