However, Suneson is not scheduled to defend his title. That being said, there will be three past winners playing this week -- Nicolas Vanhootegem (2002), Joakim Backstrom (2005) and Cesar Monasterio (2006).
This is the sixth straight year this event will be contested opposite the U.S. Open. It will again be a dual-ranking event with players from the European Tour and the Challenge Tour filling out the field.
There is no television coverage for the tournament. The European Tour shifts to Germany next week for the BMW International Open, where Niclas Fasth won last year.
