The 29-year-old Swede has very little major championship experience, but he’s been really playing well on the Euro Tour lately. He got his first win this year at the Volvo China Open, and he’s made eight of his last nine cuts. He’s been in the top 20 in each of his past three events, including decent fields at the Scottish and Irish Opens. During that span, he’s absolutely nailed greens and fairways. That is a recipe for weekend golf.
