John Axelsen is an up and coming Danish golfing star and following on from a 2nd place finish at the Sea Best Invitational, 3rd at the Florida Gators Invitational and 9th at the Southern Highlands Invitational on the 2020 US Collegiate circuit, he made the decision to turn professional off a handicap of +6.
John has had numerous victories over the years, including the 2017 & 2018 Danish Amateur International Championships, as well as winning the World Amateur Team Championships with Denmark in 2018. He also represented Team Europe at the Ryder Cup, the Continent of Europe at the Jacques Léglise Trophy and Team Denmark at the Youth Olympics.
Having attended the University of Florida for three years, John picked up multiple individual honours, such as being selected as a 2020 & 2018 All-SEC First Team member, a 2020 NCAA Division 1 PING All-American member, a 2020 & 2019 PING All-Regional team member and was also selected on the 2020 Haskins Award Final Watch List.
He finished his collegiate career with the second-best career scoring average in program history and appeared in all seven tournaments for the Gators, taking the top spot in the lineup six time.
The young Dane now looks forward to rising up the professional golf rankings.
