2011 Swedish Champion: Markus Källström
Haninge, Sweden - It was a tight battle from start to finish at this weekend’s Swedish Open. Markus Källström was tied after two rounds, and three back after three rounds. Then he uncorked a 1070-rated fourth round, giving him a two-shot lead heading into the finals. Markus held on to the lead to claim the Open title by a single stroke. Skål!
Kallstrom now holds both the Swiss and Swedish Championship trophies for 2011. His 2011 resume also includes second place at the Copenhagen Open.
