Hamburg distributes two places for US Open


The DP World Tour (former European Circuit) stops this week at the Green Eagle Golf courses in Hamburg, Germany, for the European Open, a tournament that distributes two million dollars in prizes and in which there will be about twelve of Spanish golfers: Jorge Campillo, Adri Arnaus, Rafa Cabrera, Santiago Tarrio, Ángel Hidalgo, Nacho Elvira, Sebastián García Rodríguez, Alejandro del Rey, Alfredo García Heredia and Emilio Cuartero.

US Open, qualifiers

Note that this appointment is the last of the series of four events that closes the mini-ranking on the European Tour and that qualifies for the US Open in Los Angeles, in mid-June. The two players who have accumulated the most points between the Opens in Italy, Belgium, the Netherlands and now Germany, and who are not already classified for the third ‘major’ of the season, will get their exemption. There are three Spaniards who still have options: Jorge Campillo, Santi Tarrio and Ángel Hidalgo. Mathematically, everyone has the opportunity to qualify for the US Open, although the four of them do nothing but win and wait for what two players do: Romain Langasque and Simon Forsstrom, the golfers who currently occupy those two places.

Hamburg is a city-state in Germany, formerly part of the Hanseatic League, located on the Elbe River estuary.

With about 1.85 million inhabitants, it is the second most populous city in Germany, after the capital Berlin, and it is also the most populous non-capital city in the European Union. The Port of Hamburg is one of the most important ports in the world which, together with the international airport, makes Hamburg an important global logistics centre.

From an economic point of view, the metropolis is recognized in the fields of aerospace technology, life sciences, information technology, as well as the consumer goods industry and the media. Since 1996 Hamburg has also been the seat of the International Tribunal of the Law of the Sea (TIDM).

Hamburg, in line with its Hanseatic past, still constitutes a city-state today and officially bears the title of Freie und Hansestadt Hamburg. In 201] a study by the global consultancy Mercer ranked Hamburg 19th among the 20 cities in the world with the best quality of life.
