My disc golf chronology
In 2010 my main goals are to improve my rating and keep having fun with the game. The season has started out good with a 7th place in The Memorial, and I feel confident that more good results is coming up! Playing the international tournaments costs a lot of money, so a sponsor to help me with that would be great!

2009: Getting established as an international player
2009 was a really good year. I started the year as number 42 in the world and finished as number 33, while my rating went from 1010 to 1015. In both European Open and USDGC I played super rounds and was close to a top result. I also set a new danish long distance record on 182 meters (with a 172 g Innova Valkyrie) with only 5 m/sek wind.

2008: 1000+ rating
In 2008 things started accelerating for me, and I achieved a 1000+ rating (1009 in November 2008). I played The Memorial, USDGC and I finished second in Copenhagen Open and seventh in both Stockholm Open and Scandinavian Open.

2007: Disc golfing in USA
In 2007 I traveled to USA and played disc golf every day for three months in Florida, Arizona and California. I participated in The Memorial for the first time and found out what top disc golf is all about. Two weeks before the tournament I was fortunate to meet 12-time world champ Ken Climo. Climo really inspired me, and practicing with him really improved my game. This trip was a nice intro to the disc golf culture and quite an disc golf adventure for me - a dream come true. Even though my results wasn't the best (my best was a fifth place in Long Beach Open), I started believing that I can compeed against the best disc golfers in the world.

2006: Getting started
I've been throwing freesbees all my life, but started throwing golf discs in 2004. For a while I only had one disc - a Shark - which I used as a freesbee. I didn't play on courses until later that year, when I heard about the opening of Valbyparken in Copenhagen. In 2006 - after two years of intense disc golfing - I won the Danish Championships for the first time along with all other danish tournaments. This year I was lucky to meet my mental coach, Kenneth Brink, who has helped me with the psychological part of the game since then.
