Interview

"I play Bubba golf. Self-taught, aggressive long-distance ball whacking. He won himself a green jacket but I’m gonna win me a crown..."

When did you start playing golf and why?
At the age of 15 when me and my brother took my father’s old clubs and just started whackin' it across our lawn. I mean it was a big lawn, but soon we had to find a bigger playground. Shortly after I scored 72 Stableford points in my first tournament, so I stuck with it.  

Your current handicap?
4,4

Your home Golf Club?
Is Maxlrain Golf Course a bit south of Munich, which is a pretty down to earth club but with a challenging design and kick ass standards in green keeping thanks to my buddy Howie

Best trick on and off the green?
10 Meters of backspin with my new Vice Pro balls.

Favorite place to play?
Gut Häusern north of Munich. Though course, yet it’s still possible to score big time if you’re willing to risk one or the other long shot

Your "Dream Flight"? Who would be with you on the green?
I guess that would be Rory, Bubba and Poults, so I can outdrive at least one of them.

Golf is... 
A real sport, ladies and gentlemen. Better start believing it.

 

Looking forward to KING of GREENS 2015 because…  

I’m really keen to play the course that might end up giving the best guys in the world trouble in a future Ryder Cup in Germany. 

This will be even better being there with my team of fellow shredders to get that Ryder Cup feeling going.

 

Best things to do in Berlin?

Check out the multicultural mix of people. It’s always good fun for a freak to be around others. And Berlin definitely is the home of freaks. 

 

Best memories of KING of GREENS 2014 (if you have participated)?

Winning the team comp with the snowboarders and also the great athmosphere during the two days in London.

 

Any message to the KING of GREENS Teams (Snow, Ski, Surf, Skate)?  

Let’s all have a really good time again, cause that’s what Golf’s about.
