Bernd Wiesberger

Wiesberger-Bernd
Wiesberger made up for lost time in 2019, enjoying a superb season after a seven-month lay-off with a wrist injury in 2018 saw him drop to 389th in the world, when he had been as high as 23rd in 2015.

Wiesberger made up for lost time in 2019, enjoying a superb season after a seven-month lay-off with a wrist injury in 2018 saw him drop to 389th in the world, when he had been as high as 23rd in 2015.

After a one-stroke victory over Robert MacIntyre at the Made in Denmark tournament he earned himself a return to The Open with a joint runner-up finish at the Irish Open, where three Royal Portrush places were on offer as part of The Open Qualifying Series.

He then added the ASI Scottish Open after a three-hole play-off with Benjamin Hebert, having scored a Renaissance course record 61 in the second round.

His climb back up the rankings did not end there. With yet more success at the Italian Open he moved to a career-high 21st and headed the European Tour’s Race to Dubai until the final week saw him slip to third.

Wiesberger’s first two victories came in 2012, a five-stroke success at the Ballantine’s Championship in South Korea being followed by a three-shot win on home Austrian turf at the Lyoness Open.

He added the 2015 French Open and then won the Shenzhen International in 2017 after a play-off with Tommy Fleetwood. He also triumphed on the Asian Tour at the 2013 Indonesian Masters and in May he returned to Denmark to defend his 2019 title and won again by five.
