. Surprise win at the 2018
“We have seen some fascinating golf in a fantastic setting. The
Tournament director Dominik Senn confirmed that the 2019
The European Open produced scores of stories in its 40th year – like for instance the impressive performance of the young Austrian pro Matthias Schwab over the first three rounds. It gave him the opportunity to play over the weekend alongside the Masters winner Patrick Reed and therefore in front of a big crowds. Or local hero Benedict Staben’s outstanding start when he shot a 67 to place him in the Top 10. 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.”

* Data determined in accordance with the measurement method required by law. Since 01 September 2017 certain new cars have been type approved in accordance with the Worldwide Harmonized Light Vehicles Test Procedure (WLTP), a more realistic test procedure to measure fuel consumption and CO₂ emissions. From 01 September 2018 the WLTP will replace the New European Driving Cycle (NEDC). Due to the more realistic test conditions, the fuel consumption and CO₂ emission values determined in accordance with the WLTP will, in many cases, be higher than those determined in accordance with the NEDC. This may lead to corresponding changes in vehicle taxation from 01 September 2018. You can find more information on the difference between WLTP and NEDC at www.porsche.com/wltp.
Currently, we are still obliged to provide the NEDC values, irrespective of the testing method used. The additional reporting of the WLTP values is voluntary until their obligatory use. As far as new cars, (which are type approved in accordance with the WLTP) are concerned, the NEDC values will therefore be derived from the WLTP values during the transition period. To the extent that NEDC values are given as ranges, these do not relate to a single, individual car and do not constitute part of the offer. They are intended solely as a means of comparing different types of vehicle. Extra features and accessories (attachments, tyre formats etc.) can change relevant vehicle parameters such as weight, rolling resistance and aerodynamics. Additionally, weather and traffic conditions, as well as individual handling, can affect the fuel consumption, electricity consumption, CO₂ emissions and performance values of a car.
