Why and when did you start to play?

I started playing golf a soon as I could walk. My dad is at teaching professional and I grew up on a golf course. Getting my first club when I could stand up and walk was a must.


What are your personal goals the next 5 years?

My main goal the next years is to qualify for the Champions Tour in the US and then enjoy success on the Champions Tour. It has been a great start to my Senior career on the European Senior Tour. Winning twice in my first year 2013 and receiving the Rookie of the Year award is a great boost to work even harder and enjoy more wins in the future.


What is your best golf memory?

Certainly winning my first European Tour tournament in Wales, playing with Ian Woosnam in the final group on the last day.


What do you like about Abacus?

It is quality clothes, smart and love the wide range of colours. Furthermore Abacus is leading the way with great variety and high quality wind and rain clothes. Living in Denmark, it is imperative to wear great wind and rain gear.


Which is your favorite Abacus product and why?

Certainly the wind and rain clothes. The Pitch rain jacket is worldclass along with the Druids turtle neck. Try it and you will always wear it….

The US Senior Open Championship final round, Oklahoma, USA.


One of the toughest weeks of my golf career is over and I have battled like a true soldier for four long days. I never found the swing this week and it was a constant battle to find a swing I could play with on the course. I can’t tell you how many swing keys I have been through, because I have lost count ☺.


The US Senior Open Championship 3rd round, Oklahoma, USA.


Wow, what a roller coaster today :) It was an unpredictable day and at the end of the day I finished at two over for the round. I moved up 7 spots to 33rd with this round and it was with mixed feelings I left the course today. I struggled in the beginning of the round. Then I suddenly hit a birdie streak and was really in the drivers seat after the ninth hole. Made a stupid bogey on ten then birdie on 11 and I was back thinking I would finish under par for the day.


The US Senior Open Championship 2nd round, Oklahoma, USA.


Early morning for me with the alarm going off at 5:45 after finishing at 9 o'clock last night. I had a good warm up and played well most of the day. I got buried under the lip of the green bunker on the 8th hole and had no chance of getting the ball out of the bunker in my first shot. Sadly it took 3 shots to get out and I made a double bogey. I pulled my drive on the next hole and the ball finished up against a tree. Another double bogey and suddenly I was four over after nine and had played well. Very frustrating but I kept my cool and tried to focus on getting under par on the back nine. It could have happen but didn't make the putts I should have and I finished with 75 shots for a total of 5 over. I am excited and very happy to have made the cut. :)


The US Senior Open Championship 1st round, Oklahoma, USA.


It has been a busy time since I arrived Monday evening at Oklahoma City. Two practice rounds and a lot of practice on the range, putting green and chipping green. The course is one of the hardest courses I have played in my career. The set up is excellent and every hole is a potential disaster. There are no let up on this course, no easy birdies to come by, but very easy to make a bogey or worse. Hale Irwin was spot on when he said "it feels like I am back on the PGA Tour" :) Oaktree is as tough as they come!!!


Bad Ragaz Seniors Open final round, European Senior Tour, Switzerland.


It has been a looong week. I was playing well going in to the week and was focused on getting a good result. It all went wrong from the very first tee shot and it was a fight all three rounds. A battle I tried to win but couldn’t.


Bad Ragaz Seniors Open 1st round, European Senior Tour, Switzerland.


I will try and forget this day as quickly as possible.


Ejner Hessel Championship 2nd and final round, Denmark, Ecco Tour.


I had a good tournament at a difficult course. The course played very tough in the second round with a lot of wind, it made the small greens very tough to hit and I was very satisfied with an even par round. I made the correction on the set up, bending forward a little bit more from my hips. That gave me some more room to swing the club and made me rotate my upper body more. I played really good at times and could have shot in the 60's in this round.


Ejner Hessel Championship first round, Denmark, Ecco Tour.


The day started in great fashion with sunshine, calm conditions, good golf and two birdies on the first two holes. That was all the birdies I made all day. Had some great chances but did not make the putts.


KMD Ironman 70.3 Aarhus, a great race for me.


Sunday June 22nd was the fourth time I competed in Ironman 70.3 Aarhus. It is a half an Ironman competition with 1.9 km swim, then 90 km bike and at the end a 21 km run.


ISPS Handa Seniors PGA Championship final round, European Senior Tour, England.


A very exciting week is over and I finished 2nd in the end, two shots behind Santiago Luna, who shot a 64 today. Of course I am disappointed not winning the tournament, I played well all week and was on the leaderboards from hole one to the last hole, with a chance to win the tournament. It has been a great week for me and a boost to the confidence and I am eager to keep working hard to have a great season.
