Golf legend Jack Nicklaus was intended to be the honorary guest of the first edition of the Soudal Open but unfortunately, he informed the organisers that he can no longer attend for personal reasons.
Nicklaus said: “Due to unforeseen circumstances, I will regrettably not be able to attend the Soudal Open. I remain, of course, supportive of this wonderful event and the further development of golf in Belgium.”
The organisers obviously regret the cancelation of Jack Nicklaus’ attendance but have numerous alternate activities for the golfing spectators. With the participation of star players at the Soudal Open (such as Pieters, Detry, Colsaerts, Wiesberger, Cabrera Bello…), there will be autograph sessions and “Meet & Greet” planned over the 4 days of the tournament.
