After an early exit in last week's Fiji International, Austin Connelly will try his luck at the Made In Denmark.

Connelly's long journey to Fiji looked to be paying off when he hit 5-under after two thirds of his second round. But a weekend challenge turned into a weekend off as he suffered an astonishing collapse, playing his last six holes in 8-over to miss the cut by a shot. Still, it's all very a learning curve for the young Canadian and we saw his potential in The Open at Royal Birkdale (T14). This will be his first start at Himmerland Golf Resort & Spa but it's worth noting that Connelly played in the Challenge Tour's Made In Denmark in late June and closed with a 67 for tied 22nd. He could be a risk worth taking this week.

Marcel Siem admitted he was "really upset" after losing to Adrian Otaegui in the final of the Paul Lawrie Match Play last Sunday; he'll get back on the horse at this week's Made In Denmark.

The German was 3-up at the turn and 2-up with five holes to play but suffered a 2&1 loss to his fast-finishing opponent. "I'm really upset, it's disappointing, it was right there on a silver plate for me today. There's nothing better than having a tournament win under your belt, having an exemption. I would have had a chance to play in every tournament," Siem lamented later. Still, it's gone now and he'll try to buckle down at Himmerland Golf Resort & Spa where he'll be playing this event for the first time. The four-time European Tour winner has also posted top 10s this season at May's Rocco Forte Open and June's Nordea Masters so his run to the PL Match Play final didn't come out of the blue. Siem sits 87th on the Race to Dubai from 19 events.

David Drysdale is 3-for-3 in the Made In Denmark and he returns to Himmerland Golf & Spa Resort this week to try and keep that record going.

The Scot posted T15 in the inaugural edition of the tournament in 2014 but hasn't quite hit those heights in the last two years, finishing T44 each time. Drysdale has never finished better than 48th (2009) on the Race to Dubai in his lengthy career but he's actually 47th on this year's list. That's thanks mainly to a T4 finish at the Irish Open last month although he's surrounded that with some other good performances of late - T16 in the Open de France and T27 at The Open at Royal Birkdale. He suffered a first-round exit in the Paul Lawrie Match Play last week but should enjoy this return to strokeplay on a course he gets on well with.

Zander Lombard had mixed fortunes on his Made In Denmark debut last year; he returns to Himmerland Golf Resort & Spa for another crack this week.

The young South African started brightly with a 69 on his first look at the course 12 months ago but then crashed to a second-round 80 and missed the cut. At least he's shown he can do it for 18 holes at this venue and he should still have plenty of confidence from a top-five finish at the European Open in Germany last month. That ended a run of six events without a top 40 although prior to that he'd finished runner-up at the Rocco Forte Open in Italy. He's certainly not the most consistent type but those good results on mainland Europe bode well at least.

Alexander Knappe continued his upturn in form with a run to the last eight of the Paul Lawrie Match Play last week and he'll look for another strong performance in the Made in Denmark.

The rookie's quarter-final appearance last week followed T12 in the European Open and T26 at the Scottish Open, those results following a serious dip featuring eight straight missed cuts. There's a couple of other factors in the German's favor this week. Himmerland Golf & Spa Resort has rewarded hot putters in its three editions so far and Knappe has finished fourth and ninth in Putting Average on his last two strokeplay starts. He played all four rounds in this event in 2015 (T67) and, notably, took part in the Challenge Tour's Made In Denmark last year and posted third spot after opening with a 65.

Scott Jamieson is 3-for-3 in the Made In Denmark at Himmerland Golf Resort & Spa but will hope to get higher on the leaderboard this time.

The Scot has had to settle for T45, T44 and T57 in his three previous appearances and shot just two rounds in the 60s. However, there was a glimpse of something better last year when he opened with 65 to lie T5 after day one before he undid the good work with a Friday 78. Jamieson has had a frustrating last couple of months with three missed cuts, a DQ and a first-round exit in the Paul Lawrie Match Play but he did post T14 in last July's Irish Open. Earlier this season he also reeled off a run of five top 25s in seven starts from March to early June, highlighted by a third place in the Indian Open.

Patrick Reed came from just off the pace to win last year's NORTHERN TRUST, and he returns this week for a chance to defend his title, this time at a new venue.

Reed was leading by two at the midpoint last year but found himself one off the pace after 54 holes, as Rickie Fowler passed him by. Reed fired out of the gate in R4 with birdies in three of his opening seven holes. That allowed him to coast to the finish line despite a pair of late bogeys. Last year's victory came at Bethpage Black but this year the hosting duties have shifted to Glen Oaks Club, just down the road. Reed's win at Bethpage Black was the fifth of his PGA TOUR career, which is still the number he's stuck at. After a T2 in his last start (PGA Championship), Reed looks ready and willing to pick up a sixth TOUR title.

The stage is set for Brendan Steele to take on Glen Oaks Club in Old Westbury, New York, as he preps for his sixth appearance at THE NORTHERN TRUST.

Steele enters the week ranked 16th in the FedExCup race. He is 18-for-22 on the season with the clear highlight being a win at the Safeway Open. For the season, Steele ranks T33 in strokes gained off-the-tee and 32nd in strokes gained approaching-the-green. That kind of ball-striking translates well to any course. The putter should determine whether he jumps into contention, but Steele sets up as a nice cut-maker regardless of how well he's swiping the flat stick.
