Markus started to play as early as a three year old when he followed his golf-bug-bitten parents to the golf course. Today, he is still a keen golfer. Even though he now focuses on perfecting his students golf games, he still loves to play and compete. Markus says that he never seems to loose his will to improve.
Among his career highlights are 8 professional victories, a Swedish Amateur title and a unique Scandinavian Tour record score of 60 strokes (11 under par) in Landskrona 2006.
