Player Notes

Eleven years of waiting ended when he won the 2007 Maybank Malaysian Open to claim his second European Tour victory to add to his triumph in the 1996 Moroccan Open. He came within a whisker of successfully defending the title in 2008 only to lose out in a play-off to India's Arjun Atwal. It was the third play-off defeat of his career, the previous two occasions both being in 2003, the year he played on a medical exemption after missing a sizeable proportion of the 2002 season with a broken right leg, sustained playing in an ice hockey match in December 2001. Introduced to golf at the age of six by his father, Olle, who remains his coach. Was Swedish Boys champion at 16, and the following year he won the 1987 Doral Junior Classic to promise a rapid rise to the top. Won three times on Challenge Tour within 18 months in the early 1990s but it took six visits to the Qualifying School to establish himself on The European Tour at the start of 1994. His sister Marlene is also a tournament professional.
