The Cyprus Open is a professional golf tournament to be held 29 October – 1 November 2020 at the Aphrodite Hills Resort, in Paphos, Cyprus.
The tournament is intended to be a one-off event and is the first of back-to-back Cyprus based events on the European Tour calendar during the 2020 season. It will be the first time that the European Tour has hosted an event in Cyprus.
Callum Shinkwin defeated Kalle Samooja in a play-off to win his first European Tour title after a dramatic final day at the 2020 Aphrodite Hills Cyprus Open.
The Englishman was two shots behind the Finn as he stood on the17th tee in regulation and while a birdie there edged him closer, his chances of victory looked slim when he found rough off the tee at the par five last.
His second shot over the water took him to the edge of the putting surface and he holed an incredible 54-foot putt for eagle to take a one shot lead at 20 under par after a closing course-record 63.
Samooja left himself an eagle chance from almost exactly the same spot but a two-putt birdie meant it was extra holes at Aphrodite Hills Resort.
