Biography

Became only the second Dane, behind Thomas Björn, to play in The Ryder Cup when he qualified to be part of Sir Nick Faldo’s European Team at Valhalla Golf Club in 2008. Excelled in the first afternoon fourball session where he partnered Lee Westwood to a half point against J B Holmes and Boo Weekley. Booked his place on the flight to Kentucky with an excellent 2008 season which featured a dozen top 15 finishes, including six in a row during an impressive ending to the year. Maintained that consistency in 2009 and recorded his best finish in a Major – tied sixth at the US Open Championship. Secured his first European Tour title in the 2002 Irish Open at Fota Island and followed that up with his second in the 2007 Mercedes-Benz Championship in Germany. Began his professional life on the European Challenge Tour and quickly gave notice of his potential, winning his first Challenge Tour event – the 1998 Navision Open Golf Championship at Himmerland in Denmark after a three way play-off – within a year of turning professional. That victory helped him graduate to The European Tour at the end of that season and he has not looked back since, regularly featuring in the upper echelons of the Order of Merit with his highest finish to date being eighth in 2007. Suffered a fractured rib in May 2012 which kept him out of action for the rest of the year, and as a result has a medical extension for 2013.
