Thomas Bjorn won his first-ever Euro tour title 19 years ago at the Himmerland Golf & Spa Resort, and returns as one of the tournament’s marquee names beginning Thursday.
It’s the first time in more than a decade that Denmark has hosted a top-tier tournament, and will give Bjorn a chance to qualify for the upcoming Ryder Cup tournament.
While the PGA Tour is in its last regular-season event this week, the European Tour has another 11 events before the Race to Dubai kicks off in late October.
Himmerland is the largest golf and spa report in Northern Europe, quite a feat considering Denmark itself is smaller than 41 of the 50 states in the US.
Bjorn tees off at 8:10 a.m. alongside Scotland’s Marc Warren and Germany’s Nicolas Colsaerts.
The course is a par-71, 7,033-yarder with two monstrous par-5s on the back nine of 644 and 628 yards, respectively.
