Play Schedule 2016

I’m based on the PGA European Tour. When I pick my competitions of the season, I look at it holistically to achieve as good of a flow as possible on all levels of life. Normally, I play a maximum of 4-5 weeks in a row and about 20-24 competitions in a season.

One competition that is a recurring favorite is the PGA Championship at the Wentworth Club just outside London.

En tävling som är en återkommande favorit är PGA Mästerskapen på Wentworth Club straxt utanför London.


My remaining competitions 2016

100th Open de France, 30/6 – 3/7 

I feel comfortable on this course and it suits the audience perfectly. An upcoming Ryder Cup course.


Scottish Open, 7/7 – 10/7 

Castle Stewart is a new acquaintance for me, since the competition travels around. It takes place the week before the British Open and always has a good line-up, as it is played under similar conditions as the British Open.


145th Open Championship, 14/7 – 17/7

I will try to qualify for The Open, which played at Royal Troon. I played my first British Open here in 1989! The American Mark Calcavecchia won that time after a playoff.


Swedish Challenge, 4/8 – 7/8

A big week for me since I will be hosting this Challenge Tour tournament played in Katrineholm. It is also special because everyone involved in Katrineholm have made it possible to create another big tournament in Sweden.


Czech Masters, 18/8 – 21/8

I’ve never played the Albatross Golf Resort, located outside Prague. However, new courses and competitions are always fun.


Made in Denmark 25/8 – 28/8

I played with Sören Kjeldsen here last year when he celebrated his 500th competition on the European Tour. The organizers surprised him with a celebration when he came up on the 16th green. A great moment for him and fun for us who played in the same ball.


KLM Open, 8/9 – 11/9

The winner of the Swedish Challenge will receive an invitation to play this competition, which this year is hosted on a new course.


Italian Open, 15/9 – 18/9

We play in the park next to the historic Monza Formula 1 track. The course is a traditional and Trixie park course. Last year, Rickard Karlberg won here…


European Open, 22/9 – 25/9

Many players become giddy like little kids this week, when we have the opportunity to test-drive Porsche cars, since they are the name sponsor of the competition. Great greens last year and well-organized, as always in Germany.


AD Links Championships, 6/10 – 9/10

I won here in 2008, which creates extra good memories before this special week. It’s usually long days when amateurs and professionals play together. The tournament takes place on three superb golf courses where the finishing round is played at St. Andrews.


British Masters, 13/10 – 16/10

An old-school tournament which made a comeback last year. This year’s edition is played at The Grove outside London.


Portugal Masters, 20/10 – 23/10

Algarve is fantastic in many ways, but the competition has been marked by rain in recent years. My best achievements here have been second and third place. So this year it’s time for the crowning glory!
