"Teamwork Makes The Dream Work"

Who am I?

Mats

43 years old. Live in Malmoe together with my partner Carina and our cat, "Sture".

Background

Worked 23 years with Industrial process and flow engineering. Project management, calculations, dimensioning, corporate management, lectures and education.

Athletic background

Tennis, Football, Taekwondo, Squash

Started playing golf and got my "Hcp certificate" at the age of 17´(1993), after having been inspired by a skilled class mate.

3 years later 1996, when I was living and studying in Sydney (Australia), I was privelidged enough to meet with and practice my own game of golf, with PGA Pro David Merriman. I strongly believe that our meetings planted a seed in me and started growing an urge and a dream of working along with the best golf players in the world, one day. As a Professional Caddie you stand next to your player in good and bad. A truely unique position in the world of Professional Sports.

12 Quick questions?

Interests outside the golf course?
- Hanging out with loved ones, cooking, interior decoration and other sports.

Favorite club in your own golf bag?
-I like all my clubs, but if I have to pick one here and now, I'd go for my Putter.

Favorite country?
-Oh, that's a difficult question. Australia lies to my heart, a country I like to visit. A pity it's so far away.

Favorite food?
-I'm an omnivore, so it's a bit dependent on the season. I always enjoy a BBQ when home. In general i prefer a variation of meat, fish, seafood and in recent years also vegetarian.

Sporting role model?
-Roger Federer

Beer or wine?
-I Like both, but a glass of good red wine is difficult to beat.

Where do you prefer to spend a long weekend?
-Together with Carina in New York "Manhattan", sits in the top end of my "Bucket List".

Favorite animal?

Have you jumped Bungy Jump?

Who has the nicest looking golf swing?
-Louis Oosthuizen

Do you have a role model in the Caddie profession? -There are an incredible number of good Caddies, not least I have learned it since I started working as a Caddie myself. I am inspired by several different colleagues and therefore cannot choose just one.

What Tournament would you most like to have on your resume, as a Caddie?
-As an individual Tournament, The Open Championship is the biggest, oldest and most honored Golf Tournament, so it would be great fun to have on my resume. The only golf venue that could compete with the "Majors" and possibly even beat the experience of being Caddie in a Major is: Ryder Cup, it would be real special.
