The Scandinavian Masters, currently known as the Nordea Masters for sponsorship reasons, is an annual golf tournament on the European Tour which is played in Sweden.

The tournament has its origins in the late 1960s with the Volvo Open, which became the Scandinavian Enterprise Open in 1973, when it also became the first Swedish stop on the European Tour schedule. In 1991, the SEO merged with the PLM Open, with the resultant tournament being called the Scandinavian Masters.[1]

The Scandinavian Masters is currently the only European Tour event to be held in Scandinavia, and in 2013 had a prize fund of 1.5 million, which is at the lower end of the scale for European Tour events held in the tour's home continent.

Until 2011, the tournament was played at the end of July or the beginning of August each year. For 2012, it moved to the first weekend in June, and was played from Wednesday to Saturday to allow players more time to travel to the following week's U.S. Open.[2]
