Did you know?

Wiesberger turned professional in 2006 after a successful amateur career, during which he claimed many of Austria's top amateur titles. He progressed onto the European Tour via Q-school in 2009, but returned to the Challenge Tour the following season, where he worked at his game and acquired the winning habit with two victories.

A return to Europe's top-flight tour in 2011 was followed in 2012 by a win in a co-sanctioned event in Asia (Ballantine's Championship). Three months later Wiesberger was again celebrating, this time a home win in the Lyoness Open (effectively the Austrian Open). In 2013 he edged Ernie Els by one shot to claim the Indonesian Masters, another European Tour co-sanctioned event in Asia.

Latest golf course reviews
Koksijde Golf ter Hille Golf Club: on what was previously open farmland, an enjoyable and challenging links-style layout has been crafted. Perhaps the inspiration for Koksijde's new course came from a renowned Harry Colt layout that existed in the 1920s just a couple of kilometres to the west. Read more...
The Duke Golf Club: represents the latest in a trio of private courses to arrive on the Dutch golfing scene. All prefixed by the definite article, The Dutch (2010, designer Colin Montgomerie) and The International (2012, Ian Woosnam) have now been joined by The Duke, which firmly targets a business clientele and the corporate golf market. Read more...
Drentse Golfclub De Gelpenberg: as the oldest golf course in the Dutch province of Drenthe, De Gelpenberg offers a partly-wooded and partly-open heathland layout, guaranteed to test all facets of your game.
