Biography

Missed all but two events of the 2014 season due to tendonitis in both wrists, but returned brilliantly with victory in the Nordea Masters on home soil in June 2015. Tamed the wild winds at PGA Sweden National to win by four shots – his second triumph in his national championship, having claimed the title in 2011 by a staggering eight strokes at Bro Hof Slott. That year was his most successful season to date, also winning the Wales Open and finishing 14th in The Race to Dubai. His maiden win came at the 2009 Omega European Masters, holing a difficult bunker shot for eagle at the 15th to help him win by two. That season was interrupted by wrist and knee injuries, but the victory – and winning two consecutive Shot of the Month Awards, the latter for that bunker shot – helped make amends. After eight years competing for the Swedish national team as an amateur, decided to join the paid ranks in 2005 and quickly proved he had the game to cope with the demands of the professional arena, graduating third from the 2006 European Challenge Tour Rankings before completing a solid first season on The European Tour in 2007. In his latter seasons as an amateur, he combined four years of top ranked college golf at Oklahoma State University with economic studies, graduating with a degree in Business Marketing. Grew up playing all sports before his attention focused on golf at the age of eight.
