This year, the European golf tour presents a completely new tournament – Scandinavian Mixed, where female and male golfers play against each other in Scandinavia’s largest golf tournament. Formerly known as the Nordea Masters, this competition sees future hall of fame golfers Henrik Stenson and Annika Sorenstam as the two hosts.
The competition kicks off on Thursday 10th June through Sunday 13th June. Vitamin Well will be present throughout the tournament with signs along the fairway, well-stocked refrigerators on selected tee boxes and of course plenty of thirst quenchers in the players’ lounges.
– The sport of golf is in Vitamin Well’s DNA. Scandinavian Mixed is a unique and exciting competition that we obviously want to be a part of. Seeing both male and female golfers compete against each other for the same trophy and prize money is fantastic, says Petter Ericson Hållén.
From Vitamin Well’s team, Joakim Lagergren and Camilla Lennart will be competing, as well as Oskar Zetterwall who will caddy for Camilla. Oskar recently joined the Vitamin Well team as a Golf Sales Expert. He currently works nationwide with Vitamin Wells products in the golf sales category while he prepares for the European Q school this autumn.
Play well. Drink well.
