Struggled with a back injury in 2014, only managing to tee it up ten times during the season, en route to 134th on The Race to Dubai. That was his lowest finish since 2003, and the Swede will play in 2014 under his Career Money List exemption. Only two years ago he missed one cut all season in a stunning 2012 campaign, during which he won twice, at the KLM Open and the BMW Masters, to finish a career-high fourth in The Race to Dubai. Also part of Europe’s sensational victory in The 2012 Ryder Cup at Medinah, his second appearance in the contest after claiming one point from three at The Celtic Manor Resort two years earlier. Another highlight of his career came in 2008 when he won his national open championship, the SAS Masters, at Arlandastad Golf in Stockholm, to become the first Swede to win the event in ten years. That was his second European Tour victory, following his win at the 2005 Open de España en Andalucia at San Roque Club, where he beat compatriot Peter Gustafsson in a play-off. Initially earned his place on The European Tour through the 2000 Qualifying School Final Stage and then through the Challenge Tour Rankings in 2001, when, having failed to qualify for The Open Championship, he travelled to Germany and promptly won the Günther Hamburg Classics, the richest event of the year on the Challenge Tour, to guarantee himself a place in the top 15 on the Rankings. While he lost his card again at the end of the 2002 season, bounced back again through the Challenge Tour the following year and has since become firmly established as one of Sweden’s top golfers. An impressive amateur career was rounded off by winning the English Amateur Open Stroke Play Championship at Formby in 1998 and representing Sweden in the Eisenhower Trophy that same year. Coached by Jan Larsson, the professional at Bokskogen, where he was first introduced to the game by neighbours.
