Don’t Be Sleeping on Henna

Henna Blomroos is having a sneaky good season. Her 2nd place finish at last weekend’s 2024 Swedish Open was her fourth podium in a row at DGPT or PDGA Major events. She is knocking on the door of a win just weeks before the PDGA Major, the European Open. 

Henna led the field in Fairway Hits, C1 and C2 Hits in Regulation, and Strokes Gained Tee to Green at a staggering 23.6 strokes. Henna’s -7 in the 2nd round was the hot round of the weekend by two strokes. As usual, she is driving like the best player in the world. Once it comes together on the putting green, Henna will be back in the winners’ circle. 


Eveliina Salonen #1 in the World

Eveliina Salonen just jumped past her teammate Ohn Scoggins into the top spot of the 2024 DGPT World Standings. She tied for 5th place in Sweden, her eighth top 5 of the season. Eveliina was 2nd in the field in C2 Hits in Regulation, Scramble rate, and Strokes Gained Tee to Green. Eveliina already has one Major victory under her belt this year. She’ll be a favorite to take another at the upcoming European Open.

Augustsson’s Putter Catches Fire 

Dennis Augustsson had his best finish at a DGPT Elite event last weekend by 45 places! He tied for 5th, leading the field in multiple key putting statistics. Dennis was 1st in Strokes Gained C1x, Strokes Gained Putting, longest average putt length, and total putting distance. He went 33/34 from inside the circle. 

In the second round, Dennis shot a smoking, 1069-rated, -10 that tied the best round of the event. He went 5 for 8 from C2 and 11 for 11 inside the circle. Dennis proved that his ceiling is extremely high – if he can string together three rounds like his 2nd round in Sweden, Dennis Augustsson will win on Tour.
