Enjoyed the most successful year of his career to date in 2011, when he won twice to finish a career-best 14th in The Race to Dubai. Captured the Wales Open in June before winning the Nordea Masters in his native Sweden, where he won by a staggering eight shots from Richard Finch. His 2012 season was impressive too, seven top ten finishes helping him to finish 24th 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 focussed on golf at the age of eight.
