Top Contenders

NOTES: The European Tour travels to Denmark this week for the inaugural Made in Denmark at Himmerland Golf & Spa Resort in Aalborg. Two of the top 25 players on the Race to Dubai are in the field - Thomas Bjorn (4) and Kristoffer Broberg (24).

Denmark's Bjorn is ranked 24th in world. He won the Nedbank Golf Challenge in December and has six top-10 finishes this season. Bjorn also finished tied for 8th at the Masters in April.

Sweden's Broberg finished second at the Aberdeen Asset Management Scottish Open in July. He has three top-6 finishes this season, but is still in search of his first European Tour victory.

This will be the second time that the European Tour has played an event in Denmark. The only other time was the 2003 Nordic Open at Simon's Golf Club, won by Ian Poulter.

The Navison Open Golf Championship on the European Challenge Tour was played at Himmerland Golf & Spa Resort from 1994-98. Bjorn captured the title at Himmerland in 1995.

The European Tour will be in the Czech Republic next week at Albatross Golf Resort for the inaugural D+D REAL Czech Masters in Prague.
