Men and women will compete against one another for the same prize money and the same trophy in a groundbreaking new event in Sweden. On Monday, Annika Sorenstam and Henrik Stenson announced the debut of the Scandanavian Mixed to be played in June 2020.

While men and women have played together in various formats, increasingly in recent years, the Scanadanavian Mixed is the first event of its kind. The tournament is co-sanctioned by the European and Ladies’ European tours and will feature 78 men and 78 women competing for a €1.5 million ($1.65 million) purse. And it’s not just the money — players can also earn Official World Ranking points for both tours, plus Race to Dubai and Ryder Cup points for European Tour members and Order of Merit points for the Ladies European Tour.

The Scandanavian Mixed will take place at Bro Hof Slott Golf Club in Stockholm, Sweden from June 11-14, 2020. Sorenstam and Stenson, Sweden’s two most accomplished golfers, will serve as tournament hosts. Stenson himself has committed to play in the first three editions of the event.
