The Finnish Tour season kicked off in May 14-16 at Nordcenter Golf & Country Club in Raasepori.
The SGA players started the final preparations for the season a week earlier at Nordcenter where the tournament course Fream was in excellent shape despite difficult weather conditions of the past winter.
The winter’s technical training inside combined with diligent preparation play in Spain and at Nordcenter produced good results as seven of SGA’s fourteen players participating in the event made the cut. This meant that 17 per cent of players in the final round were from the SGA Academy.
Especially noteworthy was the performance of the young amateur Carl Hellat who ranked third in the final results. Also SGA’s recently turned pros Casper Simberg and Rasmus Karlsson did well finishing 10th and 11 th.
