It is not often a golf competition stops pending. But then the fall of Österlens Golfklubb's track Djupadal after three days of games in the PGA Championship hosted by Ingelsta Kalkon. Even the three hole specialties could distinguish the players in the lead and when a thunderbolt pulled in over southeastern Skåne, the competition management decided to share the profit between Christian Bach Christiansen from Denmark and Gudmunder Kristjansen from Iceland.
Shared victory for the first time
Both players finished nine holes under par and when it came time for special play on the 18 hole, Christiansen and Kristjansen showed class. The audience was invited to both fantastic rashes, unparalleled recordings and long birdie pits. During the fourth special hole, the lightning storm broke loose over Vik and the competition broke. The victory was shared, which never happened before during the Swedish Golf Tour. However, it has happened once before during a golf instructor championship where Krister Kinell and Österlens Golfklub's instructor Gunnar Mueller shared the victory. Charlie Lindh finished third in the PGA Championship hosted by Ingelsta Turkey, a blow behind the victory duo.
XNUMBER players passed the cuts
Over 150 players came to the start of the competition, which is part of the Swedish Golf Tour. 61 of these passed the cut and got to play the third round. The prize money for the competition was a total of 425 000. Österlen's contribution to the competition Philip Lindström, Tomelilla GK and William Wistrand, Österlens GK, both missed a good competition but missed the cutt this time.
