Welcome to Swedish Challenge hosted by Robert Karlsson and Katrineholms GK!

I am so happy to see that we, together with the Swedish golf federation, has been successful in bringing the Challenge Tour back to Sweden. It feels like it has been a hole that needed to be filled to be able to keep the ladder out to the big tours complete. Now we have done it in Katrineholm.

This week we will have the next generation of great players playing here at our home club, it will be very interesting to see how these young superstars will tackle our course. We have for the last few years had the top Nordic players here but this is a step up. I hope you all in the crowd will appreciate these guys and how much effort they are putting in to get through their careers.

A would like to extend a huge Thank You! on behalf of all the players to our sponsors. Without them we would not have an event. During the week the players are the stars, but it is very easy to forget that the sponsors and partners are at least as important as the players. Without you we would not have an event at all. So again thank you!

Also a big thank you to Katrineholms Golf Club who let us use their course for a week, we know how much effort is put in to hosting an event like this. A special thank you to all volunteers who give of their time for this event to work as smoothly as possible.

A warm welcome to spectators and fans. Let the games begin!
