Scandinavian Mixed Predictions
The DP World Tour moves from Germany to Sweden this week for the second edition of the Scandinavian Mixed.
This innovative event features golfers from both the men’s tour and the Ladies European Tour and is hosted by two local major-winning legends, Henrik Stenson and Annika Sorenstam.
The inaugural Scandinavian Mixed was staged at Vallda Golf & Country Club but this year the tournament moves to Halmstad Golf Club.
Followers of women’s golf may recall that the course hosted the 2007 Solheim Cup.
It’s situated around 90 miles from Gothenburg and is set in dense woodland. As well as wide tree-lined fairways, it has numerous doglegs and a fair amount of water.
In fact, it’s not far from the sea either so the course can get breezy.
Obviously, there are ladies tees in use as well and that’s supposed to be a great leveler for the 78 women taking part in the 156-strong field.
But did it play out last time?
In the first running, Jonathan Caldwell shot a closing 64 to finish at 17-under and beat Adrian Otaegui by a shot.
Alice Hewson was the leading female, finishing third, although men occupied 15 of the top 17 spots on the leaderboard so there wasn’t the balance the organizers had hoped for.
Can it be different this year? The betting suggests not.
Alex Noren is the clear favorite to take the victory while only one LET player, Maja Stark, is quoted lower than +3500.
Stark finished tied 18th in the event last year.
Back Bjork for the Win
Local man Alexander Bjork enjoyed this event last year, finishing with a 66 to end the week in a tie for seventh.
That was also the position he occupied in the Dutch Open two weeks ago.
Bjork’s short game was superb in that event as he finished the tournament ranked 1st for Strokes Gained: Putting and second for SG: Around The Green.
He wasn’t as sharp in those two departments at the European Open last week but this time his irons were on point as he picked up 6.160 strokes for SG: Approach.
A closing 69 ensured another good finish.
Bjork has connected top 25s in his last three events and looks on the brink of putting it all together and challenging heavily for the title.
He’s made a vow to be more relaxed on the course and that’s showing in his results.
This should be a good week to let his game flow and he’s the tip for victory at +2000 with Caesars Sportsbook.
Stark Can Outscore Grant
We landed the 72-hole match bet again last week after backing Danish star Rasmus Hojgaard to beat Robert MacIntyre.
The bet was sealed after just 36 holes when MacIntyre missed the cut.
This time I’m going to focus on a women’s match up and back Maja Stark to beat Linn Grant.
Stark has been an instant hit since turning pro and already has three wins to her name on the LET after victories in the Creekhouse Ladies Open, the Estrella Damm Ladies Open and the Women’s NSW Open.
The latter came at the beginning of May and it was achieved by a victory margin of five shots.
In addition, she made the top 20 in this event 12 months ago and was runner-up earlier this year in the Asian Mixed Stableford so clearly excels in these mixed events.
She currently sits top of the LET’s Race to Costa Del Sol rankings
Fellow Swede Grant has strong credentials too and performed well in last year’s event.
But Stark has the better Greens In Regulation numbers and superior putting stats and can edge out her rival. Back Stark to win this 72-hole match bet at -115 with DraftKings Sportsbook.
Take Stenson for a Top 10
Henrik Stenson is the co-host this week but he has the temperament and experience to play well in the tournament too.
Winning might be a stretch but on a short course where his accuracy counts for plenty, he’s very capable of easing his way into the top 10.
Europe’s next Ryder Cup skipper was tied 18th at the Texas Open just before the US Masters and tied 34th in a much better field than this at the European Open last week was a decent effort.
He’s made the top five in three of his last six starts on home Swedish soil and never finished worse than tied 33rd in that run.
We’ve seen in the past how Ryder Cup captains can play surprisingly well when it’s presumed their attention is elsewhere and +300 for a top 10 here is worth a play.
