Biography

The European Tour’s return to Valderrama in 2010 was music to the ears of the Dane, who won the 2008 Volvo Masters at the Costa del Sol venue. Once again he displayed an understanding of the course’s challenges with his best finish of the season, tied second behind Graeme McDowell in the Andalucía Valderrama Masters. That week continued a love affair with Spain, which in 2009 had produced a victory in the Open de Andalucía de Golf before he recorded his best finish in a Major – tied sixth at the US PGA Championship. 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. But 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. Has been a consistent performer every year since then, finishing no worse than 69th, and his consistency resurfaced again in 2012 when five top ten finishes helped him to 42nd place in The Race to Dubai. 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.
