- The Third Schüco Open, the Most Star-studded Invitational Tournament in Germany, Takes Place on 31 July at the Hubbelrath Golf Club Outside Duesseldorf
German sports fans can look forward to another extra special golf event this summer. Now firmly established, the Schüco Open will play host on 31 July 2011 to some of the world's top golfers and Schüco brand ambassadors, led by the new world number one, Martin Kaymer. The third annual staging of this prestigious invitational tournament will be at the Hubbelrath Golf Club. Situated just outside Duesseldorf, this club was chosen because, like Schüco, it promotes conservation and environmental protection - having been awarded the highest environmental certificate from the German Golf Association. The celebrated club has also hosted the German Open on several occasions.

Martin Kaymer will be joined in the field by his fellow professionals and Schüco brand ambassadors: Miguel Ángel Jiménez, Grégory Havret, Geoff Ogilvy, Henrik Stenson, Edoardo Molinari and Liang Wenchong. They will be competing with some 100 professionals and amateurs on the Sunday on the challenging championship course at the Hubbelrath Golf Club for the Schüco Open 2011 title. The inaugural Schüco Open in 2009 in Bielefeld was won by the Spaniard Miguel Ángel Jiménez. Last year, in front of more than 7000 excited spectators in Halle, Ryder Cup captain Colin Montgomerie lifted the coveted glass Winners' Cup.
