Biography

The son of a golf professional, he started playing the game at six years old and showed huge potential, winning the 2015 Junior Invitational and representing Europe in the Junior Ryder Cup in 2014. Grabbed the golfing headlines when he became only the third amateur to lead a European Tour event at the halfway stage after opening with 68-67 in the Nordea Masters on home soil in June 2015. Then 18, he ultimately shared 33rd place on his second European Tour appearance. Later in 2015 he came through Qualifying School Second Stage in third place, then took the 17th card at the Final Stage having led after three rounds. After playing a full Challenge Tour season in 2017 he secured a return to the European Tour finishing inside the top 15 in the Challenge Tour Rankings that year. His sister Frida is one of the top ranked female amateurs in the game, currently 12th on the WAGR.
