Soudal Open: How to watch, TV channel, course details and more

It is two weeks since the last regular DP World Tour tournament in China, and the circuit holds its first gathering in Europe of 2024 this week with the Soudal Open at the Rinkven International in Antwerp, Belgium.

Sweden’s Simon Forsstrom defends the title he won by beating fellow countryman Jens Danstrop by a shot 12 months ago.

How to watch the Soudal Open and TV channel

The Soudal Open will be televised on Sky Sports Golf in the UK and Ireland.

Soudal Open dates and times

The Soudal Open will start at 06:00 on Thursday 23rd May with play taking place over four days and the winner being crowned on Sunday 26th May.

Soudal Open course details and venue

The Soudal Open will be held at the Rinkven International, which first hosted the Belgian Knockout in 2018, a tournament that contained both stroke play and match play elements.

After two such tournaments a 72-hole gathering was established in 2022 on a course that is notoriously tight. Six of the par-fours measure less than 400 yards so accuracy is key.

Soudal Open stats and past winners

None of the 17 European Tour events held in Belgium have been won by a home player.

Thomas Pieters heads the home challenge after three successive top-20 finishes on the breakaway LIV Tour.

Adrian Otaegui, who won the Belgian Knockout here in 2018, won the last DP World Tour event in China and 2019 Knockout champion Guido Migliozzi was second on that occasion.

Otaegui leads the DP World Tour driving accuracy stats, which could prove of great importance on a narrow layout.

Sweden’s Simon Forsstrom won last year and the first 72-hole strokeplay version was won by Sam Horsfield the previous year.

Lee Slattery, who is in the field this week, also won a Challenge Tour event at the Antwerp venue in 2010.

Soudal Open this year’s notable players

Otaegui leads an open market following his China success and could prove hard to beat, although Pieters should be buoyed by some decent LIV results.

Jordan Smith finished strongly to end up 39th at last week’s US PGA Championship, while Germany’s Yannik Paul will be confident after finishing runner-up two years ago.

Dutchman Joost Luiten, an accurate sort with three recent top-20 finishes, could also enter the equation.
