Australia is often overlooked and some would say forgotten when it comes to golf. Perhaps it’s the relative isolation from the mainstays of the European and PGA Tours. Perhaps it is just a lesser known quantity or just a bit too far to travel for a short golf trip. What I can assure you is…
It’s no secret that Georgia is full of golf history. People beginning to utter the words “The Masters” shortly after spring turns the corner, is enough to make the hair stand on the back of your neck. Being host to a plethora of professional and amateur events always give people reasons to flock from near…
On a chilly and sunny September Monday morning two weeks ago, me and my friend Anniina Paatsama packed up our golf gear and headed towards Hämeenlinna to attend the GameBook Invitational held at Linna Golf. My attendance to different golf tournaments/ events has slacked after my competitive golf career ended 7 years ago so these…
It’s time to introduce one more of our Ambassadors. This time we are traveling to Florida to get to know Henrik, a Finnish College Golfer at Florida Tech. Henrik hit his first ever golf shot in Mijas, Spain at the age of three. It did, however, take him a couple more years before he played…
It’s time to travel to Ireland to meet #GBambassador Eoin. When we asked him to describe himself in three words, he chose the words competitive and sporting. His friends describe him as punctual 😉 Eoin started playing golf in his 20s. His mum & dad played regularly but he was away at school or playing…
It’s time to return to Sweden to meet #GBambassador Felix. Felix describes himself as ambitious, competitive and funny. He started golf in Helsingborg, in the South of Sweden, where his father introduced him to the game. Allerum Golf Club was the first club where they began to play together. When we asked Felix how he…
It’s time to get to know more of our Ambassadors. We have now traveled from Sweden to Denmark to meet #GBambassador Johan. Johan started playing golf in 1993 at the age of 8 at Vestfyns Golfklub in Denmark. Johan describes himself as competitive, provocative and a bad loser. We were curious to hear how he first heard…
In this blog series we are introducing the GameBook Ambassadors. Last week we traveled to Australia to meet Jonathan. This time we are going to meet Petter from Sweden.

In this blog Golf GameBook’s staff will discuss the app and Golf related topics – all for the sport we love.

Golf GameBook app is like a clubhouse in your pocket. We offer you the most effective and social way to keep score in golf allowing you to connect with other golfers and share live results, comments, photos and videos – no matter where you are, on and off the golf course.

Petter describes himself with the following phrase: I Hate to Lose! He started golf at the age of 10, in his hometown Västervik in Sweden at Ekhagens Golf Course.
We wanted to hear how Petter first heard of GameBook. He told us that he was just googling around for an easy way to keep his score and also track his statistics. He found GameBook and thinks that it’s the absolute best!
We’re interested to hear what Petter’s favorite golf club is.
Hmm, my friends would probably say the driver, which I unfortunately have to agree with! But I wish it would be the putter.
Petter enjoys using GameBook because it is easy to start using, it’s simple to choose the game and it’s also convenient to see the statistics after the round. Petter and his friends use the app for each round of golf. It does not matter whether they’re 2 or 12 people, they all like to keep statistics and compete against each other with the different game formats.
The best part of the app in Petter’s opinion is the live leaderboard. I mean who would not be trying their best to climb up the leaderboard during the last 3 holes? Especially when you see that you’re right after your buddy in the leaderboard.

Of course, we’re curious to hear who is Petter’s all-time favorite golfer. He says that there isn’t just one single player, since there are many players who have insprired him, including the big stars like Tiger. Stenson has always been up there as well. Petter enjoys following the guys who have not really been on the top previously. Right now he loves following the young guys, such as Rickie Fowler, Justin Thomas and Smylie Kaufman.
My personal favorite from Sweden is Alex Norén. I love his style to putt & play golf!
