Player Notes

Defeated compatriot Peter Gustafsson in a play-off for the 2005 Jazztel Open de Espa?a en Andalucia at San Roque Club to secure his maiden European Tour win. Could not repeat that success in 2006, but finished comfortably in 57th place on the Order of Merit. Initially earned his place on The European Tour through the 2000 Qualifying School Final Stage and then through the Challenge Tour Rankings in 2001, when, having failed to qualify for The Open Championship, he traveled to Germany and promptly won the G?nther Hamburg Classics, the richest event of the year on the Challenge Tour, to guarantee himself a place in the top 15 on the Rankings. Lost his card again at the end of the 2002 season but had eight Top-10 finishes during the 2003 Challenge Tour season to regain his place on 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.
