Made in Denmark Fantasy Preview

All rejoice! We have the old European Tour website back.

That being said, we have a yardage conflict right out of the gate. When I pulled hole-by-hole for this week’s Himmerland Golf & Spa Resort early in the week (redesigned site) it showed a 7,382 yard layout. That is also what the “Lowdown” article lists on the European Tour website. However, the current site shows it as a 6,851 yard track which is what I have listed for the course last year. Although, I do have it as a 6,809 yard layout in 2015. Fun stuff. Did they really add 500+ yards since last year, did I have the wrong yardage last year, or is 7,382 yards an incorrect yardage?

If anyone has any insight on the actual yardage this week, let me know. In the meantime, I’m going to treat is as a SHORT COURSE with slow, bentgrass greens.

Now let’s have a look at some performance metrics since the start of 2015, to see who pops on this week’s setup.

  1. I don’t remember it being very long from watching it the last 2 years. I mean that one par 3 is can play less than 100 yards so…
