Biography

Highly regarded as one of the European Tour’s greatest players. Came through the Challenge Tour by winning four titles on his way to topping the Rankings in 1995, before emerging as a genuinely world-class player, capturing the Loch Lomond World Invitational in 1996 – the first of his 15 European Tour victories to date. Became the first Danish Ryder Cup player in history in 1997 as he made his debut, before appearing in the biennial contest twice more in 2002 and 2014 – forming part of the winning team on each occasion. Appointed Chairman of the European Tour’s Tournament Committee in 2007, he also captained Continental Europe in the Seve Trophy in 2009, and has been Vice Captain to Bernhard Langer, Colin Montgomerie, José María Olazábal and Darren Clarke in the 2004, 2010, 2012 and 2016 Ryder Cups. Finally earned the Captaincy for the 2018 matches at Le Golf
