Biography

Ihave started to play golf at the age of 7 at the GC Salzburg-Rif, where Thomas Neureiter is president and neighbour and friend of my family and co-founder of the club. My first teacher there was Alex Müller. Having completed the secondary school, the Poly-course and the apprenticeship for clerk as well, the first local successes and the 2nd place at the Austrian Junior-Championships, the admission to the National Squad took place. In autumn 2007 I decided to change to the professionals and won already at my second competition as professional at the Sueno Classic my first prize money. On 30th September 2011 I achieved within the Austrian PGA Championships a 58-tour on the Par 71 course in Metzenhof – the lowest round which was ever played in Austria. My greatest target for the moment is a place within the Top 5 of the EPD, following the Top 20 of the Challenge Tour and finally the establishment at the European Tour.
