Today Søren Kjeldsen and Thorbjørn Olesen received “Den Gyldne Golfbold”, the trophy that is given to the Danish Golfer of the Year.
In 2016 this honour is shared between the two Danes for their historic win in The World Cup of Golf in late November at Kingston Heath, Melbourne, Australia.

“It’s a great honour to receive this trophy. It makes me both proud and humble, and I’m genuinely happy to receive the trophy together with Thorbjørn. Golf has given the both of us so many proud moments and experiences, so being able to give something back to our fans and supporters – a first ever Danish World Cup win – means a lot to us. We would like to thank everyone for their great support. It makes a huge difference,” Søren Kjeldsens says.


It’s the Danish association of golf journalists and The European Tour tournament Made in Denmark, who is behind “Den Gyldne Golfbold”.
Søren Kjeldsen also received the honour in 2008 and 2015.
