KLM Open 2014 finals

Review winner

Paul Casey has become the winner of the KLM Open 2014. The Englishman played a fantastic tournament, equaling the course record (62) in the third round. The former world number three finished one stroke ahead of Simon Dyson.

Home favourite Joost Luiten took fifth place. The 2013 champion played an exciting tournament. He was leading the field after day 1, made a quadruple bogey on day 3, but got back in contention. Luiten just missed out on a second victory, but he gave his fans plenty to cheer for.

Robert-Jan Derksen said good bye to the Dutch home crowd in style. In his twentieth and final KLM Open, Derksen managed to record his best result, finishing eleventh. On his final hole Derksen received a standing ovation. A fitting tribute to a great player and a wonderful career.

About the KLM Open

The KLM Open is part of the European Tour, Europe’s foremost professional golf circuit. The tournament was played on Dutch soil for the 95th time in 2014. In recent years prize money has risen to EUR 1.8 million, with the winner receiving EUR 300,000. Attracting 50,000 spectators, it is one of the best-attended tournaments on the European Tour.

For the eleven years in a row KLM has been the event’s lead sponsor. Together with partners Deloitte and ABN AMRO, KLM has elevated the KLM Open to an even higher plan in recent years. The tournament is among the most progressive professional sporting events in terms of the spectator experience, business relations/marketing, the use of new media and eco-friendliness. In 2012 the KLM Open was awarded the title of ‘most sustainable golf event in Europe’ for the second time.

The KLM Open will be held at the Kennemer Golf & Country Club in Zandvoort again in 2015. Paul Casey is the reigning champion.

Volunteers 

Each year there is huge interest by golfers and non-golfers to help as a volunteer at the KLM Open. The number of applications outnumbers the available places. In 2014 an incredible 1400 volunteers played their part in the succes of the event.

Without the help of so many sports enthousiasts it would not be possible to organize a large scale event like the KLM Open. We thank all volunteers for their dedication and hope to see them back next year.
