More often than not, social media is considered a ‘necessary evil’ by most. Known to be addictive in many ways, people often look to limit their time on any social networking site – Twitter, Instagram, Facebook, and more – so they can detox. The 2021 BMW International Open champion Viktor Hovland has his own take on Twitter, recently revealing why he still does not have an account.

In a small snippet shared by GOLFTV on Twitter, a smiling Hovland ends up sharing why he is not on the popular social media site. “I guess when I was growing up it wasn’t that big in Norway. Like, a lot of my friends growing up did not have Twitter,” he says while talking to the media. “And then I just didn’t get one. I feel like I’d be just lost in it. Just end up sitting there all day, tweeting”. While the clip was shared recently, it is from the August 2018 US Amateur Champion Press Conference.

The clip has been shared multiple times on social media, fans, and anyone who came across the same loving his attitude. “I like this guy,” one fan wrote, while another called the World No. 10 “smart”. Others reacted with gifs and emojis.

Following his Tokyo Olympics performance, Hovland has moved to the #10 spot on the Official World Golf Ranking. The 23-year-old has made history by becoming the first Norwegian golfer to do so. Hovland, who recently became the first Norwegian to win on the European Tour, achieved a T14 finish in the men’s golf competition at Tokyo Olympics 2020.

He even played the US Open but withdrew after an injury. Sand from a divot injured Hovland’s left eye, and made him withdraw for the first time in his career during the second round. He scored 3-over 74 in Round 1, making one birdie while shooting four bogeys.
