Learn more about Anna and her journey below. 

 

I tried golfing when I was 10 years old because my two brothers and dad played it up. I hated it and quit. When I was 13 my mom said she was going to try it and I refused to be the worst golfer in the family, so I tried it again and I've been hooked since.

The most enjoyable part of my job is traveling the world, doing what I love and meeting so many extraordinary people and friends a long the way.

 

 

What are your accomplishments thus far?

 Won 6 times on LPGA tours and 1 Major. 4 time European Solheim Cup Team Member.

 

Who is your biggest inspiration?

My Grandpa was always my biggest inspiration because he always believed in me and told me to fight and never give up.

What’s your favorite inspirational quote?

"Carpe diem." I wear a silver bracelet with it on it on my right wrist and I have been for years.

What hobbies & activities do you enjoy in your spare time?

I love graphic design and photography. I love cooking and I enjoy different sports, paddle boarding and hanging out with friends outside of golf.

What are your guilty pleasure foods?

 Swedish candy hands down, preferably Salty licorice.

Oh Sweden... I love you!! ?? #swedishcandy

What’s your favorite music to listen to while you workout and why?

I listen to music all the time. When i work out and when I practice, I have my own gym so I have one of the bouncer speakers and play music really loud. I listen to mostly pop and anything with a good beat like Cold Play, Adele, The Fray, etc.

Why do you like listening to music? When do you like to listen the most?

Music keeps me in a happy and positive state of mind. it's a good mood setter and picks me up if I'm down.

What are your 2016 goals?

Take a medal at the Olympics in Rio and to contend in the Majors.

Proud to be swedish! ?? @gettyimages @golfchannel shoot today with the blue and yellow flag!
