He said: (pre Kings Cup) “It’s definitely a great way to start the week having won the par-three contest. I hit some really nice shots out there despite the strong winds.
Rikard Karlberg tweeted a pic of his new home on the course here but it's compatriot and friend Edfors who has a real affinity with Black Mountain GC. Edfors had spent more time in his on course Villa than in Sweden over the last few years. Winner of the Black Mountain Masters in 2009 (-17), Edfors also has an under the radar win in the 2013 pro-am Black Mountain Invitational here (67-70-69). As per the quote above, he won the par three contest here before the Asian Tour's Kings Cup at the start of 2014 in which he finished 17th. Only a disastrous 77 in round 3 in high winds scuppered his chances of another victory. Back in the winners circle at the ShangKai Classic late in 2014.
