When I was 10 my dad took me to the small bowlingcenter (8 lanes) in Varberg, at that time I was into a lot of sports such as soccer, floorball, shooting darts and so on. From age of 15 I more or less only focused on bowling and after school I worked couple years as a salesman for office furnitures until I got a chance to work on my bowling even more and start travel the world. So for a little more then 10 years now I’ve been fortunate to do what I love to do most, bowl!
I’ve always wanted to get better and I try hard to learn more things about this game every time I’m out on the lanes and not only out on the lanes, today you can learn a lot online to. Balls, oil patterns, videos and much more info is out there and the more you know the better chance you have to make the right choices on the lanes!
They call my LuckyLarsen and its far from every time I feel that way when I bowl but when I get home to my wonder full family I understand what people mean by lucky!! I’m blessed with two beautiful daughters (Isabella and Emilia) and they have the world best mum (Diana), leaving them at home is the hardest part about being a professional bowler.
The few times I have the chance I like to play golf (hcp 14), it’s really relaxing to get out on a nice golf course when you spend so much time inside bowlingcenters!
