Player Notes

Secured his maiden European Tour title when he defeated compatriot Peter Gustafsson in a play-off for the 2005 Open de Espa?a en Andalucia at San Roque Club and came close to repeating that success in 2007 with seven Top-10 finishes on his way to breaking into the top 20 on the Order of Merit for the first time. 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. While he lost his card again at the end of the 2002 season, bounced back again through the Challenge Tour the following year and has since become firmly established as one of Sweden's top golfers. 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.
