Biography

Classified as a European Tour rookie in 2014 despite having already clocked up 70 appearances on the top tier. Earned numerous starts in co-sanctioned events through the Asian Tour, where he has held full status since 2010 and won twice. Finally secured a place in The Race to Dubai through Qualifying School when an experienced and solid performance earned him the ninth card at Final Stage. His best finish to date on The European Tour came at the Singapore Open when he finished in a share of third place alongside Graeme McDowell, four shots behind winner Adam Scott, to earn a cool €240,907. Will be hoping to repeat his feat of four years ago when a maiden victory helped him to the Asian Tour Rookie of the Year Award. Topped the Nordic Golf League Rankings in 2007 courtesy of four victories to earn a Challenge Tour card. Cites his fellow Gothenburg native Henrik Stenson as one of his inspirations.
