Did you know?

Turning professional in 1995, Kjeldsen notched up his first win on the Challenge Tour in the 1997 Finnish Open, before joing the main European Tour in 1998. Four wins on the Tour between 2003 and 2015 all came in Europe, but arguably his most prestigious win came 'down under' at Kingston Heath Golf Club in Melbourne. In partnership with compatriot Thorbjørn Olesen, Kjeldsen rounded off the 2016 season with Denmark's first ever win in the World Cup of Golf.
