Rasmus is a young player with an abundance of potential. Following an impressive amateur career where he won everything at boys golf level, he took the bold step to turn pro at just 17. He has matured hugely in his first year as a professional, learning to control his emotions on and off the course which has only made him a more complete player. His future excites me hugely, i expect to see both him and his twin brother making the Ryder Cup team and becoming a formidable force in European Golf
