An impressively consistent performer on The European Tour for 17 years, he was rewarded with victory in the Dubai Duty Free Irish Open hosted by the Rory Foundation – his first win for six years. Led by one shot playing the 72nd hole, but a bogey left him tied with Max Kieffer and Bernd Wiesberger. However, birdied the first play-off hole to clinch the win, banishing the doubts he had about his form after turning 40 a couple of weeks earlier. His previous win came at the 2009 Open de Andalucía de Golf, continuing his affinity with Spain having won the 2008 Volvo Masters at Valderrama. Has a reputation as a gritty competitor and that aspect was never truer than in his rookie year of 1998 when he faced a battle to keep his card as the season drew to a close. The diminutive Dane stood tall and showed immense courage to earn €15,565 for tied 12th in the British Masters which proved sufficient to retain his card in 115th place on the Order of Merit. Never looked back after that close call and captured his maiden title in the 2003 Diageo Championship at Gleneagles. Represented Denmark in the Eisenhower Trophy as an amateur before he qualified for The European Tour through the Challenge Tour Rankings in 1997. That year he also tested his stamina in another way by running a marathon and he achieved a highly respectable time of three hours and 54 minutes.
