Malmö 8-10 August - At the last day of the Swedish Invitational Daniel Slabbert, South Africa, kept the lead from the first day and played very good golf. To make a birdie on the last hole in front of the large crowd, show that Daniel is a great player.
Johan Kammerstad, Sweden that was 4 shots behind the lead after day 1, never really came close. The Swedish Heacoach for the National team, Daniel Stark, was hopeful when Daniel made a bogey at Bokskogen signature hole nr 10, right by the clubhouse. Slabbert teeshot landed on the green, but the backspin made the ball roll back in the water, so Kammerstad came one shot closer and played well at that time.
You have to give Slabbert credit for his vey steady play, with a final score of 146 (+4) after 36 holes. Kammerstad came in second place with a 153 (+11) and Geoff Nicholas, Australia came in third at 156 (+12).
The Champions from the 4 Swedish Invitational played are:
2006 Johan Kammerstad, Sweden
2008 Manuel De Los Santos, France
2011 Stefan Mörkholt, Denmark
2013 Daniel Slabbert, South Africa
The Swedish world star Caroline Larsson took a large victory with a margin of 18 shots to Matte Wage Lynggaard from Denmark. To be the first player to win the Swedish Invitational will forever be written in the history books. Caroline played very steady golf and finished with 152 shots (+10) at Bokskogens fantastic championship course (The Old).
There are a couple of female golfers in the world that plays with a scratch handicap and we really hope to have them here at the Swedish Invitational in 2015, says Managing Director Mats Linde.
Thomas Ahlberg, Tournament Manager and Club Manager at Bokskogens GC have presented a course of the highest quality and a top organisation to run the tournament. Together with FIFH Malmö have this tournament been excellent and all players are eager to come back.
