  • Magnus P Atlevi


Magnus was one of the first Swedish golfers to make a name for themselves on the European Tour and was tipped to go straight to the top after turning professional at the tender age of 17 and successfully progressing through the 1982 Qualifying School Finals. Twice a runner-up on the European Tour, including when he lost out in a play-off to Seve Ballesteros in the Open Renault de Baleares in 1990 but lost his card the following year. In 2001, however, on his 11th visit to the Qualifying School Finals in the past decade, Magnus regained his European Tour card. Has started to branch out into golf course design having created two courses, one in Sweden and one in Finland, with his father who is an architect.He secured a maiden European Senior Tour title at the inaugural Paris Legends Championship as he carded a two under par final round of 69 to win by two strokes. Just a week after withdrawing from the second round of the Travis Perkins Masters at Woburn Golf Club through injury, Atlevi teed off in the final group on Le Golf National’s L’Albatros Course, starting the day one shot behind leader Mark Mouland. He took just ten tournaments to secure his first title on the Senior Tour since turning 50 in 2015. Secured the 2016 Senior Tour Rookie of the Year title for finishing second on the Senior Tour Order of Merit.
