Joined the Senior Tour after turning 50 on April 1 and will be looking to replicate his success on The European Tour, where he won six titles. One of the early pioneers of the Swedish system, has played on The European Tour since 1982. Has represented Sweden at every level, amateur and professional. Six victories in 21 seasons have made him one of the most successful golfers to emerge from Scandinavia. He led Sweden to Alfred Dunhill Cup victory in 1991 and enjoyed his best season in 1992, winning twice and finishing fourth on the Volvo Order of Merit. In 1993, he became the first Swedish golfer to play in all four Majors in the same year. Finished 123rd on the Volvo Order of Merit in 2002 but ensured his playing privileges for 2003 through his place in the Top 40 Career Money List. Played his first Senior event last week. He is playing in his first Senior PGA Championship.
