The European Tour travels to Gothenburg for the Scandinavian Invitation. Before placing a bet, check out the form stats supplied by Andy Swales...

"The Englishman (Matthew Fitzpatrick) has played pretty solidly since mid-June and on his most recent outing tied-for-fourth at the WGC St Jude Invitational in Tennessee."

The European Tour is off to Sweden for this week's Scandinavian Invitation at Hills Golf & Sports Club, a few miles south of Gothenburg city centre.

Opened in 2005, the course will be one of the shorter layouts - certainly in terms of yardage - the pros will tackle all year.

Well-wooded and with a fair quantity of water, the rolling fairways of Hills rests close to Sandsjobacka Nature Reserve.

In 2014, former world top-50 pro Johan Edfors reshaped six of its 18 holes in readiness for its European Tour debut four years later.

Tree-lined, parkland and undulating, the players will face plenty of changes in elevation as they try to navigate their way around this tricky venue.

Headline Act

Sweden's Henrik Stenson is the biggest name teeing-up this Thursday, and arrives on the back of some improved form in recent months.

The world No. 34 has posted three top-10s in his most recent five starts and is the second highest ranked golfer in the field behind Matthew Fitzpatrick.

The Englishman has played pretty solidly since mid-June and on his most recent outing tied-for-fourth at the WGC St Jude Invitational in Tennessee.

A five-time winner on the European Tour, the world No 30 from Sheffield secured the second of these titles by winning at another Swedish venue (in Stockholm) three years ago.

In Form

Among those with good current form are Andrea Pavan and Erik Van Rooyen, both of whom posted top-10 finishes in the Czech Republic on Sunday.

Pavan is at a career high No. 77 in the World Ranking, having won in Germany back in June. He carded a closing 65 to tie-third in Prague over the weekend.

Van Rooyen, meanwhile, tied-fifth in the D+D Real Czech Masters, his fifth top-10 of 2019.

Elsewhere, you may be tempted by former Italian Open champion Rikard Karlberg, now a lowly 665 in the world.

The Swede was another fifth-place finisher in the Czech Republic, which followed back-to-back top-10s on the Challenge Tour.

Bit of a long shot I admit, but considering this week's mediocre field at Hills, the 32-year-old son of Gothenburg might be worth an each-way punt.

Karlberg is taking part thanks to the Tour's medical extension exemption rule.
