PGA Tour: ZOZO Championship
The PGA Tour makes another stop in Japan right at the beginning of the season for the ZOZO Championship.
The ZOZO Championship is being played in Chiba, Japan at the Accordia Golf Narashino CC at Par 72. The tournament starts on Thursday, 21st of October and ends on Sunday, 24th of October 2021.
With another strong field of participants, we can look forward to top-class golf this week. Narrowing the focus on the Scandinavian golfers, the participation is lower than usually. Only two players will represent the Scandinavians, including Alex Noren and Henrik Norlander, both from Sweden. They did not performed their best last week, but this is a new week with full chances for them to bring Sweden the glory.

|Prize Money||9,950,000 US-Dollar|
|Defending Champion||Patrick Cantlay|

European Tour: Mallorca Golf Open.
Back at it. The tournament will be played on the par 72 Golf Santa Ponsa I, designed by Folco Nardi in 1977, which has hosted European Tour events on six previous occasions. The opening round is on Thursday, 21st of October and the last day is on Sunday, 24th of October 2021. This is not only special for the players, but even the Executive board did not see the time for Golf Santa Ponsa to host an European Tour tournmanet once again. It has been 23 years since last time this course served as venue to a European Tour event, and 10 are the years since the last time Mallorca welcomed one.
The presence of our Scandinavian golfers is getting more and more noticeable, starting off with Jeff Winther from Denmark, who will tee off at 9:15am(GMT+2). Coincidence is that there will be no two Scandinavian players together playing in the same group. The audience must keep an eye in all different holes to stay tuned.
|European Tour||Mallorca Golf Open|
|Course||Golf Santa Ponsa- Mallorca, Spain|
|Prize Money||1 Mio EUR|
|Skandinavian players||Alexander Björk(SWE), Jeff Winther(DEN), Sebastian Soderberg(SWE), Søren Kjeldsen(DEN), Niklas Lemke(SWE), Marcus Kinhult(SWE), Philip Eriksson(SWE), Jens Fahrbring(SWE), Joel Sjöholm(SWE), Kristoffer Reitan(NOR), Benjamin Poke(DEN), Lucas Bjerregaard(DEN), Rikard Karlberg(SWE), Joachim Hansen(DEN)|

LPGA Tour: BMW Ladies Championship.
After a week break in the schedule, the LPGA return to the field, and they do so at the International Busan Golf Course, in South Korea, where the women will fight at the BMW Ladies Championship. Does this mean that the winner also becomes the golfer who likes to drive the most…? One thing is clear, these women drive the fairway better than most.
Matilda Castren(FIN) is kicking in strong already with a hole in one during the practice round, maybe her 6iron keeps her lucky throughout the weekend too. Castren will tee of on Thursday, 22nd of October at 8:33am(GMT+9), and Nanna Madsen(DEN) will open the first round at 9:55am(GMT+9) from hole 10.
|LPGA Tour||BMW Ladies Championship|

The tournament starts on Friday, the 22nd of October, and ends on Sunday, the 24th of October 2021. Making birdies is key for the players to have bigger chances to win. However, at the Dominion Energy Charity Classic, the outcome of playing good goes far and beyond. People can contribute to the Charity through flat donations or based on the number of “birdies” made by PGA TOUR Champions players. Robert Karlsson, from Sweden will fight every shot in representation of the Scandinavian Area, as he is the only participant from there.
