First played in.....
1912 George Pannell England Haagsche 158 by 1 stroke from Charles Warren.

The 100th edition of the KLM Open will be played in 'The International' designed by Ian Woosnam on the grounds of Schiphol Airport near Amsterdam in 2019. KLM will have existed for 100 years next year, so it brings 100 years Dutch Open and 100 years KLM together.

Other notable winners in the earlier years were Henry Burrows (3), Aubrey Boomer (3), Bobby Locke, Cecil Denny (twice & runner up 3 times) and Sewsunker 'Papwa' Sewgolum (3) (1959, 1960 and 1964) - A South African Golfing 'Lost' Legend and a symbol of SA Apartheid sports boycott movement - he died a pauper in 1978, aged only 48.

Standing on the wrong side of the ball...

Of course, many golfers who play left-handed are, in fact, right-handed. That is true of the group's guiding light, Bob Charles, who captured the 1963 British Open, and Masters champion, Phil Mickelson. And as an interesting aside, the game's finest ball striker, Ben Hogan, was actually a left-handed person who played golf right-handed.

The process of observation has produced some fascinating developments. For instance, Mickelson was only 18-months-old when he started swinging in a mirror-image of his right-handed father. And when Charles first stood to a ball at the age of five, he reflected the action of his golfing parents.

A much more mature Lee Trevino, however, reacted quite differently to seeing how it should be done. Recalling his early years as a professional, Trevino said: "I used to hit the ball like everybody else. I stood close to it, was square to the line, took the club inside and hit high hooks. But I wasn't a very consistent player.
"Then I saw Hogan hitting balls at Shady Oaks in about 1963. I saw him fading the ball. I had no idea how he was hitting the ball left to right and I damn sure didn't have the nerve to ask. When I came back to the driving range, I started pointing my left foot to the left and it gave me an open position. Then I just started holding on, holding on. It would come out there to the left and dip to the right. All of a sudden I was hitting a fade."

Meanwhile, there were right-handed golfers who chose to have their dominant hand at the top of the shaft - by adopting the hurling, or cross-handed grip.
Sewsunker Sewgolum is generally acknowledged as the only right-handed golfer to have achieved international success while playing the game with his left hand below the right. Born in Durban, South Africa, he won the Dutch Open in 1959, 1960 and 1964, but being of Indian descent, appearances in his native country were restricted because of apartheid.
Sewgolum's admirable achievements, however, tended to overshadow a similarly remarkable exponent of the cross-handed method - from the other side of the world.

Charlie Owens, a black man now 74 and living in retirement in Tampa, Florida, won three times in the US, twice as a senior.
"I was shooting par before anybody said my grip was wrong," recalled the player, who had seven operations on his left ankle and right knee as a result of an accident while serving as a paratrooper with the US army. Yet he insisted: "When I sit down and look back over my career, I was able to rise above healthy people, despite my physical handicaps and playing with an improper grip."
Having made it to the USPGA Tour in 1970 at the age of 40, he won an unofficial tournament, the Kemper Asheville Open, a year later. Then, as a senior, he captured the Treasure Coast Classic and the Senior Tour Roundup, both in 1986. He retired in 1998.

Given the huge influence of hurling and the individuality of Irish golfers, it seems odd that nobody here has risen to Owens's standard, using a cross-handed method. It is even more baffling that Ireland has yet to produce a left-handed tournament professional.
One can only conclude that potential candidates feared being stigmatised as oddballs. The Irish attitude was perhaps typified by the country's lone British Open champion, Fred Daly, who, when approached for lessons by left-handers, was often heard to remark: "I don't teach deformed golfers."

Papwa Sewgolum was an excellent self-taught golfer, with no formal schooling. He is famous for his reversed, cross-handed grip (called the “Sewsunker” grip even today). But he is possibly most famous for beating Gary Player and winning the 1965 Natal Open.

CHINAMAN Ashun WU birdied the 18th to secure a one-stroke victory over Englishman Chris Wood at the KLM Open. OWGR #344 WU watched his weagle wputt on the winal whole slide just past the hole before tapping in for birdie and 16-under par.
33yo WU's third career title on the European Tour (2015 China Open and 2016 Lyoness Open) after his season's best T6 at last week's European Masters. A 7-under-par opening round set the tone for the week - his first R1 lead of his European Tour career and lowest lap on day one. He's led three Japanese Tour events after 18 holes but didn't win any.

Overnight leader WOOD needed a birdie on the last to force a playoff, but could only manage a par five to finish second at 15 under. This was his sixth solo 54-hole lead, four on the European Tour and one in Asia; he has claimed two wins. A two-time runner-up this season, he was seeking a first ET win since the 2016 BMW PGA Championship.

Belgian Thomas Detry finished tied for third with Hideto Tanihara. Devil
