It’s time for the longest test on the DP World Tour, as the monstrous Green Eagle hosts the European Open in Hamburg, Germany.

The North Course will welcome an elite DP World Tour field for the second event in the European Swing, which marks 41 years of this tournament.

Tournament visitors will have access to the best seat in the house at almost 40 metres high on the famous European Open Ferris wheel.

The ride will be directly behind the 18th green and offer the all-important views across holes 13 to 16.

Whether from the sky or on the ground, fans will have their eyes on Masters champion Danny Willett, who makes his first start after returning at Augusta.

Meanwhile, players will be keen to bring their best golf to the 17th hole, as car partners Porsche have a spectacular hole-in-one prize up for grabs.

Founded in 1978, the European Open was originally played across England. Between 1995 and 2007, it was held at the K Club in Ireland before moving again.

And since 2015, it’s called Germany home. So, here’s everything you need to know…

The bunkered bet

Bernd Wiesberger 25/1

It’s never easy picking a winner from a wide open field on a monstrous test. But Wiesberger has been solid from tee to green all year and his long game will be crucial when the emphasis is on mitigating mistakes. If the Austrian gets his putter working, he can contend at Green Eagle.
