The Challenge Tour moves from Denmark to Sweden for the Dormy Open, a tournament that is organized August 18-21 at Österåker’s Golf Club in Stockholm. Nine blues will participate in the event.
Among these, Lorenzo Scalise and Matteo Manassero aim to win the “card” for the DP World Tour 2023. The goal is the Rolex Challenge Tour Grand Final (November 3-6) where the 20 passes for the major circuit will be awarded to the first 20 ranked in the “money list”, but first of all it is running to get into the top 45 who will get to play everything in Spain.
At the moment, Scalise is 27/o and Manassero is 47/o.
The Challenge Tour, schedule
Stefano Mazzoli, Aron Zemmer, Jacopo Vecchi Fossa, Enrico Di Nitto, Federico Maccario, Filippo Bergamaschi and Gregorio De Leo, for their part, will try to do well and aim for a prestigious result.
In particular, De Leo (ruler of the Alps Tour with three titles and already certain to join the Challenge Tour in 2023) will be familiar with the circuit where he will play next year. Also coming to Sweden is Freddy Schott, last week’s winner of the Frederikshavn Challenge presented by HESSEL and the new leader in the order of merit.
In addition to the Germanic class of 2001, Britain’s Nathan Kimsey and Todd Clements (respectively fifth and sixth on the ‘money list’), Norwegian Kristian Krogh Johannessen (seventh), Frenchman Clement Sordet (eighth) and German Alexander Knappe (ninth).
The title will be defended by the transalpine Felix Mory, who won the second hole of the playoff last year ahead of the Swede Björn Hellgren. The prize pool will be 250,000 euros with the first coin of 40,000 euros. Stockholm, the capital of Sweden, is located on a large archipelago in the Baltic Sea and includes 14 islands and more than 50 bridges.
Gamla Stan, the old town with its cobbled streets and ocher buildings, is home to the Great Church Cathedral, the Royal Palace and the Nobel Museum, which focuses on the Nobel Prize. Between the islands it is possible to take boat trips or take a ferry.
