    Made 2015 a year to remember by getting married and earning his breakthrough victory a few months later, defeating Martin Kaymer in a play-off at the Italian Open.

    Finished runner-up at the 2016 BMW PGA Championship en route to a career-best finish of 34th in the Race to Dubai.

    After battling injury and depression which forced him to step away from competitive golf, the Swede holed a 50-foot birdie putt on the final hole of 2019 Qualifying School Final Stage to earn the final European Tour card for 2020.

    Turned professional in 2006 and topped the Nordic League in 2007 with four victories.

    Played two seasons on the Challenge Tour before turning his attention to the Asian Tour, where he was named Rookie of the Year in 2010 after winning twice. Had already clocked up 70 European Tour appearances before earning full status at the Qualifying School in 2014.
