Lyoness Open Golf 2017 Live Stream Online: Venue: Diamond Country Club, Atzenbrugg, Vienna, Austria Date: June 8-11 Course stats: par 72, 7,417 yards Purse: €1,000,000 Defending Champion: Ashun Wu (Chn)
Bernhard Langer won the first edition of the Lyoness Open (formally the Austrian Open) in 1990 but after just seven editions the tournament was relegated to the Challenge Tour. The event was flagging and it wasn’t even played in 2000 but then along came Austrian golfing legend, Markus Brier, whose popularity revitalised the tournament.
Chris Wood – The Englishman has won on this course before and will be hoping to pick up a second title. He will be looking to bounce back strongly from a disappointing finish to his campaign in last week’s Nordea Masters, where he bogeyed the final hole to miss a playoff by a shot.
Benjamin Hebert – The Frenchman has been on solid form in recent events and had a chance in Sweden last week but faded to a tie for eighth with a last round of 75. He should feel confident that he is playing well though.
Joost Luiten – Another past winner of this event, Joost has been playing steadily this year and is currently 39th on the Race to Dubai standings.
