Niklas talks about how he has adjusted to the step up from Challenge Tour to DP World Tour, his upbringing in Copenhagen, how he managed to decide Golf was the way forward. Niklas turned pro before 2016 starting out in the Nordic Golf League where a couple of years starting out there he managed to gain a handful of Challenge Tour starts which proved to be good experience as in 2019 Niklas would go onto having 13 Top 10 finishes in Nordic Golf League including a win at Race to HimmerLand at the end of 2019 aswell as 6 2nd placed finishes and 6 finishes between 4th & 10th to ultimately win the 2019 Nordic Golf League Order of Merit to gain status on Challenge Tour. Another win back in Denmark at Esbjerg Challenge back on Nordic Golf League followed in 2020 before a strong finish to limited 2020 schedule. In 2021 it was a great year as Niklas would have good finishes in Sweden, Czech Republic aswell as a 8th at Made in HimmerLand tournament in limited DPWT start this, a strong finish to the season would happen to ensure that after the final event in Mallorca on the Challenge Tour Norgaard Moller would win his full DP World Tour Card finishing the 2021 season in 16th place to earn promotion to the 2nd biggest tour in Golf. We also talk about the Danish revolution of players currently on show aswell as giving a couple of picks for Masters this week at Augusta.

This week we are back to historic Bay Hill Club & Lodge at Arnie's place for this year's Arnold Palmer Invitational where Bryson DeChambeau bomb & gouged his way round to win at -12 last year. A notoriously tough golf course measuring around 7,500 yards it is one of the longest & toughest on Tour. Craig & Jamie are back to talk all things Bay Hill with both having picks we feel have plausible chances to fulfil their destiny of winning the prestigious API title. It always is a cracking event and this should be no different. The DP World Tour is back this week as we are in Nairobi, Kenya for Kenya Open where it is being played at Muthiaga GC which lasted hosted the event on the Challenge Tour in 2018 where Lorenzo Gagli defeated Jens Fahrbring in a play off at -11. In a weakened field there is still some value to be had as the DP World Tour returns. Shout-out to Sporting Life don Ben Coley for mentioning our podcast in his recent Sporting Life column for Kenyan Open in regards to our player interview with Wil Besseling. We appreciate it alot and we hope Besseling goes well for you this week! All the best & enjoy!

    It was a non entity week really for the picks for Jamie & Craig but a nice 20/1 T2nd with Morikawa & 150/1 T3rd with Tom McKibbin places for Ryan as keep the current streak of places going. What a fantastic performance by the talented Chilean Joaquin Niemann who blitzed The Riv away in spectacular fashion eventually winning by 2 shots at -19 although did get to -21 at one stage but nonetheless very impressive from a player with a big future. This week Craig is joined by Owen Vrabel of Draws n Fades Podcast to go over Honda Classic as we arrive at the start of the Florida Swing for the better part of PGA Tour season starting at PGA National (Champion Course) which historically is won between -6 & -12 so it is a very firm test for players. It's just a shade over 7,045 yards originally designed by Fazio's then took a redesign by Jack Nicklaus in 2014 including the gruelling 3 hole stretch from 15-17 known as 'The Bear Trap' which I one of the toughest stretches on Tour.

Scheffler thoroughly deserved his maiden PGA Tour victory defeating the form player in the world Patrick Cantlay in a play off. In a spectacular week on and off the course last week in Arizona Craig & Ryan go over the major talking points from TPC Scottsdale as we gloss over the pandemonium of the 16th hole witnessing 2 hole in ones at 16 in the same tournament with Sam Ryder & Carlos Ortiz making aces to absolute set the fans into a frenzy in what is a notoriously noisy hole regardless of that. We also go over the fallout from Charley Hoffman rants at PGA Tour while insinuating Saudi money along with Phil Mickelson & Bryson DeChambeau, getting blocked on Twitter by the easily offended Phil. This week we are back in California at the traditional Riviera CC in Pacific Palisades where traditional one of the tougher scoring events in the PGA Tour circuit.

Firstly give us a follow on Twitter @ChasingPars_Pod & on Instagram @Chasingparspodcast. You can follow us on Twitter @ThomsonGolf94 @Js_GolfingTips & @GolfTipster5. So this week we are back at Stadium Course at TPC Scottsdale in Arizona for Waste Management Phoenix Open which was designed by Tom Weiskopf & Jay Morrish in 1987. Traditionally this event is won by a high calibre player that is playing in the field. Brooks Koepka won last year and is a 2 time winner, Hideki Matsuyama is a 2 time winner while likes of Webb Simpson, Gary Woodland & Rickie Fowler have also won this event in the past which is famed for the rowdiness of the Par 3 16th hole which is possibly the noisiest hole in Golf. Brooks Koepka chipped in at 17 last year to steer his way to a victory last year after sudden collapses from Xander Schauffele & Jordan Spieth. Superb field, should be a good event. On DPWT this week we stay yet again in United Arab Emirates at the same course as last week in Al Hamra GC for Ras Al Khaimah Classic where last week Nicolai Hojgaard was sensational winning by 4 shots at -24 to win his 2nd DP World Tour Title at age of 20.

    In this special episode we had the honour of being joined by the 'Fairytale story' of 2021 Richard Bland. In the episode Blandy gives us all an update on his current situation regarding knee injury after having knee surgery at the end of the season, we talk about DP World Tour taking over from European Tour and what that means from a Tour players point of view. Blandy assesses his early years on tour between 1996-2000 after turning pro in 96 which would be catalyst for a very successful year in 2001 where would have 4 top 10 finishes on Challenge Tour including a 5 shot victory at 2001 Challenge Tour Grand Final in Bordeaux which would secure full playing rights on European Tour in 2002. In 2002 Richard would finish T2nd and miss out in a playoff Vs Soren Hansen & Darren Fichardt at Irish Open at Fota Island. At this time Tim Barter would come in as coach and work on a few things with inevitable success to come. After losing European Tour card in 2018 Bland at the age of 46 would go back to 2019 Challenge Tour Q School win his playing rights and finish the season with a resurgence in form with 4 2nd placed finishes, a 3rd and a 4th in that season. Just before the strange year which was 2020 at the end of the year he would finish T2nd in South Africa behind Bezuidenhout at Leopard Creek which would be the start of the best season of his career to come which would include the dramatic & emotional victory at the Betfred British Masters at The Belfry where Richard beat Guido Migliozzi in a playoff to win at the 478th time of asking on European Tour in so becoming the oldest first time Euro Tour winner at aged 48. We very much enjoyed speaking with Richard and was a privilege to have him on to discuss the emotional victory at The Belfry. Enjoy everyone!

    In this special episode of Chasing Pars Podcast Craig & Jamie are joined by current European Tour (now DP World Tour) Professional player Wil Besseling. We firstly like to thank Wil for coming on the podcast after his 2 weeks trip to South Africa got cancelled due to the newly Red Zoned South African travel restrictions we are extremely grateful. In probably one of the most open & honest player interviews we have done so far Wil describes his career in the game in his own words from winning Dutch Amateur Match Play Championship as a 15 year old in 2001 to competing in European Amateur Team Championship in 2003 & 2005 as well as being a part of the 2004 & 2006 Eisenhower Trophy sides representing The Netherlands along with Joost Luiten & Tim Sluiter where Wil would go on to finish 3rd in the Individual element in 2004 & help The Netherlands win the 2006 Eisenhower Trophy one of the most prestigious trophies in Amateur Golf. In 2007 in only his 2nd event as as a Professional Golfer Wil would go on to win on EDP Tour (Developmental) in Spain. Wil gives his assessment to his great breakout year on Challenge Tour in 2008 qualifying late for Colombia Masters to eventually winning the tournament by 7 shots, which to this date remains his biggest win of his career so far. We also get a mightily honest take from Wil about losing his early Coach/Mentor who for many years he struggled to replace and struggled for a few years as a result. In 2012 we get a mini resurgence with better form picking up and we get a heart warming story into the rise and at times hard to listen to injury decline of close friend Kristoffer Broberg. Fast forward to 2020 in the new strange world brought on by COVID-19 this now sees Besseling get more starts on the European Tour and as a result has a really good campaign which gave him full playing rights into season 2021 and beyond. This is one hell of an insight into the extreme highs & the extreme lows into the life of Professional Golfer. Wil that was a pleasure to interview you! Myself & Jamie wish you all the best luck in the world with Season 2021-22 and beyond! Please give us a listen and a follow @ChasingPars_Pod on Twitter & @chasingparspodcast on Instagram. Thank you & enjoy everyone!
