Claimed his second Challenge Tour victory when he won the Rotterdam International Open 2005 in September. Not to be confused with the other Per Nyman - he played as an ice hockey goal minder from the age of four until two years ago and admits his heart is with his local side, Våxjö Lakers, who play in the second division in Sweden. Began playing golf as a 13-year-old because he lived near the Våxjö course while his elder brother, Peder, a five-handicapper, played there. His father, Lars, also plays but Per had no amateur career of note. Has always looked up to Klas Eriksson, who is a member of the same club, while his coach for the past 10 years at Våxjö has been Lars Prick.
