Returns to The European Tour in for the first time since 2010 after claiming the 16th card at the 2013 Qualifying School Final Stage. Started golf aged nine when his father gave him a seven iron for Christmas, but lucky to be playing golf at all after a horror car crash in his native Sweden in 1992 in which he was thrown through the sun roof. Spent a month in intensive care as a result and had his spleen removed, necessitating periodic injections to compensate for the loss. Won twice in three years on The European Tour from 1998 and partner Ulrika caddied for him until she gave birth to the couple’s first child, Hugo, in 2000. His unbroken European Tour attendance from 1996 came to an end in 2005 and he fell out of love with the game, appearing only twice on The European Tour in 2006 and making only one Challenge Tour appearance in his native Sweden in the Telia Challenge Waxholm. But his appetite for practice returned and he put it to good use, emerging successful from the Qualifying School Final Stage in 2006, 2007 and 2009.
