Ended a long wait for his third European Tour title with victory at the 2014 Lyoness Open powered by Greenfinity, where he overcame home favourite Bernd Wiesberger in a play-off courtesy of a 40-foot birdie putt on the first extra hole. Had ensured another season of European Tour action by claiming the fifth card at the Qualifying School Final Stage the year before. That was the third year running he earned his place on The Race to Dubai through the School. His first two European Tour titles both came at Le Meridien Moscow Country Club, in the 2005 Russian Open and then in the 2008 Inteco Russian Open Golf Championship. Finished ninth in the 2007 Challenge Tour Rankings, winning the Italian Federation Cup in the process. Made relatively slow progress over the first five years of his professional career, but first qualified for The European Tour through the Challenge Tour in 2000. Introduced to golf by his father Lars, a four handicapper. Got down to scratch by the age of 17, played for Sweden’s Boys side in 1988 and made the full national team three years later. Represented Sweden in the Eisenhower Trophy in Paris in 1994. Spent a year at junior college in Alabama between 1993 and 1994.
