PGA of Denmark Announce Unique Danish PGA Championship1 min read


Posted on: 5th Jun 2020

CPG Member Country, the PGA of Denmark, have announced a new and incredibly unique golf tournament for the end of this month.

The ‘Jyske Bank – Danish PGA Championship‘ is to be held at Himmerland Golf, forming a new 3-day event as part of the Ecco Tour, and will feature a huge mix of entrants from a variety of tours and sources.

The field includes invitations to 8 Danish European Tour players, including Ryder Cup players (and 2018 captain) Thorbjorn Oleson and Thomas Bjorn, alongside other key names such as Lucas Bjerregard and Soren Kjeldsen.

But diversity will be at the heart of the field, as invitations have ensured to include players from across the sport. This includes two LPGA Tour players, 10 Challenge Tour players, 6 Ecco Tour players, and then further wildcard picks for various stakeholders including the PGA of Denmark (2), the Danish Golf Federation (2), Himmerland Golf (1), Ecco Tour (1), Made in Denmark (1) and Danish Legends (3).

All in all, this will bring 36 of the best Danish golfers together into one place for an event like no other, and compete as one for a single prize fund (300.000 D.KR.).

Extraordinary times have called for extraordinary measures, but this event further demonstrates the ingenuity of CPG Member Country PGAs to provide new, exciting initiatives, programmes and events to the world and to the industry, in safe, socially-distanced manner.

For example, there will be no caddies, no spectators (although the event is televised at Viasat Golf), and various other social distancing measures in and around the tournament will be enforced during the week.

These measures are the sign of the times, but golf must continue and the PGA of Denmark are truly leading the way in doing so…
