Fantasy Golf Picks for the 2018 Nordea Masters

THE OVERVIEW

Hills Golf Club, Molndal, Sweden - We don't have much for an introduction this week. The course is new, but the event is old. The Scandinavian Masters has been around for a while with Scandinavian players winning 5 of the last 10 tourneys.

The course this week will play as a 7,167-yard, par 71. It features wide, tree-lined fairways, a bunch of strategically-placed bunkers, and a fair amount of water in play.

This week we'll be using almost exclusively current form (with a heavy Scandinavian slant) in making our picks.
