Kapur, Jeev tee up at KLM Open

Jeev-Milkha-Singh_6

Kennemer :Shiv Kapur and Jeev Milkha Singh return to the European Tour after a week’s break as they prepare to tee off at the KLM Open, Holland’s national championship.

Jeev is hoping to strike back form after being off-colour in recent weeks, while Kapur is also fighting to save his card for next season.

Two-time Major champion Martin Kaymer will be a part a star-studded field and legend Tom Watson will make his first appearance in the event.

The 66-year-old five-time Open champion is making a rare appearance on European soil, and hoping to prosper from the links-style layout of Kennemer Golf and Country Club in Zandvoort.

The coastal venue has welcomed a host of other world-class players like European Ryder Cup captain Darren Clarke, three-time Major winner Padraig Harrington and evergreen Spaniard Miguel Angel Jimenez also in the line-up.

Dutchman Joost Luiten will hope to send the home fans wild again, two years after he triumphed here, beating Jimenez in a play-off, while Englishman Jamie Donaldson returns from injury hoping to add to his three European Tour victories.

The KLM Open is one of only seven tournaments to have been played every season since The European Tour started in 1972.
