When I was a child, I pretty much played anything with a ball along with downhill skiing. The first sport I really enjoyed was tennis. However, golf became much more of a focus for me throughout my teenage years. In fact, there were several occasions where I was leading a junior tournament, but purposely dropped a shot or two down the stretch.
My dad picked up on this and started asking tournament organizers to request that the second and third-place finishers say something as well.
This tactic forced me to face my fear and was exceptionally beneficial to me in the long run. Sweden was a wonderful place to grow up. Swedes love their sports and our family was no different. We were always playing something — tennis, golf, soccer, skiing. I think Swedes love the sun and being outdoors and what better sport for that than golf. If I had to pick a favorite course, it would be Bro-Balsta, which is where I learned the game and grew up playing. I have been fortunate to visit many incredibly beautiful places during my career.
Yes, my sister, Charlotta, was a very accomplished player as well. She then moved on to the LPGA and won there as well. Unfortunately, she started having some issues with injuries that cut short her playing career. We were always competitive on the course and off of it. It was quite the journey to get to Colonial, and I cherish the memories made that week, but also the countless hours of work on the course and in the gym that led up to it.
I had incredible support and learned a lot about myself. I think there were a few factors. For one, I had a neck injury that year, which made it harder for me to practice like I needed to maintain my high standard of play. As you note, I think it all depends on motivation. Some players, like a Laura Davies or a Bernhard Langer, are driven to play at a very high level for decades. Others play for a considerably shorter amount of time. Janet Anderson. Donna Andrews.
