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.

Swiss Seniors Open 2. round, Bad Ragaz, Switzerland. European Senior Tour

2015-07-04

A very long day has come to and end. It was a very mentally tiring round today. I shot 1 over par 71 today. It is a long time since I have played so well from tee to green. I hit so many great ironshots straight down the pin. It was really a joy to play and find the confidence in my swing. I hit two bad shots today and they ended up in green bunkers. I didn't manage to get up and down and settled for bogey both times.

We are having great weather and a dry golf course. The ball is running a bit this year so the course is playing shorter than normal and the reason why scores are very good.

Bad Ragaz coming up.

2015-07-01

I am sitting in Zurich airport waiting for the bus to leave for Bad Ragaz. I will wait for 2 hours and travel on the scheduled player bus taking us to the beautiful little Swiss town. It is one of the players favorite events. Great food, fun golf course, excellent organization and a very beautiful location.

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

2015-06-14

Difficult day at Close House today. We had rain in the morning and 8 degrees with wind, so the course played the hardest it has played all week. The weather got better as the day went on, but we never got above 10 degrees today.

2015-06-13

Luckily, we had calm weather today. Not a wind and 16 degrees made scoring easier. I played very well all day and is happy with my game. One big change was a new putter today. A shorter putter I keep it tight to my left arm and have left hand below right. It was a chance I took and thought that I needed to do something about my putting. I haven't been happy with my putting for a while and something had to happen.

We are at Close House near Newcastle this week. A course set in beautiful hilly surroundings. It is a tricky course because of the hilly landscape. You need to be patient when playing this course, because it will often steel one or two shots a round, because of the odd bad bounce.

I think this is the low point of my Senior career, forced to withdraw from the Acorn Jersey Open after round 2.

Summer arrived today and we had great weather with some wind to celebrate the first round of the tournament.  We are playing a pro am format this week, where we are two pros and two amateurs paired together in each group. Each pro has his own amateur partner and we play a best ball alongside the normal 54 hole pro tournament. I was in a good group today with my amateur partner Bruce, nice guy, and we had a good day socially on the course. We didn't score great, I shot a two over par 74 and the team shot two under par.
