The two brothers revealed what they would like to adopt from the other’s game. Rasmus, the younger one, said, “I would like Nicolai’s distance. I don’t like to admit it. But that is how it is. He has a bit more power than me. His long irons are a big asset. He hits them long and high. But then again, he only needs them on par 5s. I need them on par 4s.”

He said, “I would like Rasmus’ ability to keep playing well when he gets a chance to win. When he is in contention, he just keeps going. I want that. It is more mental than technical. When he scents blood, he goes for it. I do too, but he has had more success in those situations.”

Gytteyard, where the twins’ love for the sport began, is where they first went when they were less than four-years-old. Sharing amongst them three clubs, the pair showed an instant liking to the sport. When they turned eight, they got their own bags and in the next two years, they were “just about living on the golf course,” according to Rasmus.
