Pedersen raring to go at Scandinavian Mixed

Race to Costa del Sol champion kicks off her 2021 LET season in Sweden

The 2020 Race to Costa del Sol champion Emily Kristine Pedersen begins her 2021 LET season this week at the Scandinavian Mixed. Pedersen comes into the tournament having played at last week’s US Women’s Open where she finished T23.

“I’m feeling good. I’m glad to be in Scandinavia, the tournament is three hours from my house and it’s really nice. I got here yesterday after flying from San Francisco, but I’m really happy to be here,” said Pedersen.
The Danish star had always targeted the Scandinavian Mixed to be the tournament to kick off her 2021 season. Pedersen romped to the Race to Costa del Sol last year winning five trophies and four individual titles at the back end of the season.
“I’m super excited, I really wanted to come back to this event and to come back and defend the Race to Costa del Sol,” she said.
“It’s such a good sponsor for the LET and I’m glad to support it and hopefully I can defend it this year.”
With all the Ladies European Tour (LET) and European Tour players competing on the same stage for the same trophy and the same prize fund, Pedersen hopes the profile of the women’s game will rise through the event.
She said: “It’s always fun to play against the boys. It’s good to be back doing it and it’s going to be exciting with how the course is set up. It’s great that women and men are playing together and it’s going to be really interesting to play in the same field. Hopefully, it will especially raise the women’s game a bit and I hope that it’s going to be a success and there’s going to be maybe a few more in the future.”
