I’m not ready to say that the Bernd Wiesberger train has come to a halt, but it’s begun to slow down.
The Austrian was destroying every course in his path, collecting a win and three top-10s all while accumulating 28 straight made cuts dating back to 2016.
Hell must’ve frozen over, though, because Wiesberger has cooled down with two weekends off coming into this week.
While the three weeks off heading into last week’s event didn’t render a paycheck, I expect him to recapture his groove this week.
Wiesberger made a run at the KLM Open title last year from the fourth-to-last group on Sunday, but his six-under 65 was topped by Joost Luiten’s 63. Wiesberger settled for second.
The 31-year-old isn’t a phenomenal putter, but he’s got the ballstriking and short game to hang around if playing conditions are as tough as expected.
