All-in-all, the German players put on a good show over the four days – seven made the cut, more than ever before.
The best story was however written by the amateur Allen John from Ludwigshafen am Rhein. The 30-year old, who plays for the St. Leon-Rot Golf Club’s men’s team in the top German league competition, last year won the gold medal in golf at the Deaflympics in Samsun, Turkey. And now he has shown that he can compete with the European Tour’s elite in his foray onto the top European professional circuit. The former Ryder Cup winner Peter Hanson (Sweden) was particularly impressed by the huge length of the German’s drives: “It’s something I’ve never seen before in professional golf, and I’ve seen them all. Allen simply takes out various obstacles that are alone an optical challenge for every other pro.”
