Open 2015 players: Europe

There is a vast amount of talent in European  golf,  however there are some specific players who should be looked out for at the Open.

People such as Sergio Garcia, Bernd Wiesberger and Henrik Stenson are all outstanding form.

Sergio Garcia, who is currently ranked 10th in the world standings, has produced some amazing statistics on his Major tournaments record since 2001 with eight top 10 finishes in the Open Championship in the past 14 years including a 2nd place finish last year.

This year Garcia has started off reasonably well with two top 20 placements in Majors, and looks to be on good form for the tournament next week.

Stenson also has an impressive record in the Open with three top 5 finishes (2008, 2010 and 2013), placing 2nd in the 2013 event.

Another player to look forward to seeing is Martin Kaymer who is currently the 18th  in the World rankings. In the 2010 Open Championship he achieved his best finish of 7th and went on the next year to get a top 15 placement.
