As a golfer who plays a full schedule on both European and PGA Tours, Henrik has a truly international appeal and marketability. The “Big Swede” is known for his disciplined play on the course and his understated charm and charisma off the course. Henrik has built a truly international image and brand recognized throughout the world.
“I grew up in southern Sweden and was introduced to the glorious game at the age of 11 by a childhood friend who asked me to come with him to the driving range. From that point on, I was hooked. I spent countless hours on the golf course as a junior, both practicing and competing in tournaments. I turned pro in 1999 and began competing on the European Challenge Tour and made my way to the European and PGA Tour where I play today.”
