The Titleist Tour Support Vehicle has brought us to the outskirts of Stockholm this week as players prepare for the Nordea Masters. The spectacular Bro Hoff Slott Golf Club plays host again, offering a firm test of golf set against one of the more beautiful stops on the European Tour.

Designed by Robert Trent Jones Jr., the course, which opened in 2007, stretches out from a clubhouse that is actually a converted castle which dates back to 1888. The holes are well guarded by bunkers, thick rough and a great deal of water, which comes into play on 12 of the 18 holes (some holes on the back 9 even approach the fjords). This week the course will play to a par of 72 over a demanding 7,607 yards.

At the time of this writing, Titleist Brand Ambassador Matteo Manassero is picking up right where he left off last week, following the biggest win of his career at the BMW PGA Championship. The 20-year-old is the early clubhouse leader after firing a 6-under 66 in the opening round.

Also securing prominent positions near the top of the leaderboard are fellow Titleist Brand Ambassadors Chris Lloyd and Ricardo Santos, as well as Pro V1 loyalists Jamie Donaldson and Joost Luiten and Pro V1x loyalist Fredrik Andersson Hed. All of these players find themselves within two shots of the early mark set by Matteo.

If you have a chance to view any of the action this weekend, be sure to see how players fare at the signature, TPC-Sawgrass-inspired 17th hole. Like the famous 17th at The Players Championship, the 17th at Bro Hoff Slott Golf Club features an island green. At 150 yards in length, this hole may be the shortest on the golf course, but for any player protecting a lead on Sunday, a par at the 17th will be accompanied by a great sigh of relief.
