Caught the golf bug aged ten, when he accumulated 72 Stableford points in a competition on his way to victory. The highlight of his amateur career, apart from victory in the 1990 European Young Masters tournament, was playing in the 1992 Swedish Eisenhower Trophy team alongside Max Anglert and Ryder Cup golfer Niclas Fasth. Won twice on the European Challenge Tour, in 1993 and 2000, but had to return to the Qualifying School in the latter year and again in 2001, coming through both times. Married Anna in 2004 and added his wife’s surname, Hed, to his own to emphasize his commitment to her. Regained full playing privileges for The 2007 European Tour at the 2006 Qualifying School – Final Stage, where he finished fourth. Subsequently enjoyed his finest ever season, finishing 45th in the Order of Merit. Hit a purple patch of form in the middle of the year, culminating in his joint highest finish - tied second in the Valle Romano Open de Andalucia, but was back at Qualifying School in 2009, coming 12th to secure a card for the 2010 season.
