2014: 1st Year of the Event. Runner up:
Denmark's Bjorn is ranked 24th in world. He won the Nedbank Golf Challenge in December and has six top-10 finishes this season. Bjorn also finished tied for 8th at the Masters in April.
Sweden's Broberg finished second at the Aberdeen Asset Management Scottish Open in July. He has three top-6 finishes this season, but is still in search of his first European Tour victory.
This will be the second time that the European Tour has played an event in Denmark. The only other time was the 2003 Nordic Open at Simon's Golf Club, won by Ian Poulter.
The Navison Open Golf Championship on the European Challenge Tour was played at Himmerland Golf & Spa Resort from 1994-98. Bjorn captured the title at Himmerland in 1995.
The European Tour will be in the Czech Republic next week at Albatross Golf Resort for the inaugural D+D REAL Czech Masters in Prague.
