Voices about Viktor and VG Golf Academy
I have known Viktor almost my whole life and he has always helped and supported me. Since a few years we have been working hard togheter on both the full swing and the short game, and I have learned alot and also become a better player by his knowledge in swing and shortgame. He is very accurate as a coach and have been a very good player which I like alot for a coach.
Viktor has been on a long journey, from a player on Tour to implement TU ( coach training ) . Now he coaches the best youth and profesionals in Swedenl, conducts training on short game together with Henrik Lundqvist ( a course that is extremely popular ) , head pro at Haninge GK , coaches players on the Nordea Tour , Challenge Tour and the European Tour with names as Alex Noren . Personally I think he is a really good sounding board for me when I train or calling from any country and wonder if any detail of the game.
The thing that is really cool with Viktor is that he is extremely good at showing shots for theiplayers. Especially with short game . He often hits better than most players on the Tour around the greens and then he can explain it in a simple and educational way . What also characterizes Viktor is his willingness to always wanting to learn more. He has a basic idea but is flexible in its path, which will lead to something even bigger than what he is today. The latter two I think are the most important characteristics of a golf coach. It almost all other coaches miss …
The best with Viktor as a coach is that all theory is backed up with practial execution. I have laerned and developt as a player since I started to work with him and also got back the motivation for golf again.

Viktor is not just a great instructor for the big guys on the tour, he also work and help us amateurs reducing our hcp every year. On Haninge GK is Viktor also our Sport director. Amoung our members he plans differnet traing packages on winter and in the summer that is much appreciated.
We are very lucky to have Viktor so that we amateurs have an oppurtunity to develop, be inspired and reach higher level with our golf game.
