About Athlete

I am a golfer born in late 2002 and I have been playing golf all my life. I have been playing competition since I was eight years old. I believe playing in tournaments is a really big part of golf and if not the most fun as well but training with friends and alone is really developing for me as a player. The last years my scoring average has gone down drastically with around 3-4 strokes per years and is now on 74,08 this season. I have been living with my parents since I was born but the last years I have moved to a golf academy I Sweden, so I have lived on my own in dorms since I was 15 years old with all that comes with it for better and worse. For example cooking my food and taking care of my homework. Now my plan is to continue my education and golf carrier overseas in the States.

What makes you different?

My ability to focus when the pressure is high. I never throw away shots and have had a bogey free competition round this year. That means my course management is already very good. The last years my scoring average has gone down from 79 to 74 and has a steady pace continuing downwards. I have a good ability to play good with all people and therefore I have been playing mixed foursome in Sweden’s Team championship the last years, were we scored a 67 and the lowest mixed foursome score in the whole competition.

Why do you want to compete in college?

I want do get experience simultaneously with a good education and evolve as a player and a person, therefore I can be more prepared getting to play on professional tours. Education is really important and a big part of a student’s life and that is why you will see the same commitment in school as you would on the golf course.

College Goals?

My goals for college is to get a good education and be prepared for what is going to come on tour, and what has to be expected of me to succeed both in school and on the golf course.
