    Made his Ryder Cup debut in 2018, under the Captainship of his friend and mentor Thomas Bjørn and won his singles match in impressive fashion, beating Jordan Spieth 5&4.

    Earned his place on the European team courtesy of a career-best 2018 European Tour campaign, which included a maiden Rolex Series victory at the Italian Open and two top tens in the World Golf Championships.

    The victory in Italy was the fifth European Tour title of his career and he has never finished lower than 48th in the Race to Dubai Rankings presented by Rolex, since graduating from the Challenge Tour in 2010.

    Played a part in the EurAsia Cup (2014) and in the winning team at the Seve Trophy (2013).

    Competed for his country in the 2016 Olympic Games in Rio and, alongside Søren Kjeldsen, won the ISPS HANDA World Cup of Golf for Denmark later that year.

    Partnering Lucas Bjerregaard, won the inaugural GolfSixes in 2017.

    Lives in London, is a big Manchester United fan and was formerly known as Jacob, but changed to use his middle name Thorbjørn as it is far less common.
