Joakim Backstrom Biography

Joakim Bäckström was born in Umea, Sweden on 16th March 1978.

Having failed to win a place on the European Tour in 2000, Bäckström spent his early career in Sweden on the Telia Tour, where he won the 2001 Gula Sidorna Grand Open and the 2002 Sunbyholm Open. He also picked up five wins in Denmark during 2003 and 2004.

Despite battling back problems throughout his career, Bäckström showed it was no barrier to success when he claimed his maiden European Tour victory in the 2005 Aa St Omer Open, beating England’s Paul Dwyer in a sudden-death play-off. He revealed that the only way to avoid his spinal problems is to keep fit, he does this by playing tennis when he is not on the golf course.

At the end of the 2006 season he avoided a return to the Qualifying School when he finished 108th on the Order of Merit but could not repeat the feat in 2007 as he dropped to 137th before bouncing back by claiming the 13th card at the Qualifying School.
