Henrik Stenson will be keen to emerge victorious at the Scandinavian Mixed which he co-hosts with Annika Sorenstam. 
 
The Swedish star is the first male Swedish and first male Nordic major champion, having won the 2016 Open Championship at Royal Troon in Scotland.
 
Stenson has also won prestigious tournaments such as The Players Championship and WGC-Accenture Match Play Championship. 
 
The two-time European PGA Tour Golfer of the Year spent over 300 weeks ranked in the top ten of the Official World Golf Ranking and he is currently ranked 145.
 
Stenson won the US PGA Tour's FedEx Cup and the European Tour's Race to Dubai in 2013 thus becoming the first player to win both and to win the season finales of both tours.
 
The 45-year-old's last win on the European Tour was in 2016 when he clinched the BMW Championship as he beat Darren Fichardt and Thorbjørn Olesen to the title.
 
Stenson is an 11-time European Tour winner having won the DP World Tour Championship and Dubai and BMW International Open twice each.

The Gothenburg-born golfer is looking forward to competing in the Scandinavian Mixed with golf legend Sorenstam. 
 
“It’s going to be a great week and I’m sure a real thrill for all of the players in the field to have someone of Annika’s stature playing in the tournament," Stenson said.
 
"I can’t wait to see the dynamics of having both men and women going head-to-head for the same trophy and putting it all on the line come Sunday afternoon."
 
Lee Westwood and Colin Montgomerie are the most decorated players in the history of the Scandinavian Masters having won three titles each.
