Nicolai Hojgaard's reputation has been growing rapidly over the last couple of years and his career only looks to be heading in one direction.
The Dane is a two-time winner on the DP World Tour and he produced his best finish at a Major in 2023, ending up tied-23rd at The Open.
Nicolai's twin brother Rasmus is also a professional golfer and the latter has enjoyed slightly more success, winning four times on the DP World Tour.

Hojgaard was born in Billund, Denmark and he currently resides in Aarhus, the second-largest city in the country.
Having turned professional in 2019, Hojgaard has spent the majority of his career on the DP World Tour and that is where the bulk of his earnings have come from.
The Dane has accrued around £2.54m on the European circuit but he has also amassed in excess of $1m on the PGA Tour.
Hojgaard has special temporary membership on the PGA Tour and his biggest payday on the US circuit came at the 2023 Corales Puntacana Championship, where he was second and received a cheque for $414,200.
Hojgaard's net worth is reported to be around $5 million, with the majority of that coming through DP World Tour earnings.
Hojgaard has Lee Warne, who used to be a greenkeeper at BMW PGA Championship venue Wentworth, on his bag.
Warne brings plenty of experience, having also caddied for Swedish ace Alex Noren from the summer of 2016 until they decided to part ways.
With Warne as his caddie, Noren won the 2017 BMW at Wentworth and the 2018 Open de France at Le Golf National, the venue for the 2018 Ryder Cup which the Swede played in.
Hojgaard predominantly uses Callaway clubs, with his Odyssey Toulon Design Chicago putter the different make in the bag, albeit that brand is a subsidiary of his main sponsor.
The Dane has a Callaway Paradym Triple Diamond driver with 10.5° loft, a Rogue ST Triple Diamond 3-wood with 16.5° loft and an X21 Utility Iron with 20 degrees
For irons he uses Callaway Apex MB, while the wedges are Jaws Raw (50°) and Jaws Full Toe (56° & 60°).
Hojgaard's ball of choice is the Callaway Chrome Soft X.
Hojgaard is yet to feature in the Ryder Cup but he will be making his debut at Marco Simone Golf Club this year, a course he won the Italian Open at in 2021.
The 22-year-old was part of Denmark's winning side at the 2018 Eisenhower Trophy, while he also represented Continental Europe in the 2023 Hero Cup triumph.
Hojgaard was undefeated in his four Hero Cup matches, winning three and halving one.
Hojgaard will next tee it up at this week's Ryder Cup in Rome.
