ROBERT KARLSSON

 

Why and when did you start to play?

I started playing when my father started working on Katrineholms golfklubb. He later became head greenskeeper so i literally grew up on the course from 8 years of age.

 

What are your personal goals the next 5 years?

I am really working hard to come back and play my best golf after a few not so good years. Where that leads we will see. I keep my result goals to myself ;-)

 

What is yor best golf memory?

My single best golf memory was walking up the 18th hole with Henrik Stenson as my partner in Ryder cup 2008 we had a great match against Hunter Mahan and Phil Mickelson. Also the first win on the tour was a fantastic highlight.

 

What do you like about abacus®?

I love the quality and technical part of abacus® clothing and obviously they look great as well.

US Senior PGA Championship round 2, French Lick, Indiana, USA.

2015-05-22

As I wrote yesterday, 99 times out of a 100 this course is going to eat me for breakfast! No different today. I played decent today. Drove the ball very well, was not accurate enough with my irons and had a bad day with the putter.

A statue of the course designer Pete Dye is on display at the golf course and below his name it says: Golf is not a fair game, why built a fair golf course :) Well, he succeeded. From the back tees it can measure more than 8100 yards. We are seniors and of course playing it a lot shorter, around 7100 yards but what a difficult golf course. I know it is a major and it is suppose to be difficult, this is borderline.....

Withdraw from Northside Charity Challenge Aarhus, Ecco Tour.

2015-05-04

I regret having to withdraw from this weeks Ecco Tour tournament Northside Charity Challenge i Aarhus. My ankle is improving. I was able to walk normally this morning but I am not able to swing the club without pain yet. I can do short game practice but no full swings.

Unwanted break.

I returned to Denmark last Friday and it feels good being back in the cool air and in the middle of the Danish spring. I had a good run in the forest Friday afternoon. What a change from the Florida heat, it is so much easier to run when the body is not struggling to get rid of the produced heat. Unfortunately, I twisted my left ankle running Saturday morning and had to withdraw from the Ecco Tour tournament Bravo Tours Open by Visit Tønder. The ankle is slowly getting better and I hope to be back on the course this weekend hitting balls and preparing for next weeks Ecco Tour tournament. Time will tell :)

Coral Springs Senior Open, Eagle Trace, Florida, final round.

2015-04-25

I hit a lot of good shots in todays round. I managed to avoid any penalty shots also, but had a day where I didn't make any putts. Putting on these very slow and grainy greens has been an issue for many of the players this week, and I am one of them. I am happy with the result after round 1. Shooting 7 under for the last two rounds and not making any putts today. I finished 14th and the tournament was won in 12 under par, not bad for a bunch of Seniors :)

 What a messy day on the golf course.  I did not have much going in the warm up today. Couldn't find anything that worked on the range and was very confused on my swing. Can't find my timing so I am searching for the ball at the bottom of my swing. There is not a natural low point, so I am hitting at the ball more than swinging through the ball. I am struggling to keep the clubhead on line, and is pulling my bad shots to the left. This is much like what happen last week with my swing.

River Bend, Ormond Beach. Florida, Sunbelt Tour, final round.

2015-04-19

I ran out of steam today. It all started very well. Hit a lot of good shots in the beginning of the round. I squared up my shoulders and took the club away from the body. Suddenly I hit a lot of good iron shots. My putter was working well and I got 3 under through 6 holes. That was pretty much the highlight of the day.  It was all downhill from there. I 3 putted twice downhill from 15 feet, trying to make the birdie putt and charged the putts by the hole, failing to make the return putt.

This is a strange week. I am not playing very well, but I am not doing much wrong either. Just sort of keeping the ball in play and then patiently waiting for a few good shots to happen.

Back to tournament golf after a weekend of ½ ironman competition 70.3 Ironman Florida at Haines City.  I am fully recovered after a very hot and tough ½ ironman. Happy to be back on the Sunbelt Tour with the old guys.
