The longest running tour event in the Netherlands may not feature top 50 golfers in the field, but it has a healthy wallet and includes 148 golfers eager to win this tournament. This event did not take place last year due to COVID-19. Reigning 2019 champion Sergio Garcia won with just one stroke on a bogey at 17 and held par at 18 to get past with a one-stroke win. Since 2011, this has been a very competitive tournament with six one-stroke finishes and one playoff.

In 2019, Garcia held out a win against Nicolai Hojgaard with a consistent week of golf and battling high winds:
The betting odds favor Thomas Pieters (+1200) with Sam Horsfield and Branden Grace (+1500) also with very favorable odds via FanDuel. In 2019 Pieters (-10) finished T10 and Horsfield (-3) was not in the race at all after a very bad weekend.
Horsfield starts the day for the favorites at 8:29 am ET with Darius van Driel and Andrew Johnston. Grace tees off in a really fun group at 8:40 a.m. EST with Joost Luiten and Johannes Veerman.
Luiten is a two-time winner of the Dutch Open and could become only the eighth golfer in tournament history to win the title three times. Flory Van Donck from Belgium is the only golfer to have won the Dutch Open more than three times and his fifth title in 1953.
Pieters tees off at 1:36 p.m. ET with his first group of Graeme McDowell and Rory Sabbatini. Garcia is not defending his championship.
