Danish golfer Andreas Harto proposes on 16th green

Powered by National Club Golfer


The Himmerland Hill, which sits behind the 16th green at the European Tour’s Made In Denmark, has space for 3,500 spectators and provides the perfect amphitheatre setting for the 128-yard par 3.

Andreas Harto stole the show on Friday, with another birdie… and a marriage proposal.

The Dane sunk a five-footer and then invited his girlfriend, Louise, onto the green. He reached into his pocket, went down on one knee and popped the question.

Thankfully she said yes. Or presumably ja.

“I'm a lucky man,. The crowd was going crazy and we loved it. I don't know how I hit that tee shot or made that putt.

“I was crying and she was crying. I know she might think I'm a bit silly but it's going to be a great memory for us as we grow older.”

Not surprisingly he bogeyed the next hole, and missed the cut by five.

At the same spot home favourite Soren Kjeldsen was greeted by ‘500’ banners to celebrate his reaching that number in European Tour appearances (it was actually his 501st).

“I’ve never been as emotional on a golf course as that,” said Kjeldsen who made a birdie from two feet and went on to tie for second.

“It was incredible to feel the warmth from the people who all wanted me to do well. You can’t really describe it.

“I didn’t realise they were going to do anything like that, but they made it the best day I’ve ever had on a golf course.”
