Rickard writes about his story and how his golfing career all began….
…” I picked up a golf club for the first time at the age of 10. I grew up eating, drinking and sleeping golf together with playing Handball, Tennis, Basketball, and then Curling with my Father on Sundays during the winters.
At the age of 15 I joined the National Golf Youth Team, followed by Junior and Men’s National Team for 5 years until I became a pro at the age of 20. After a good amateur career finishing with playing the World Amateur Championship “The Eisenhower Trophy 1992 together with Niklas Fasth, Fredrik Andersson-Hed and Max Anglert, I went on to play professionally.
When I turned pro in 1993, I went on to qualify for the Asian tour. I played my first tournament as a professional player at the Hong Kong Open and it was an amazing feeling playing the same tournament as my childhood heroes like Tom Watson, Seve Ballesteros and Bernhard Langer. I played for 6 years on the Challenge tour and the Scandinavian tour. I also played 2 seasons on the Asian tour (1993, 95) and 2 seasons on the South American tour (1995, 96). In 1997 I started teaching during the winters in Marbella, Spain.
Marbella was my winter home for 10 weeks a year, away from cold and snowy Sweden.
The teaching was meant to earn me some money to afford playing tournaments, but I quickly fell in love with teaching and it took over more and more from playing.
In 1997 I started teaching at Los Naranjos golf club and was coaching there for 21 years.
Since 1st of July 2019 I joined Los Arqueros as the new head pro and can’t wait to be a part of the team that will make this golf club unique in many great ways …”
