Affectionately known as ‘Thunder Bear’ - the English translation of his name - Olesen hails from Denmark and has been wearing the Nike swoosh on tour for over five years now. He is an exciting part of team Nike and is an incredibly valuable asset with multiple victories worldwide. His phenomenal run of form led to a first Ryder Cup appearance at le Golf National - securing a singles point against Jordan Spieth with a 5&4 victory. A model professional and a true gentleman whom we had the privelege of interviewing at the British Masters 2018.
Did you know? Olesen was actually born ‘Jacob Thorbjørn’ and chose to adopt his middle-name as it was less common in Denmark!
