Former Ryder Cup Swede Jesper Parnevik will play his first tournament since February at the Nordea Scandinavian Masters in Stockholm this week.

Five months ago the 45-year-old feared his career might be over because of a fractured vertebrae in his lower back, which needed emergency fusion surgery.
