My biography

About me

"In 1995 I started playing golf at the GC Pfaffing München-Ost e.V.. At that time still as a small 10-year-old who was more interested in playing the small white ball in "abstract" ways than making few shots. A few years later, the way of playing didn't change, but the orientation did. I was a national squad player, traveled around the world, played in the biggest tournaments and was one of the best European men's players. Of course, this was only possible when I understood how to use my playful creativity in a goal-oriented way.


But in 2009 the time had come. At the age of 24 I decided to turn professional. The rest is history. After almost eleven years as a professional golfer, member of the Playing Pro Team, winner of the Pro Golf Tour Ranking, 75 Challenge and 90 European Tour tournaments, with Michael Ballack as winner of the Alfred Dunhill Links Championship and Germany's Player of the Year (PGA of Germany "Player of the Year" 2016), I can look back on a fulfilling and successful career. As one of the few German players, I can claim to have been among the best 200 players in the world. This beautiful and fulfilling time is now over, but it will accompany me in the form of experiences, adventures and knowledge. It shapes my work today and gives me opportunities that perhaps not everyone has. This makes me proud and motivates me to incorporate this content into my profession - whether as a PGA Professional, coach, supervisor, consultant, golf service provider, podcast host or PGA of Germany board member: I look forward to the future.

2015: Victory in the Dunhill Links Championship with Michael Ballack

"This title means very, very much to me!" With this sentence I celebrated the first DM title of my career. With 15 under par and rounds of 64, 70, 72 and 67 strokes on the par-72 course of Golf Gleidingen in Laatzen near Hanover, I won the HDI-Gerling German PGA Championship.
