The European Tour makes its annual stop in Sweden this week for the Nordea Masters at PGA National in Malmo.

Last year, home favourite Henrik Stenson was unable delight the galleries as he bogeyed the final hole when a eagle would have given him the title.

Instead, Victor Dubuisson, Stephen Gallacher and eventual winner Thongchai Jaidee battled it out in a play-off.

Stenson is once again the top-ranked player in the field and will be looking to make the most of the home advantage.

It’s no surprise to see the world number three a 9/2 favourite with most bookmakers.


Jaidee is 20/1 to retain his title while Gallacher is at 40/1 and the out-of-form Dubuisson has given the event a miss.

England’s Eddie Pepperell just missed out in a play-off at The Irish Open and has been knocking on the door for his first European Tour win.


The 24-year-old finished in a tie for 6th last year so could be worth a look. Some bookies are offering 40/1 while others are a little more concerned, pricing him up at 28/1.

Fellow Englishman David Howell was also in the top 10 in 2014 and has been in good form this year despite not landing a win.

Howell, a two-time Ryder Cup player, can be can be backed at 40/1.

Another Ryder Cup player, Robert Karlsson will also have passionate support from his home fans and came close last year, finishing just three shots off the lead.


It’s been a while since Karlsson was last in the winner’s circle and he has struggled to threaten the leaderboard in recent months. That’s reflected in the odds with some pricing the big Swede at 66/1.

Spain’s Rafa Cabrera-Bello is another player due a win and showed signs of getting back to his best with a tied 4th finish at Royal County Down last week.


The 32-year-old was in the top 10 at PGA National last year so know his way around the Malmo track.

Odds of 40/1 look like decent value.

For even more value, check out Belgium’s Thomas Pieters who just missed out on the top 10 last year but can be backed at 125/1 with some bookmakers.
