Fantasy Golf Tournament Preview- Scandinavian Invitation- (European Tour Package)

OVERVIEW

The event formerly known as the Nordea Masters is now called the Scandinavian Invitation. This will be the 2nd year The Hills has hosted the event, so we have a very small sample of golf to pull from as far as history goes, but at least we have something. The course is a mix of pretty much everything – marshland to forest ridge. The fairways are wide and easy to hit with huge undulations which should result in some long drives, even for the shorter hitters (Fitzpatrick). The course features four par 3’s ranging around 190-200 yards (two of them back-to-back on holes 5 & 6 which could put an end to birdie streaks if the players aren’t careful), and three par 5’s ranging from 540-610 yards. The Par 5, 8th hole is a dogleg right, uphill and is the longest of the three, so this should be the only three shot Par 5 on the course for everyone. The Par 4’s don’t appear to be too tricky outside of keeping your tee shot in play, the longest is 476 yards and the shortest is 388 giving the players a mix of holes where par is a good score on about four of them, and par would be a bad score on three. There appears to be trouble everywhere, so we could see some higher scores this week. The course demands a strong approach game (weird) and brought Thomas Aiken back to life last year so don’t be surprised if you see someone who has had a down year, but has been an excellent ball striker their entire career jump up the leaderboard.
