Biography

With just the one season and 28 European Tour events under his belt, Madsen captured his maiden title with a two stroke victory in the South African Open hosted by the City of Ekurhuleni, to become only the third Continental European to lift the second oldest open championship in world golf. From Silkeborg GK, the same club which produced Denmark’s greatest player, Thomas Björn, Madsen played just one season on the Challenge Tour, where he gained promotion thanks to a 19th place finish in the Rankings, before improving on that category by taking the 19th card at the Qualifying School Final Stage. Earned his Challenge Tour status via the ECCO Tour in 2011, and started 2012 with a bang, finishing tied second in his first tournament of the season in Colombia. Admits that he wanted to be a footballer as a child, even though his father wanted him to play golf from an early age. Was finally drawn in when, during the summer holidays as a 12 year old, he decided to give it a go and has been hooked since. The son of an engineer father and secondary school teacher mother, he represented Oregon State University in the USA before turning professional, and is a big Manchester United fan.
