After a exceptionally wet tournament the year before, this year’s edition of the VZM Dutch Aviation Open Golf Tournament was on a splendid day with sunshine and a very nice temperature. The weather certainly helped for the match players to score much higher points than the year before: the average was up more than 4 points!
The first time participants were also boosting the score, with three out of four ending in the top ten. One of them, Grégory Jamet of Transavia France, declared he played reasonably, but to his own surprise was the 2011 winner of the Hans Minnee Challenge Trophy.
Tjapko van Wijk who had produced the straightest drive in the Nearest to the Centerline competition went home with the F16 model. The winner of the clinic competition was one of the three somewhat better experienced golfers, Marc Wittingen, leaving the experienced clinicer Leo Staats with the consolation price.
