Player Notes

Finished an excellent 2004 with fourth place in the Volvo Masters Andalucia which helped him to 42nd place on the Volvo Order of Merit, his highest ever finish. Initially earned his place on The European Tour through the 2000 Qualifying School Finals and then through the Challenge Tour Rankings in 2001 when he almost finished in the top 115 of the Volvo Order of Merit but slipped down the list as the season drew to a close. Having failed to qualify for the Open Golf Championship that year, he traveled to Germany instead and promptly won the GŁnther Hamburg Classics, the richest event of the year on the Challenge Tour, to guarantee himself a place in the top 16 in the Rankings. Lost his card again at the end of the 2002 season but had eight top ten finishes during the 2003 Challenge Tour season to regain his card for The European Tour. An impressive amateur career was rounded off by winning the Brabazon Trophy at Formby in 1998 and representing Sweden in the Eisenhower Trophy that same year. Coached by Jan Larsson, the professional at Bokskogen, where he was first introduced to the game by neighbors. Still attached to the club.
