Identical twin brother Nicolai has played in two Open Championships – the first after capturing the European amateur title in 2018 – but this is the debut of Rasmus, who with three DP World Tour titles leads the sibling rivalry by one.
Having been teammates in Denmark’s winning of the 2018 Eisenhower Trophy World Amateur Team Championship, they achieved a remarkable double in September 2021.
After turning professional, he had to wait until only his fifth event on the main circuit to taste success. It came at the 2019 AfrAsia Bank Mauritius Open and at 18 years and 271 days, he was the circuit’s third youngest winner behind Matteo Manassero and Danny Lee.
The following season he added the ISPS Handa UK Championship and then, in 2021, he lifted the Omega European Masters. Seven days later, Nicolai enjoyed his first win at DS Automobiles Italian Open, the first time in Tour history that brothers had won in successive weeks.
Both have reached the game’s top 70 and both now have their sights on a Ryder Cup debut in September, having represented Europe in the junior version in 2018.
