The Nordea masters at Bro Hoff Slot is the next stop on the European Tour and this is a track that cries out for the big hitters as it has five par 5’s. It can get very windy here but the forecast is for good weather so the scoring should be low with the bombers eating up the long holes.
We looked like being in the mix last week when Tyrrell Hatton was 2nd going into the final round but he blew it, as did leader Scott Hend.
The Swede’s recent form figures are a healthy looking 8, 21, 10 and 2 while he finished 4th in this event at this track in 2013. He’s long off the tee and can get on a birdie streak which is what will be required here should the weather stay calm.

Hatton’s capitulation last week in round four can be taken in two ways. It either damages him or makes him stronger. I tend to favour the latter as he’s a young player who is improving his all round game. His driving distance, approach irons and putting numbers have all improved in 2016. He will make the breakthrough sooner rather than later.

The extra par 5’s make this week an exceptional opportunity for the big hitting Belgian to get back in the winners enclosure after showing promising form for a number of weeks now including when 3rd three weeks ago in Mauritius.
