Good news from the tour director of Nordea Masters, just a few days after the last putt was made on Sunday. Next year the tournament has a new date - the week before the US Open, 6th - 9th of June - and two major winners in the field! Fredrik Hellkvist, the tournaments director announced today, that Rory McIlroy and Darren Clarke will be playing Nordea Masters 2012 at Bro Hof Slott!
Apparently the contract with McIlroy was made before his epic win of the US Open, which made him quite a bargain.
The Tournament will be played Wednesday to Saturday to allow players to fly to the US on Sunday for the US Open. The advantage is, that the first day of play is also Swedens National Holiday. The plan is to organize a big festival around the first round on Wednesday with live music and other entertainment.
I would say, save the date, plan a trip to Stockholm and visit the Nordea Master 2012.
