My story

Joakim Bjorkman is a short stature professional golfplayer and he started to play golf at age of 11 and no one had thought a golfplayer like Joakim become such a good talent because of his conditions. Only himself believed what he can do with a golfball. Joakim is born with a diagnose acondroplasi, that’s mean he going to be short rest of his life, but that’s nothing he is concerned about at all.

A year later ’06, he won his first big victory at the European Championship in Finland (Second category). 2011 in august won team Sweden the Team World Championship in Malmo, Sweden.
