The BMW International Open 2017 Preview

Our golf scribe previews this week's European Tour event, the BMW International Open.


I have been one of those that has jumped on the anti-European Tour bandwagon of late in regards to the porosity of their fields. But considering the fact that the world’s attention has just turned away from Erin Hills and the US Open, the organisers have managed to attract the best field in the tournament’s history this week. Current Masters champion Sergio Garcia will join current Open Champion Henrik Stenson in an illustrious field. Fellow major alumni’s Martin Kaymer and Ernie Els lend further gravitas to proceedings, while the likes of Cabrera-Bello, Wiesberger and Fleetwood give this event some real credibility.

The Lyoness Open 2017 Preview

Our golf scribe runs the rule over this week's PGA Tour event, the Lyoness Open.


With Erin Hills approaching next week, it is fairly understandable that yet another weakened field will grace the European Tour this week. Perhaps home favourite and former champion Bernd Wiesberger would prefer to be setting his sights on next week’s US Open, but it seems that he realises the importance of his presence for the veracity of the event.

Finally, an event that the European Tour can be proud of. After weeks of trying to feign interest in Sicilian reinterpretations and GolfSixes, European tour aficionados will finally be treated to something approaching a fully-fledged event. The absence of Rory McIlroy due to injury and Sergio’s desire to play in America have dampened moods somewhat, but the likes of Rose and Stenson lead an impressive field at a newly renovated and jazzed up Wentworth. Harry Colt’s old course had become a parody of its former self in recent times, and the likes of Ernie Els and co have gone through significant pains to make the course the standard bearer that it used to be on tour.  
Chris Wood’s victory last season was marred by calls for a complete course rejuvenation.
