Travelling, socializing with friends and since I’m creative I love drawing.
If you could travel anywhere where would you go?
What is your most memorable sporting moment?
In college I shot a -7 (65) and could finish this tournament with a birdie at the last hole.
What’s your best golfing tip for a beginner?
Take it easy, don’t try to hit it too far.
Do you have any superstitions before a round?
No, I try to keep myself away from superstitions. Anything that happens before a round is fine anyways. I don’t have a lucky charm neither; because if I would forget it at home I would feel bad for no special reason.
What do you have in your golf bag besides golf clubs?
Food (bananas and bars), car, keys, phone and always rain jacket, especially when I play in Sweden.
What are your goals for 2018?
Playing many events on the LET Access Series and hopefully some on the LET. Another goal is reaching the top 400, so I don’t need to qualify for the first stage of LPGA Tour School.
