Inspired by David Duval and his Australian coach Jim McGowan, the professional at Drobak, an hour from Oslo. Finished 13th in the 1999 Heineken Classic but had to return to the Tour School that year where he did not get his Card. Made amends at San Roque the following year and continued to show his potential with a consistent 2001 season, finishing tied for fourth in the Open de Argentina and tied for sixth in the Smurfit European Open, performances which helped him attain, what was then his highest ever ranking on the Volvo Order of Merit, 83rd.
