Introducing our partner, golfer Simo Haavisto

12 November 2018

Our partner, Simo Haavisto, is one of the most brightest stars among Finnish golfers.  As the Naantalin Aurinko Golf as his home club, he got in the professional golfing series when he was just 19 years old, and in the same year he also gained the right to play in the renown Nordic Golf League in Nordic countries. At his younger age Haavisto has also represented Finland in the Finnish national team of under 18 years of age.

- I've only just reached the very beginning on the long path of a golf professional. There are important struggles ahead that affect how I can get involved in major tours. The goals for the next season are geared towards the European Tour qualifying games at the autumn, where the participation rights for the racing season 2020 will be allocated.

In the winter, Haavisto is perfecting his technique

Haavisto ended his season for this year at the Öland Ekerum Masters competition in Sweden at the end of September. For the rest of the year Haavisto focuses on training techniques and practicing in the gym. In January, the training will be intensified when Haavisto heads for a foreign training camp before the upcoming season's competitions. Before the start of the actual race season, Haavisto will play a couple of winter competitions in February-March.

We are delighted to follow the development of a young golf professional and to support his career as a partner. We wish Simo good luck for training and success for green fields!
