Peter Hanson has had much of his time occupied recently with preparations for The Ryder Cup, but he was pleasantly surprised to make an encouraging start today in the first round of the KLM Open.
He managed to get around the course carding five birdies and just one bogey in a very impressive 66 that put him one shot off the early lead at Hilversumsche GC.
Hanson has won four European Tour events in his career and although claiming his fifth would be nice, his main aim this week is ensuring his game is ready for Medinah in 21 day’s time.
The Swede has been devoting plenty of hours to practice leading-up to his second Ryder Cup appearance, and explained: ”You try not to think too much about the result this week”
Not long to go now, 21 days and counting!
