In the Swing

At this year’s Inteco Russian Open Golf Championship, held July 24-27 in Moscow, everyone was speaking Swedish. Leading the pack at the halfway point, former Ryder Cup player Jarmo Sandelin and 2005 Russian Open winner Mikael Lundberg continued Sweden’s dominance of the tournament after last year’s win by fellow Swede Per-Ulrik Johansson. As the tournament continued, Sandelin lost pace, ultimately finishing 23rd. Lundberg, however, kept everyone on their toes, and in the end took home the trophy for the second time after finishing 21 under par to edge out last year’s winner Jose Manuel Lara of Spain by two shots. “This is my absolute favorite place. Everything is great here,” Lundberg said of the Moscow tournament, which is held annually at Le Meridien Moscow Country Club. This year’s competition saw over 150 players vying for the €210,237 grand prize.
