Played pretty good yesterday. Made some good putts but also some easy mistakes. Feels like a typical round when you haven’t played a tournament for one month. 71 -1, in the the end it’s allright but 10 shots behind the leader Rashid khan that had -11. Very impressive!
Something that I think about everyday when I’m in India is why friends and other people think it is such a fantastic and interesting place? All the poverty, pollution, dirt and overpopulation I see, where is the beauty? Someone has to tell me what they see?
This is the view from my hotel this week .
It’s easy to get irritated on Delhi Gc when it’s so narrow and one bad bounce can cause a double bogey. I saw this video yesterday of some other guys who totally losses it:
Alright have a great Thursday people!
After a quick visit in Sweden 2 weeks ago to improve my health it’s starting to get together. Physically I haven’t practiced anything and golf wise, less then I usually do. However the game feels pretty good after today’s pro am and practice here in Delhi. Cause of the infection that I’ve been having in my body since the flu I been working more mentally. Especially last week when my mental coach Anders Haglund came over from Sweden to Abu Dhabi for some vacation and coaching. After 3 days of coaching I got some more insights how to be more relaxed on the course and realizing more about my thoughts.

I hope I can update the blog more often now when the health is better!
8.10 tee time tomorrow it’s time
To kick off the new season!
Back in the UAE after 24 hours in Sweden.
As I said before I went to Sweden to see Ulf Kilman. Instead of writing more about him I thought it was better to give you an interview where he can explain more himself.
HAve a great evening.
More golf is coming soon.
Writing this on the plane to Stockholm. Think that I told you about the flu and that has hard to let go. It has come to the point that Im going to sweden for some treatment from Ulf Kilman. Ulf has his own Institute outside Stockolm on an Island called Ekerö. Ulf Is a Chinesolog who has widen his knowledge on health and is the best I know the get the body healthy. I started to work with Ulf in 2007 when I had constant issues with pain in my stomach. I went to the normal Hospital and did the test that they provided, but I couldn’t get any better answer that it came from stress. I was not happy with that diagnose cause i didnt feel stressed. After some advice I went to Ulf. He told me I had an parasite and I should stop with wheat /gluten. Since then It has been good. I keep on seeing him, whenever I got sick or regularly the get “balanced” and energized”.
So if you have a issue with your health I can strongly recommend you to see him.
Practice in the dark yesterday at Yas links. constantly trying to improve my drive with speed and flow:
I got some great response on my last exercise tip so I thought it was time again:
Sorry for the quality of the sound.
I saw this cool video a few days ago. It´s not about golf but it´s still entertaining:
Had a wonderful round at Yas Links Gc yesterday. The golf course is located on Yas island. Yas island almost feels surrealistic with Ferrari world, formula 1 circuit, huge water park, ikea and the Yas mall which is soon done. The island is surrounded by clear blue water as well.
If you like golf and are going for vacation in Dubai it’s not more then 60 min from downtown Dubai to Yas island, and I can promise you it will not get disappointed
Tonight is the opening ceremony for the Olympic Games. As you all know everything has been about the terrorist threats and anti-gay laws. It’s good, noo, it’s great that the world is standing up against the corrupt things and wierd laws in Russia. Now though, it’s time to let that go and remember what the Olympics is all about, sports. People that have dreamed since they were 5 years old to win gold in the Olympics.
I read an article about Usian Bolt a while ago, then he got critic for not standing up against the Russians anti-gay laws during the WC . He replied: “I’m not here to demonstrate against the host countries laws. I’m here to run”. Of course if he toolk stand against it more will happen then the average joe if he/she goes on a holiday to Moscow and demonstrate. But once again he is there to run and if you think the law is wrong don’t think he is a coward. Go there yourself and do something about it.
Bottom line, don’t judge the athletes, give shit to IOC who accepted so much bribes so there mattresses is blowing up, also the lovely Putin!
With that said, let the games begin and enjoy the love of the people who’s dreams coming true in the Olympic Games!
I became a carpenter…
Second of all I wanna share something I have been thinking about since I heard Tiger Woods traveled to India for playing a few holes of golf. The amount is unclear, but it is somewhere around 2 million dollar. Not bad for one days work. However, I´m not the biggest Tiger fan, especially lately since he looks and plays pretty boring golf. When I heard this though I actually don´t think he did it for the money. I think he did it for his Tiger Woods Branding off course but also too actually see that he can grow the game of golf by the huge impact he does all over the world. Golf in India is a sport that very few people can afford, so it would be nice if this is a step forward to make it possible for everyone. Bottom-line Tiger has so much money so I don´t see the point for him to go to India for that reason. He wanna be a world Ambassador for golf and that we should take our hats off instead of giving him shit.
Yas Links tomorrow.
About a month ago we had dinner in my apartment at Black mountain. The topic of the evening was the dart competition. Pelle Edberg who just had a biceps workout said “I´m pretty good at this, just so you know”.
This is how good he actually was:
I Hope that gives you a smile on your face .
I got this great exercise from my coach Viktor Gustafsson:
What I dont mention in the video is that I always count on the number it carries not the total. Also, you Don´t need a trackman. If you are two people you only need a yardage camera.
Take care people!
Had a day off yesterday and went down to Dubai for the desert classic. It’s a hate love situation that appears for me there. The event is fantastic but I get angry on myself for not playing. So after some lunch I had enough and my girlfriend joined me for shopping at the Dubai mall. After a few hours spent there it was time to had down to some friends place for a fun schnapps party.
I passed on the schnapps though as I still hope that I get in to South Africa.
Someone you have to check out is my friend Jeff! He just released a few songs on YouTube. I love this one:
Take care people
Time for some golf tomorrow again!
