Pete Cowen speaking about Henrik
Henrik and I go way back. We have worked together since 2001. He is a hard worker and it has paid off many times. We have been through some tough times but the good times make up for it. It takes balls to be a good golf player and Henrik’s got lots of it. He is a popular guy on tour, and a very good friend of mine. Our families have also gotten very close over the years. He is a devoted family man with other things than golf in his life. He loves having the family with him and when he doesn’t, he is like a bear with a sore head. In the near future we will work harder than ever.
Henrik speaking about Pete Cowen
Man in black. One of the best coaches in the world, if not the best. Likes to keep under the radar. Loves his cup of tea. My coach and friend since 2001.

Philip Barker speaking about Henrik
I have had the pleasure of working with Henrik, his family and team since 2007. He is fully involved with his financial management and we work together on many matters. His eye for detail is hugely impressive and he expects very high standards from everybody that he works with.
As I have got to know Henrik, the character trait that has become ever more apparent is his sense of humour - it is very dry, and sometimes truly wicked!
Henrik speaking about Philip Barker
Solid as a rock. Keeps track of my finances.

Gareth Lord speaking about Henrik
Having started to work with Henrik at the beginning of this year (2013) I was not aware of how devious his sense of humor can be. This is a great thing because so is mine! A harder worker you will not find with a huge attention to detail concerning his golf. His continued hard work can only lead to more successes in the future.
Henrik speaking about Gareth Lord
Gareth or "Lordy" as he is more known as is a great caddie and very hard working. He is fun to be around and we are probably just as crazy but in different ways..............thankfully! It is very important to get along when we spend that much time together on the course. I guess it helped us both that we had some history of knowing each other from the time when Gareth worked for my friend Robert Karlsson and we won the 2008 World Cup together and also played some better-balls in the 2008 Ryder Cup.

RJ Nemer speaking about Henrik
I began working with Henrik in January 2013 after meeting him through another ICON client, Ian Poulter. One thing I love about Henrik is his natural wit... he often has me in tears from laughing so hard.
His attention to detail always impresses me… I can have a quick random conversation with Henrik and a month later he will repeat the exact dialogue back to me.
A true gentleman, he has the perfect combination of humility and competitiveness and is a ton of fun to be around. Simply put, it’s a true joy to work with and for Henrik. I’m excited to see what the future holds.

Torsten Hansson speaking about Henrik
I met Henrik in 1994 when I worked with the Swedish National Team. A young ambitious individual with big dreams for the future. I remember well how Henrik excelled above the others. Not with his technique or physique but for his strong energy. He was what we often call a "bull-head" (stubborn).
I also remember that I, on many occasions, had to try and convince the National Team coaches that here we had a future player. They had other favorites and did not see Henrik's great strength - the desire to be the best. When Henrik then decided to turn pro, we continued to work together and did so for thirteen years. A great journey with big success the first few years. Then during the swing change that Henrik did we met adversity not only from the change itself, but mainly from the surroundings who very clearly expressed to both Henrik and me that he was on the wrong track. However, Henrik was strong enough to resist this negative energy and with his "pig-headedness" worked and worked out of the slump. After a low period things usually go up again and so did Henrik´s journey. Now he began a rise not seen in Swedish golf. Slowly but surely, he passed top 50 in the world and with it he was playing the big tournaments. When we chose to go our separate ways Henrik was the highest ranked Swedish golfer ever. He was now amongst the top ten players in the world. I am grateful to have been part of this journey. To get to follow a player from amateur to one of the best in the world is a privilege, a gratitude and joy that will follow me for the rest of my life.
Henrik speaking about Torsten Hansson
Torsten Hansson is no longer a "blast from the past" and since last summer we work together again. We know each other like a father and son and we go "way back" as they say! It feels like we are on the right track with a lot of things and it feels great to have him back on the team! "Old school" as they would say.............same guys who said "way back" that is!!

Sarah Skonby speaking about Henrik
Henrik likes things to work smoothly. He has got high expectations on people around him but mostly on himself. He takes care of his family and friends in a great way. Henrik loves candy and ice cream and has got a weird sense of humour. Don’t put anything technical in his hands, because if it does not work the way he wants it to, he will most likely break it into pieces.
Henrik speaking about Sarah Skonby
PA since 2008. Organized, on time, wants to get things moving. German efficiency in a Swedish body.

Cornel Driessen speaking about Henrik
I became Henrik's physiotherapist and physical conditioning coach in December 2011. Starting with Henrik's recovery and rehabilitation from knee surgery at the time, we kicked off the exciting journey of screening and performance enhancement conditioning programs together. The goal was to address all nutritional and physical deficits to optimize Henrik's strength, mobility and stability profiles to the full potential of his golfing capabilities. For this, I am consulting regularly with Henrik's swing coach Pete Cowen as well as his mental coach Torsten Hansson to establish training goals and periodisation.
Henrik speaking about Cornel Driessen
I have worked with Cornel since beginning of 2012 season. We started working just after I had my knee surgery and I am very happy with the progress we have made together. He is very knowledgeable and dedicated to keep my body strong and healthy. Cornel is also a very loyal friend and a great asset on my support team.

Dan Salmonsson speaking about Henrik
I have worked with Henrik since 2000 and it has been a very interesting and exciting journey in both the prosperity and adversity. Henrik is an extremely generous and humorous person. He is also rightly a demanding person for himself and those around. Always full of fun, frolic, full of tenacity and a competitive spirit out of the ordinary. He is one of the few who has cracked tennis racquets, both during and after the same tennis match. It is always with pleasure that I share time with Henrik, both in private and professional.
Henrik speaking about Dan Salmonsson
Physio/trainer but also a private friend. Hell of a runner and once a decent tennis player, still beats me but it says more about his game than mine.
