Will a German golfer be able to win the European Open?

The North Course at Green Eagle Golf Courses is the longest, measuring a monstrous 7,882 yards. It is regarded as one of the toughest on the DP World Tour. It also features remarkable 5-par fives that are more than 600 yards in distance. In the past five editions of the tournament held here, the German golfers had to settle for a runner-up finish, and this year, the German golfers would be hoping to win. The last time a German golfer won the European Open was Bernhard Langer in 1995.

Jannik De Bruyn currently leads a strong German group hoping to excite the home crowds, with a two-way tie at T2 after the second round. Along with him, DP World Tour winners Nick Bachem, Marcel Siem, and Maximilian Kieffer are among the 12 German players competing in the European Open. To end the drought that has been going on for 29 years, Bruyn is the only viable hope right now, but Paul Yannik, with 2 under on the scorecard, could also excel to the top if he shoots several birdies.
