“The greatest mistake you can make in life is continually fearing you will make one”
Since my dad introduced me to golf, when I was 9 years old, I have been addicted to the sport. I have always loved sport in general and was quite good at different kinds, but after a few years on the golf course, I knew golf was the one.
In 2007 I was selected for the National Team, age 14, and I have represented Denmark at the European Team Championship six times and once at the World Amateur Team Championship. I loved representing my country and really enjoyed being a part of a team, which makes Solheim Cup one of the things I really want to play!
In August 2013 I decided to turn professional and to make golf more than my hobby. I started on the LET Acces series, where I won my first two tournaments as a professional! Those two wins, combined with a couple of top 10’s, I jumped into top 5 on the LET Acces Order of Merit and secured my card for Ladies European Tour 2014.
2014 was my rookie season on Ladies European Tour, where I learned a lot about how it actually is to be a professional golfer. I had an enjoyable year on Ladies European Tour and finished 29th on the Order of Merit and 3rd on the Rookie of The Year list. I had a T5th place in Dubai Omega Masters as my best result.
My main goal for 2015 was to win a tournament on Ladies European Tour. In September, the 6th to be specific, the dream came thru. I became winner of Helsingborg Open 2015. The win was very special, since I three weeks earlier in Czech Republic was leading all the way, but a tripplebogey on hole 16th sent me back to a 2nd place by two shots. To come back in Sweden and get it done was amazing!
With my win, three other top 5’s on Ladies European Tour and a finish as T11th as best European player at Evian Championship, I finished the season as 3rd on the Order of Merit.
Together with my results in 2015, my personal values got rewarded from my colleagues on the Ladies European Tour. After the last tournament in Dubai, I was chosen as ‘Players player of the year’! An award I am really honoured and proud to have received, since it’s not only based on results.
2016 became a year to remember, when I got to represent Denmark at the Olympics in Rio. It’s by far the biggest thing I have played in and it’s a week I’ll never forget. In 2016 I struggled a little bit to get the results I wanted, so when I won the Symetra Tour final in October, it was a big relief. It gave me a boost of confidence heading in to LPGA Q-school in December.
Q-school didn’t end the way I wanted, as I made double bogey on the very last hole, to miss out on my full LPGA card for 2017. It meant I had a partial status on LPGA going in to 2017.
Through 2017 I gained my full card at LPGA and after finishing 3rd at Canadian Open, I played my way into top 60 on the Order of Merit. It was a year with a lot of new things happening and it definitely took some time to get used to play against the worlds best players every week. But I had a lot of fun and
In 2018 I played full time on LPGA, but also made sure I kept my card on LET. It was definitely not the year I had hoped for. I struggled a lot to get the ball in the hole, even though I felt I did a lot of goof things. I finished 99 on the Order of Merit on LPGA and just kept my full card for 2019.
