Johanna Johnson is Golf GameBook’s Ambassador in Sweden. Maybe you’ve come across her profile on Instagram: @johannajohnsongolf 😍 She is a really talented golfer and she has many cool videos on her Youtube-channel as well. She is definitely a true Golf-influencer!
Tell us a little about yourself. How did you become a golfer?
I started playing golf when I was 5-6 years old and my first club was a lime yellow iron 5a. My main hobbies as a child were of course playing golf and actually handball, which were the sports that I prioritized the most and invested the most in.
My dream job was actually to become CEO of IKEA, which was perhaps quite unusual as an 8-year-old. But I definitely became CEO!
You’re a Golf GameBook Ambassador. How did you discover #GGB?
I came into contact with Golf GameBook last year, when I had just returned to golf after 10 years away. When I was 15, I chose to focus entirely on handball and put the golf shoes on the shelf. But in the spring of 2022 I was back and started to love golf again.
A few friends had the app and I was completely hooked. I loved the fact that you could write your score in the app, you can see your score instantly and can compete easily without having to think for yourself! Revolutionary app in my opinion! It definitely made golf more fun right there in the beginning when the actual game wasn’t going great. My favorite feature is definitely being able to see exactly how far it is to various obstacles on the course using the GPS map. I certainly wouldn’t be able to play as smart as I do now if it wasn’t for the Golf GameBook app and these premium features.
When you’re not golfing, what are you up to?
After all, I usually work as an influencer with a focus on make-up, clothes and lifestyle – so it takes up a lot of my time. Otherwise, I love being at the gym and doing crossfit.
Who is your biggest inspiration in golf?
I am inspired so much by Linn Grant, of course, who has dominated Swedish women’s golf lately. She has a swing that’s better than anyone else’s and seems to be in incredible shape right now.
The dream is to have her in one of my Youtube videos.
