Back in Sweden!

By | Uncategorized | No Comments

I got back to Sweden on Saturday. The first two days I spent in the south of Sweden at my parents place, and made a trip to my grandparents and cousins house. On Monday I finally got “home” to Stockholm. It was great to see Mattias and Jessie of course. The fall here is beautiful. We live close to nature despite living in the city. Yesterday I went on a 2.5 hour walk with the dog after I got done…

Key Largo, Phoenix and SWEDEN!

By | Uncategorized | No Comments

As most of you know, both Mattias and I are travelling quite a bit for work. This week when I was going to Bahamas, we realized that we were too close to each other not to rebook and meet up along the way. He was visiting a friend in Key Largo, FL before heading to Orlando for some work. So, Sunday morning I flew from Bahamas to Miami to head south to Key Largo and some vacation time. We had…

Hopefully I will get to play in that event in February. Here are some pics from Bahamas   Atlantis Resort. Heavenly water. Beyonces House. Gorgeous view form Golf Course.

My LPGA 2014 season over

By | Uncategorized | No Comments

My weekend was not as good as I was planning and hoping for. I finished T57 and was not able to play good enough to keep good enough status to play on LPGA next year. I tried my best, and that is all I can ask from myself. It has not been easy getting back to tournaments. The competition is getting harde and harder for every year. The courses are getting longer. I am proud of myself that I was…

Working weekend!

I had a great second day on the course here in Alabama. I shot three under 69 and am sitting in a T37 position. Finally I get some momentum to get to play more rounds. I just wish there were more tourneys for me coming up… This week I am rooming with Karin Sjödin. We are on opposite waves this week so we have not seen a whole lot of each other. Plus, I have had jetlag all week so…

Sweet home Alabama!

By | Uncategorized | No Comments

I got to Prattville, Alabama on Monday. This golf course is so much fun, love it here. This area has boomed since I was here for the first time in 2008. Several hotels, restaurants, shops and cafes (read Starbucks) have emerged since then. I have been a bit sick since I got here. Perhaps the travelling has gotten the best of me. My nose is runny and my throat is hurting a bit. My sleep is ok tho since I…

Helsingborg Open

By | Uncategorized | No Comments

I have been a bit MIA lately. Intense travels to get to Sweden on time. Tonight is the first night I actually felt jetlagged and had a hard time sleeping middle of the night. This week the Ladies European Tour is in my hometown for the Helsingborg Open. It is amazing to be back in my hometown of Helsingborg, Sweden. Not only it is lots of fun to get to be at “home” but also to see some friends and…

PNW rocks!!!

I realized something last week. I have made golf very difficult lately. As you know, the competition is deep on the LPGA tour. There are so many great golfers out there and the players are hungry, hungry for wins. It is not the place to make it difficult. Some very important components of playing the game of golf is patience and strategy. It is one thing to say you have patience, it is one thing to plan your strategy to…

CP Open …done

My game has been so consistent lately, but consistent on a lower performing level than I want it to be. I have been practicing lots and good but I just have to make some changes for something to happen with the result. I am still working on what the answer to getting to a higher level with my game is.   This week I worked very hard on the distance putts, which has been a problem of mine for a…

Total surprise. Mattias proposed to me yesterday, and I said “yes”. We are so excited! It all happened on the Canadian side of the Niagara Falls. It is beautiful there. Mattias went down on one knee…very romantic. There are not many times I am speechless…but I still sort of am…so this have to be a short post. We let the picture speak. For my American friends…in Sweden when you get engaged, both wear a ring as opposed to here when…

MAJOR Sunday on the bench…here is the rundown:

By | Uncategorized | No Comments

Sunday of the 2014 Wegmans LPGA Championship. Major. There are as many ways to spend a Sunday for a player. Probably as many as there are players. There are one big difference that will tell the field apart. Those who still play in the event, and those who do not. This week I was one of the latter. Let me tell you about mine, and the contrast of being in contention on a Sunday or being on the sidelines practicing…

It’s MAJOR time!

By | Uncategorized | No Comments

Rochester, NY. My first major of the year. I am so excited. We are at Monroe Country Club. It is a fantastic track. The one golf course I will probably ever play that does not have a single water hazard on all of the course. For many years, this tournament has been held at Locust Hill Country Club, not far away from this years venue. For some reason there was a change this year to move it to Monroe Country…

I missed the cut this week by 2 shots. But, there are lots of positives in my game this week that I will bring to next weeks major. One of the things that I have been working in a different way with is my putting and the aiming. I had made a laser putter from a duplicate of the putter I am using and it is a great tool to use in practice. Two lasers were drilled into the putter….

I am not really a golf nerd…but sometimes I just can’t help myself. I got to see a golf club collection this week that is out of this world!

Fun Pro-Am today

By | Uncategorized | No Comments

Wednesday of tournament week and I played a Pro-Am at an offsite course. I could not have asked for a better group. We had so much fun and enjoyed the day out at Thousand Oaks. The “official” Pro-Am on the tournament site consist of players that are the highest on the money list. Since I am somewhere around 130 I am not in those at the moment. Sometimes they will arrange an offsite Pro-Am where we are a part of,…

I traveled to Chicago on Sunday. The travel went very smooth…as usual SAS takes good care of me and I got a nice upgrade:) It makes it nice to be able to get a good sleep on the plane. I cannot wait until next year when they will install flat beds!! The course this week is great! We are playing at  a club called Blythfield Country Club and I really like it.

Östersund, Sweden and lost voice

By | Uncategorized | No Comments

I have been practicing away in Stockholm until Wednesday morning when I hopped on a plane to Östersund. This is Mattias hometown. This week is the yearly golf tournament week at the club as well as Storsjöyran, a yearly music festival in the city. On Thursday we played a team tournament a 2 person scramble. We had a great time but only shot 7 under…and since we get no strokes we did not finish very high in the tournament. It…

You know how some days just seem to be running more smooth than others? Today was a fantastic day! After a nice morning walk with my little blonde fourlegged friend I went to the golfcourse. On the schedule today was Bro Hof Slott Golf Club. They have two courses and I played on the Castle Course. I think it is the trickier of the two as it is the narrower of the two. I wrote yesterday that my practice has not…

Hot hot hot

By | Uncategorized | No Comments

It is so hot here in Sweden right now. As I wrote yesterday, we don’t have that much airconditioned places here as opposed to the US. It is hard to get away from the heat. I went to play today at Ullna Golf Club. It is one of my favorite courses. It requres clear strategy, good shots and some nice shortgame in case you miss the green. There was a bit of a breeze so Jessie and I enjoyed it…

Stockholm, Sweden

There are few places that beats Sweden in the summertime. I am biased, of course. The last few days have been amazing. The weather is no short of perfect and I am taking advantage of being at home. In the past, I have not spent a whole lot of time in Stockholm. Places where “everyone” has been to, are new to me. Yesterday I practiced early (to beat the heat and to have time to do something else in the…

No weekend work in Toledo

By | Uncategorized | No Comments

After two rough rounds I missed the cut and have the weekend off from tournament. What did not work this week was 1. three tee shots that cost me some strokes 2. my putting.  I started using the AimPoint a few weeks ago but I am not confident enough at it to use it in tournaments and on the course yet. I believe in the system but I tend to lose some visualiztion of the putt when I use it….

Round 1and MH17.

It seems very selfish and rude to be talking about my “bad” golf round when there is something as horrible as the plane crash today over Ukraine. It is the MH 17 that seems to be shot down. My heart goes out to the families to the victims. This is so horrible. I am lost for words on how scary I think this is. Not all days in the office goes according to plan. I shot  +2 for 73 shots…

It is already Wednesday. The weeks on tour goes by so fast! This week we had adiitional Pro-Ams on both Monday and Tuesday. I played in both. I have always enjoyed the days spent on the golf course playing scramble with amateurs. We also get paid some money to do it, so it is a nice addition to the wallet for the week.  My teams were great and on Tuesday I have to say that I played with a group…

After a few weeks back in Sweden I am ready to head out tomorrow morning. It has been wonderful to have spent some time in Sweden. The last week the weather has been beyond awesome!

I love it!   While in Sweden I have spent lots of time reading, watching…

Stockholm at its best!

The last few days have been so nice. It is sunny and warm and this is the way Sweden is supposed to be experienced! I love the summers here. The days are getting shorter but it stays light out until around 11pm still. The mornings are light early. This time of year many Swedes take their vacation. The city of Stockholm is basically made up of tourists at this time of year. Many people head out to their second home…

For those of you who have seen these animals know that they are quite large. The sound was…

First Day of Manulife LPGA Classic

By | Golf | No Comments

We are in Waterloo, Ontario in Canada this week. I like the course. It has quite wide fairways (but I managed to find some trouble out there anyways…) and the area is fairly windy which make for some interesting holes. I was off early today…7.22am. This teetime translates into a 4.45am wake up call. I have to wake my body up in the mornings otherwise I can barely move:) It was cold this morning…it was layers of clothing to stay warm….
