Pforzheim – 25.07.2017.

The Sparkassen Open 2017 took place from July 6th to 8th at the Bochum Golf Club. Hinrich Arkenau opened the tournament by playing a 59 record-round, laying the foundation for his subsequent win. At the end, he won with a total of 24 under par and leading by just one hit in front of the English golfer Ben Parker.


59 hits, 5 pars, 13 under par with a total of 13 birdies – at a 72 course. Already the first round of the Sparkassen Open 2017 was to become the best round of Hinrich Arkenau's golf career so far. After Martin Kaymer, he is the second German golfer to manage a 59 round at a par 72 course. Kaymer achieved this success in 2006 at the now legendary Habsberg Classic. What's special about these record rounds: Kaymer as well as Arkenau played a KRAMSKI Putter.


Even though the tournament began quite promising for Arkenau, it still had a thrilling end. After haing played a second round of 65, he entered the final round with 20 under par and leading by six hits in front of the Dutch Dylan Boshart. He finished with 68 and only one count better than British player Ben Parker.


His win in Bochum was the third success at the Pro Golf Tour for the 27-year-old Arkenau. He had been fitted by Wiestaw Kramski back in September 2016 and ever since plays a KRAMSKI HPP 326 TP. In 2016, he had won the Kosaido Düsseldorf Open, as well as the Lotos Polish Open.
