World stars at the Porsche Urban Golf ChallengeHamburg. Top golf in the heart of St. Pauli: The Porsche European Open got off to an atmospheric start on yesterday Tuesday evening with the Porsche Urban Golf Challenge on the Spielbubenplatz square. In the line-up were the top stars Patrick Reed, Pat Perez, Bryson DeChambeau (all USA), Jordan Smith (England), Charl Schwartzel (South Africa) as well as the German hope, Alexander Knappe. A course with three themes was specially built for them on the so-called “Kiez”: The “Hamburger Dom” representing the biggest festival in the north, “Street Art”, in allusion to Hamburg’s famous artistic scene and “Hamburger Hafen” (Hamburg Port). From a tee platform, the pros had to hit a variety of targets and win points. The start was marked by a tin can shooting and then they had to hit a shipping container and a boat as well as a shopping trolley and a trash can. The most accurate in a competition the pros also found to be rather unusual was Pat Perez (USA). As a reward he can now travel around during the tournament week in his very own Porsche 911 GTS. His conclusion: "An extraordinary event for us too. The atmosphere here was simply fantastic. We had a lot of fun together. And now I'm looking forward to driving a Porsche."
