The 24-year-old Dane has won once on the Ladies European Tour and once on the Symetra Tour, the LPGA's developmental circuit.

Q Best golf shot you've seen?

A I played with Amy Yang twice last year and she holed out twice. It's always good shots when you hole out. There are a lot of good shots being played every day, I can't choose one.

Q Greatest athlete in the world?

A Everyone's probably going to say this but obviously Tiger Woods. I think Serena Williams is great too, and so is Caroline Wozniacki, the Danish tennis player. She's getting up there. They're good at their sports but they're doing a lot more than that. They do different things like helping kids out.

Q What did you buy with your first serious pay cheque?

A I bought an apartment back in Denmark last year. But I'd also like to buy a nice watch soon, I haven't thought about the brand yet.

Q Who do you think is the most intimidating player on tour?

A Everybody's nice out here once you get to know them. But I think probably Michelle Wie. When you first see her with her parents and all her coaches walking around, she can seem really intimidating. But then again, she's really nice when you get to know her.

Q Favourite female athlete?

A Serena Williams. She's a black athlete who made it to the top. She's a good role model, not just in tennis but also in women's sports.

Q No. 1 golf tip for amateurs?

A Stay patient. If you're playing badly today, remember that tomorrow is a new day. Golf is a weird game, anything can happen. So just be patient and work hard.
