    Hi everyone! My name is Anders, and I'm from Bergen, Norway. I started playing discgolf in 2005, and have been working hard to improve my game ever since. I won my first Norwegian Tour tournament in 2010, and have two top 3 finishes so far in 2011. I have represented Norway in the last three European Championships, and I was also the Norwegian national representative at the 2008 USDGC.

    I became a Team Millennium player in 2008, and have played exclusively with Millennium discs since then. What makes Millennium unique to me, is the quality in every single one of their discs. They may not have the biggest selection to choose from, but their line of models offers exactly all you need to play solid golf at any course and in any conditions, especially with the additions of the Astra and the Quasar! Also I would like to mention the Sentinel MF, one of my favorite discs. Its high speed, predictable fade and unique capability to keep elevation makes it one-of-a-kind!

    We might not have too many courses here in Norway, but we do have some good ones among the 40+ we have. My home course in Bergen is one of my favorites, together with the courses in Arendal, Skien, Bodø, and Tønsberg. Among the courses I've played on abroad, Winthrop Gold, Wagrain (Austria), Blue Ribbon Pines (MN) and Järva (Sweden) stand out.

    To play smart and to keep it simple is a good way to describe my game. I love to throw slow discs, and I use my Omegas and QMSs all the time, even off the tee. If more distance is needed, I turn to the Orion LF or the EXP1 1.7. When practicing, I mainly focus on putting, the straight shot, and the short game. To me, these three factors are the key to low scores out on the course.
