The DP World Tour returns to Denmark this week as England's Oliver Wilson defends the title he won in such thrilling fashion at HimmerLand Golf & Spa Resort last September.
The course, nestled in the heart of Denmark's pig-farming region, is open and exposed - which could create some problems for the higher ball-strikers in a field that contains only five of the world's top 100.
Plenty of players will fancy their chances of taming the relatively short 6,646-yard track that features only two par-fives and includes the 105-yard par-three 16th, affectionately christened HimmerLand Hill by the locals.
Scandinavian trio Alexander Bjork, Thorbjorn Olesen and Nicolai Hojgaard are the three previous DPWT winners that head the ante-post betting, but the event has an open feel to it with several other contenders bringing better form figures to Farso.
|What||Made in HimmerLand|
|Where||HimmerLand Golf & Spa Resort, Farso, Denmark|
|When||Thursday 6th July - Sunday 9th July|

|Odds||Alexander Bjork 18/1, Nicolai Hojgaard 18/1, Thorbjorn Olesen 18/1, Jordan Smith 20/1, Adrian Otaegui|
Bjork is ranked fourth in strokes-gained: approach this season and ranks 15th for greens in regulation, illustrating his solid credentials.
He is also the sixth-most accurate driver on Tour so ticks plenty of boxes, as does the man who tops that particular category - Spain's Adrian Otaegui.
The four-time DPWT winner placed third at this event seven years ago and heads to Denmark in fine form, having finished second to fellow countryman Pablo Larrazabal in his last outing at the KLM Open.
A plethora of tee boxes will allow players to tinker with the distance of the holes on this undulating, relatively short track that will play as a par-70 or 71.
The course is very exposed to strong winds with a number of hilltop greens that slope significantly and there are only two par-fives - one is less than 500 yards while the other is a 645-yard monster.
Denmark's Niklas Norgaard Moller ran into form at just the right time last week as three solid rounds put him in contention at the British Masters.
However, a final round 73 dropped him to seventh place and cost him the chance to earn one of the qualification slots for The Open.
He is a former winner on the Himmerland track from back in his Nordic Golf League days and that should count for something at this event, which represents a unique challenge in many ways.
He tied for eighth place here two years back and somehow wasted a scintillating opening-round 65 to miss the cut a year ago.
The Copenhagen native actually topped out the tournament stats for strokes gained: approach during that ill-fated attempt in his homeland 12 months ago, although driving distance and not accuracy is his strong suit.
Only two players produced better final-round scores than the 68 of World number 123 Rikuya Hoshino at The Belfry last Sunday.
The Japanese player will attempt to build on the form that earned him a tie for third place at the BMW International Open at the end of last month.
His driving accuracy stats could be better, but he did compete well at an unforgiving Torrey Pines in the 2021 US Open to show what he can do when discipline off the tee is needed most.
Teeing off in Denmark less than 48 hours after securing his berth at his home course of Hoylake in a few weeks' time may not be ideal, but Jordan will no doubt be in good spirits.
The Englishman will also have fond memories of Farso after shooting 17-under to finish fourth here last year.
The Wirral golfer's liking for exposed courses can be seen from his displays at both the Qatar Masters, where he led for three days, and the Alfred Dunhill Links Championship, so this could be the week when he finally puts it all together and breaks his title duck.
