Played ice hockey, football and golf as a child but started concentrating on the latter when his size hampered his progress in the other two sports. Began playing when his father took him and his brothers to a par three course near their home, and was playing on a full course by the time he was nine. Has spent every summer, from early in the morning to late at night, at the golf club since then. Represented Sweden from the age of 15 and came through the Nordic League in 2010, finishing second in the order of merit, then had two full seasons on the Challenge Tour before taking the 15th card at the 2012 Qualifying School Final Stage to earn a rookie season on The European Tour in 2013. Still plays ice hockey as a hobby.
