Biography

Secured his first victory in six years when he won by three shots at the 2013 Nordea Masters in Sweden. Second and third rounds of 63 and 65 propelled him on his way at Bro Hof Slott GC, and he closed out the win with a final round 69. Become the first Finn to win The Amateur Championship at Royal Liverpool in 2000, then in 2007 he was the first player from his country to win on The European Tour International Schedule with victory in Indonesia. Achieved further success that year when he won the Scandinavian Masters title to become one of seven multiple winners of the 2007 season. The previous year, he had used the experience of that historic amateur success to full effect when he finished 16th at the same venue in The 135th Open Championship. A foot injury, which required surgery, kept him out of action for the second half of 2011, so played the 2012 campaign on a medical exemption and finished 91st in The Race to Dubai. Turned professional in 2001, immediately showing a liking for Major Championship venues by finishing tied ninth behind David Duval in The Open Championship at Royal Lytham & St Annes.
