The DP World Tour returns to Europe with the KLM Open in The Netherlands attracting a quality field including a number of PGA Championship challengers.
Gritty Polish star Adrian Meronk has had his foot on thee till for a long time and has found an event that will suit his game nicely. The KLM Open projects to be a scoring feast with strong putting and an ability to find birdies central. Meronk leads the DP World Tour in Birdies and ranks 5th in Putting Average. He comes in playing red-hot golf with three Top 6 finishes in his last four starts.
South African Hennie Du Plessis has been a strokes gained darling this season and looks a nice proposition this week. Du Plessis ranks 3rd in Birdies, 10th in Strokes Gained: Tee To Green and 11th in Putting Average. His form has been sublime with four Top 15 finishes in his last five starts.
Englishman Marcus Armitage is not the most consistent player but at his best is a top-shelf type. He ranks Top 17 in both Birdies and Strokes Gained: Tee To Green. Two Top 21 finishes in his last three starts so his form is reasonable enough.
Veteran James Morrison has not won in seven years but can have a big tournament here. His form is nothing to write home about but it is on an upward tick with two cuts made in his last three tournaments. Morrison ranks Top 10 in both Putting Average and Strokes Gained: Putting.
