A Quick 9 with Caroline Larsson

Why do you want to come to play on the Ladies European Tour?

My plans are to play on the Ladies European Tour and it’s another step forward in my career.

How did you prepare for this tournament?

I have been living in Melbourne, Australia for the last three months and I have been working on my swing with my coach Christian Small and psychologist Warren Kennaugh. I have been practising five hours a day with two hours of fitness every other day. I take two days off per week. I’ve also played on the Swedish Nordea Tour for a few years. This is the second year I’ve focused full time and between April and September played in 10 tournaments before spending the last three months in Australia.

What are your expectations for 2012?

Have a year where all the good work and hours I’ve spent pays off. I’m looking for better statistics, better ranking, making my aim a card on the LET. If I get that my goal will be top 30 on the ranking and a first win, hopefully in Sweden at Vasaborg. That course is 45 minutes from where I live and we played a tournament there on the Nordea Tour.

What is your lowest round?

70 (-2)

What is the best part of your game?

Hitting a lot of greens.

What is your average driving distance?  

200 metres.

What is your putting average?

32 or 31.

Have you had any hole in ones?

One.

What is your favourite course?

Falsterbo GK.

Do you have any nicknames?

Carro.

Do you have any superstitions?

I don’t play with number fours.

Any lucky number?

Number 2.

What languages do you speak?

English, Swedish and a little French.

Education?

I started playing and was on the Swedish National Team for two years, but in my family, we have a tradition to study, so I have studied for the last six-and-a-half years. I’m a teacher in school and I’m also a professional swing coach. I teach Physical Education and English and act as a substitute school teacher. I spent three and a half years at teaching school and three years at the Swedish PGA to become a teaching pro. I worked for three summers as a teaching pro at Rungsted in Denmark three years ago and then taught at Ljunjhusen south of Malmo two years ago.

Who are your golfing heroes?

Carin Koch.

Who is on your team?

Christian Small: swing coach, Warren Kennaugh, mental coach, Ben Hayes, caddie to Brett Rumford on the European Tour and boyfriend, Brett Rumford: short game expertise.
