Who am I?

Mats

46 years old. Live 20 min drive south of Malmoe together with my partner Carina and our cats, "Sture" and "Siv".

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. 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 tricky one. 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, we'd probarbly go for a big city adventure, either in Europe or along the east coast of USA.

Favorite animal?
-Big cats, if I have to pick one? Tiger.


Have you ever tried Bungy Jump?
Yes, in Australia 1996.
(Gold Coast, Surfers Paradise) 




Who has the nicest looking golf swing?
-Louis Oosthuizen (South Africa)

Do you have a role model in the Caddie profession?
-There are a number of good Caddies on Tour. Something I have learned since I started working as a Caddie myself. I’m inspired by several different colleagues and cannot choose just one.

Finally, what Tournament would you most like to have on your resume, as a Caddie?
-Being Swedish, The Open Championship is the biggest, oldest and most honored Golf Tournament to me. The Masters as a venue, annually presented at Augusta National in Georgia, is truely special. The only golf venue that could compete with the above for me as a Caddie is pobarbly being part of the winning team in Ryder Cup, as long as the winning team is Europe. ;-)
