The Belgian Open, the second stop of the 2023 European Pro Tour, kicked off today under the warm Belgian sun in Parc du Bourdon with Anneli Tõugjas-Männiste and Otto Mäkinen in the lead after day one. The narrow wooded fairways provided plenty of challenges for the players and the Birdie Blueprint tips by our commentators proved to be worthwhile to follow. The players especially showcased their putting skills, delivering some awesome highlight putts with Anneli Tõugjas-Männiste sinking in a long one on hole 5 and Kristian Kuoksa also making some great putts. With the players now in top form for the competition, stay tuned on moving day to see who will emerge as the frontrunners.
