Norwegian professional golfer Suzann “Tutta” Pettersen may have struggled with back pain earlier this season, but she’s back on track. This past weekend, she took second place at the Ricoh Women’s British Open. American Mo Martin edged Pettersen out by one stroke. Check out this video of Pettersen commenting on her performance.
This month, Pettersen graces the July cover of Viking magazine. Turn to page 15 to see our interview with her. She started playing golf at the age of 6 in Oslo and turned professional in 2000. The article also features a lot of wonderful information on the best places to golf in Norway, including the course Pettersen grew up playing on—Oslo Golf Club Bogstad.
Next month, Pettersen will be competing in the United States and Canada. Be sure to keep an eye on her competition schedule and follow her on Twitter for all the latest updates.
