About the KLM Open

The KLM Open is part of the European Tour, Europe’s foremost professional golf circuit. The tournament will be played on Dutch soil for the 95th time in 2014. In recent years the prize purse 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 eleventh year in a row KLM is the event’s lead sponsor. Together with partners Deloitte and ABN AMRO, KLM has elevated the KLM Open to an even higher plane 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 2014 will be held at the Kennemer Golf & Country Club in Zandvoort. Joost Luiten is the reigning champion.

Format

The tournament consists of 72 holes played over four days. The professionals play 18 holes a day. The game format is stroke play, during which each stroke played by each player is counted. The player who has played the fewest strokes at the end of four rounds wins the tournament. After two days of play, the players with the 70 lowest scores progress to the third and fourth rounds. This elimination process is called the cut.

In the event of a tie for first place, the championship will be decided by a sudden-death play-off immediately following the fourth round. The first player to take fewer strokes than his opponent(s) to hole his ball wins the tournament.
