Ladies European Tour  
 

Sporty Swede Johanna Westerberg claimed her maiden Ladies European Tour title at the 2009 Portugal Ladies Open, holing a stunning bunker shot in a play-off to edge out Spain’s Tania Elosegui at Golden Eagle Residence and Golf.

Since then, she has been busy with the arrival of her first son, Leo, on 29th December. Here the eighth year Ladies European Tour member reflects on golf and life.

16. When and where were you happiest?
I'm an overall happy person; it doesn't take big things to make me happy.

17. Which talent would you most like to have?
A better memory! I learn things very easily but tend to forget if I don't use it. Damn I'd be smart if my memory was great!

18. If you could change one thing about yourself, what would it be?
If I wanted to change something I would try to do it as soon as I realised I wanted to change it. Well, ok my hair then, as I said it can bug me sometimes, but don't all girls say that?

 

19. What do you consider your greatest achievement?
Giving birth to our child! I have always walked my own way and always kept believing I can achieve what I set out to achieve.

That they are there even though we don't keep in touch all the time.

People that do something about things they dislike instead of just complaining about it.

Making phone calls to people I don't know. The funny thing is I have no problem doing it once I do it, but I can put it off forever because I think it will make me uncomfortable.

Don't have many; you learn a lot from the mistakes you make.

I don't want to die but if I have to I would say all of a sudden in my sleep when I'm a hundred+ years old.
