Day two digest: 2022 Volvo Car Scandinavian Mixed

Everything you need to know from the second day at Halmstad Golf Club.


Peter Hanson enjoyed a fitting send-off from the home fans, while his fellow Swedes Henrik Stenson and Linn Grant continued to impress on day two of the 2022 Volvo Car Scandinavian Mixed.

Here is everything you need to know from the second day at Halmstad Golf Club.

Hanson says goodbye

Making his final appearance on the DP World Tour this week before retiring from competitive golf, European Ryder Cup star and home hero Hanson was treated to a wonderful send-off on the 18th green on Friday. Having missed the cut, the second round was Hanson's last and he drank in the adulation after tapping in his final putt.

Stenson sends the home crowd wild

Tournament co-host Stenson found himself in a tricky spot after missing the green with his tee-shot at the par-three 13th. But he showed the assembled crowd exactly why he has had such a successful career with a shot from the very top drawer to secure an unlikely birdie. And his adoring fans responded with this incredible roar...

Grant's great finish

Home favourite Grant enjoyed another productive day at Halmstad Golf Club, following up Thursday's 66 with a 68 to get to ten under par. This wonderful approach into the 18th set up a closing birdie, and the crowd loved it just as much as she did...

Grant said: “When the putt went in on 18, it was so nice. You always hear yourself screaming in your head when you make a putt, but to hear everything louder and not be able to hear yourself because of everyone else - it is really nice. Just to have people that I know in the crowd was great."

Scrivener hits the front

Jason Scrivener posted the lowest round of the week so far to take over at the top of the leaderboard. The Australian made eight birdies and no bogeys in his 64 to get to 12 under and lead by two. He said: "I'm really happy. It has been a frustrating couple of months, and I felt a round like this was close and I am pretty happy with it."

Melgrati continues to shine

Italian amateur Carolina Melgrati fired a second successive round in the 60s on day two to remain in contention on ten under par, and the 19-year-old was struggling to describe how that felt. She said: "I don’t know any adjective to describe this feeling! It’s great and it’s unbelievable." Well done Carolina!
