Søren Hansen

Søren Hansen, who became only the second Dane to play in the Ryder Cup when he made the team for Valhalla in 2008, isn't afraid of doing things the hard way; or the dramatic way. He earned his place on the PGA European Tour via the Challenge Tour and, when he captured his first tour title, in the Irish Open at Fota Island in 2002, he got into a four-man play-off only by eagling the 72nd hole. Since then, Hansen has developed into one of the most consistent players in Europe, exemplified by the way he played his way onto Nick Faldo's team for Valhalla in 2008 when he recorded no fewer than 12 top-15 finishes on tour.
