Biography

Former member of both the Swedish National and University of Texas at San Antonio's golf teams and had the potential to play professional tennis. Enjoyed a rema rkable breakthrough year on the European Tour, winning three times in 2006 after earning a card at European Tour Qualifying School the year before. Caught the eye for reasons other than his golfing ability at the 2016 Swedish Challenge hosted by Robert Karlsson, where he removed his trousers to play a shot from the water - much to the delight of the home crowd.
