Biography

Possibly the most highly educated Member of The European Tour, with a Masters Degree in Nuclear Physics. One of three Danes to secure their cards through the 1997 European Challenge Tour. He made a fast start to that season by winning the first tournament, the Open de Cote d'Ivoire, after a sudden-death play-off against Anssi Kankkonen. Lost his European Tour card in 1998, but graduated again for 2000 by virtue of finishing sixth on the European Challenge Tour with five top ten placings but again lost his playing rights before returning to The European Tour in 2003 after graduating from the Qualifying School. Did not play the second half of the season after contracting testicular cancer. Happily though, has conquered the disease and will play on 2004 in a medical exemption. Took up the game at the age of 12 when he was initially taught by his brother. Major influences have been Steen Tinning's father, Sven, and former Tour player Anders Sörensen, who is his coach.
