“I grew up and mostly saw the European Tour,” said the 23-year-old. “There are a lot of guys that played this week that I grew up with. It’s cool to be a champion on this tour, in Germany, in a place that is… not in Norway, but close by and has the same feeling of being at home. It’s a great honor and Norway finally has a victory on the European Tour. “
