Personal and Academic Information

Philippe is an 19-year old boy who grew up in Kriens, Switzerland. Philippe is a person who has an interest for sports ever since he was a small boy. Although golf is his favorite sport, he is also active in other sports, such as tennis and skiing. 

Philippe obtained his high school diploma (Eidgenössische Matura, highest high school degree you can achieve in Switzerland) in the spring of 2012 and wants to enroll in college in the fall of 2013. He is scheduled to take his SAT and TOEFL test in December 2012.

Athletic Information

He came in contact with the golf sport at the age of 11 and soon his talents were recognized. During his junior career Philippe played many national junior tournaments where he could compare his game with the best juniors. 

By the end of 2010 he was introduced to his coach, Gary Hanham, when he joined a regional junior team called Junioren Golf Zentralschweiz. At the end of 2011 he changed his swing in order to get more consistent. 

This had impact on his results in 2012 specially in combination with his final exams in June. 

In February 2013, Philippe will take part in Jonathan Wallet’s (coach of David Howell) elite golf academy in Spain for one month. He will be practicing with some of the best players in order to take his game to the next level.
