KLM Open

After a week off for the U.S. Open, the DP World Tour is back in the Netherlands for the KLM Open. 

Four-time DP World Tour winner Matt Wallace (14/1) returns to Europe for the first time this season. He has been playing exclusively on the PGA TOUR, where he has made nine of 14 cuts. Wallace was third here in 2019, the last time this event was played in Amsterdam. 


The last time we saw Sebastian Soderberg (16/1), he was blowing an eight-shot lead at the Volvo Car Scandinavian Mixed in his native Sweden two weeks ago. 

Tom McKibbin (16/1) is the highest finisher in this week’s field who played in the U.S. Open last week (T-41). 

Bernd Wiesberger (18/1) was runner-up to Laurie Canter (16/1) at the European Open in Germany three weeks ago. 

Following in the market are Rasmus Højgaard (18/1), Richard Mansell (25/1), Alex Fitzpatrick (33/1), and PGA TOUR regular Luke List (35/1). 

Last year’s champion, Pablo Larrazabal, is 50/1 to defend his KLM Open title. 

The Course

The International, which sits next to Amsterdam Airport, will host this event for the first time since 2019. It was opened in 2012 and designed by Ian Woosnam. At just 6,914 yards, the track is listed as a Par 71. 

The International is an exposed, undulating course with wide fairways but thicker rough in many spots and large Bentgrass greens that will roll an average speed of 12 on the stimpmeter. Water is also in play on 10 holes. This is not a pitch and putt track so strategy over power is the best way to attack this layout. 

Wind can blow here and give the players some difficulty, as it did when the International hosted the Dutch Senior Open in 2013 and 2014. Simon Brown won the 2013 event at 3-under in a weather-shortened 36-hole event. The following year, course designer Woosnam was victorious at 11-under in another weather-affected event.

The last KLM Open hosted on this track was in 2019 when Sergio Garcia shot -18 (270) on what was then a Par 72 layout.

Playoff Win over Ryan Fox – *
Playoff Win over Miguel Angel Jimenez – **


Bernd Wiesberger 18/1 DraftKings
Wiesberger is inching closer and closer to his first win in a little over three seasons. The Austrian finished runner-up three weeks ago in Germany, his best finish of the season. He leads the DP World Tour for Strokes Gained: Tee-To-Green, Scrambling, Sand Saves, and is second for Greens In Regulation, and fifth for Strokes Gained: Approach. 

Guido Migliozzi 35/1 DraftKings
Migliozzi was the 54-hole co-leader with eventual victor Laurie Canter three weeks ago in Germany but had a disastrous final round of 78, which dropped him to a T-8 finish. The Italian was also runner-up at the Volvo China Open last month. 

Johannes Veerman 45/1 BetMGM
Veerman has three Top 10 finishes in his last five starts including a runner-up at the Indian Open in late March. He ranks 5th on the DP World Tour for Greens In Regulation. This event also carries special significance for him considering that Veerman’s father is from the Netherlands.

Joost Luiten 45/1 Caesars Sportsbook
Speaking of the Netherlands, Luiten has carried the banner for his home country in the game of golf for many years and he will represent Holland next month in the Olympics. Unlike many players, Luiten tends to thrive in his home open having won it twice in 2013 and 2016. He has three Top 14 or better finishes in his last six starts, so he has been playing better golf lately. 

Adrian Otaegui 55/1 Caesars Sportsbook
Otaegui won the Volvo China Open seven weeks ago. He leads the DP World Tour for Driving Accuracy and ranks sixth for Strokes Gained: Tee-To-Green. The Spaniard was runner-up last year in this event, albeit on a different course at Bernardus, but he has made the cut all five times he has played the KLM Open.
