Viktor Hovland became the first Norwegian to win on the European Tour with victory at the BMW International Open.

Hovland, who looks certain to be part of Padraig Harrington's European team at the Ryder Cup, has won three times since turning professional in 2019, adding the BMW title to his victories at the Puerto Rico Open and Mayakoba Golf Classic in 2020.

“I grew up watching mostly the European Tour,” the 23-year-old said. “There’s a lot of guys who played this week who I grew up watching. It’s cool to be a champion of this tour, in Germany, in a place that… it’s not in Norway, but it’s close and has some of the same feelings of being home. It’s a huge honor and finally Norway has a win on the European Tour.”

Viktor Hovland won the Mayakoba Golf Classic in 2020.

Hovland, who was playing just his second event on European soil, is a Ping staff player with hthe majority of his bag made up of the brand's clubs. However, Hovland does use a TaylorMade SIM fairway wood and swaps between his Ping G425 hybrid and a Callaway X Forged UT driving iron.
