Former World and European junior champion. Originally coached by his father, Sven, but now works with Lief Nyholm. Both he and wife, Anne, lucky to escape with their lives after a multiple car crash in Germany in 1990. He can still remember the time date and place – ‘11pm, Friday March 30, near Freiburg in southern Germany’ – as if it was yesterday. Right arm was detached, left dangling by skin and muscle. Out of action for 18 months while injuries healed. Struggled on return to action and lost card in 1996. Took three months off to decide what to do with his career. Returned in 1997 and finished eighth on the Challenge Tour to retain card. Suffered broken thumb in May 1999 after being hit by a full-blooded driver from an amateur at a Company Day. Out for seven weeks. Claimed first title on The European Tour when capturing The Celtic Manor Resort Wales Open in 2000, claiming; “The only thing better than this was the birth of my two kids.” Added a second title when he won the 2002 Telefonica Open de Madrid, just three weeks after his 40th birthday, to become the fourth Danish winner on The 2002 European Tour International Schedule.
