The most talented teenage twins in golf

Still only 19 years old Danes Nicolai and Rasmus Hojgaard came on to the European Tour in 2019 after helping Denmark win the Eisenhower Trophy as amateurs. See the welcome home Nicolai got at Billund Airport.

As an amateur Nicolai got to play in the 2018 Open Championship at Carnoustie and on turning professional played well on the Challenge Tour, He was runner up to Sergio Garcia, one shot behind, at the 2019 KLM Open.

Rasmus had outstanding start scoming 5th in the European Tour qualifying tour. He quickly won the 2019 Mauritius Open and followed up with a second win in August 2020 at the ISPS Honda UK Championship after making his major debut at the US Open.

They say they push each other on and aim to play together in the Ryder Cup. When Edouardo and Francesco Molinari played together in the 2010 Ryder Cup in Wales the European fans sang to them “There’s only two Molinaris”. Their Danish brothers surname doesn’t really scan in the same way. But, as having Danish heritage myself, perhaps the lyrics of the Olesen Brothers from Denmark might make their Ryder Cup singalong

Flyv på kærlighedens vinger
Flyve baby flyve
Nå ud til stjernerne ovenfor
rører ved himlen

Held og lykke drenge!
