2013 Nordea Masters Preview: Leaderboard

THE EUROPEAN TOUR heads to Sweden this week for the 23rd staging of the Nordea Masters at the unusually named Bro Hof Slott Golf Course.

Trying to discover the origin of the name I got lost somewhere in the Middle Ages but all we really need to know is that the course is rated in the world top 100, has a renovated castle as a central clubhouse and it has, of course, hot tubs.

This event has been staged at this venue since 2010 and local Swedish golfers and former winners Alexander Noren and Peter Hanson are among the favourites.

Another contender is Italy’s Matteo Manassero who is competing here for the first time and arrives off the back of his heroic play-off win last week when the 20 year old became the youngest ever to take the flagship BMW PGA Championship at the Wentworth golf club.

Australians in the field include Daniel Gaunt, who won the Telenet Trophy on the European Challenge Tour on the weekend, Andrew Dodt, Richard Green and Scott Arnold.
