With less than six weeks to the Nordic Golf League season start, the ECCO Tour Winter Series is approaching a full field.

Again this year, flows a highly competent group of big golf names to the season’s first major golf test. From Denmark is among other Challenge Tour players Mark Haastrup, Rasmus Hjelm, Anders Schmidt Hansen and last year’s ECCO Tour star, Lucas Bjerregaard, on the entry list.

Of Swedish and Norwegian profiles seem Joachim Rask, Benny Ahlenbäck, Elias Bertheussen, Peter Kaensche and one of the winners from the Winter Series 2012, Christian Aronsen as the greatest threats. But as it always is with season starts, a high number of new talents are ready to bit in as dark horses.

Tough international competition
The top names must fight against a rarely seen international field of participants from around 15 different countries. Distant destinations like the U.S. and Israel are represented, while strong golfing nations such as England, Italy and Spain will try to bite spoons with a number of established and talented golf names from Scandinavia.
