Bartender Happy is not received in Finland, the kind of appreciation and attention, which should be over the years, earned, write Joonas Partanen.Bartender Happy is Finland's most successful golfer. On Thursday he announced his career end. epa/aop

the Bartender Glad to release a career for wrapping wasn't any kind of surprise.

Brands have been in the air throughout the beginning of the year, because at the same time when colleagues have been banging the little white ball, Happy is focused on the holidays including Mauritius and Austria. He is a water sport, snow snowboarding, and spent a lot of quality time with his family.


Glad to do just that. I'm guessing that the decision to terminate has been smoldering in the mind for longer, but break the species must confirm the decision.


. Although golf can prosper grew up in the age and species of the nature belonging to the rise and fall you Cheerful the last four of the season don't promise much.

Rahankaan because he doesn't need to play. Glad to have made the European tour prize money of nearly eight million. He has also been a long-term and reportedly lucrative cooperation agreements, inter alia with the Plane.

Happy talk was over five years ago, about how family is important to him, and he wants to spend more time with them. Children are children only for a limited time, so the idea that the year goes back more than half of the world, certainly not attractive.


Glad to win the 2014 European tour hole game of the championship, listed on the all time best Finnish major-investment (7:p PGA-championship tournament) and the pain of the world list at # 37.

No other English man the player has not gotten so far, nowhere near.


. He was our country's number one player for nearly 20 years. When Glad won the 2000 British Amateurin, it opened the door major in. Lahti's head, according to the legendary of The Open as well as the legendary master in the Augusta National field. After that it was time to move on to the pros.

Although Happy got the idea for his flying start by finishing The open at the ninth summer of 2001, all did not proceed ruusuisa. In 2005, he fell on the European tour.

Then finn showed for the first time stamina and get back in the limelight. In 2007 came the first of two wins on the European tour, until there was again a downturn and stationary pedaling.

. Happy eyes back and he said he was tired of kiertuejyrä role. He said he was willing to upset your own its top to get at the risk of everything falling apart.

In 2011, the sick leave after the Happy managed. He rose markedly over the mid to greater prosperity in more than 10 years after he punched through.

It was a tough thing and the great prize uncompromising work. Even Augusta hard to open when the door opened yet another time in April 2015.

Finland has a lot of golf enthusiasts, but a large audience of racing golf is a foreign world. the Bartender Happy is definitely one of the 2000-century of the toughest Finnish sports which all species into account. He has not received in Finland, that appreciation, which would be global and truly competitive sport achievements on behalf of earned. Glad to have missed the distant, which partly relates to his personality, too .

I can't claim to know my Joy, although I've interviewed him several times. Over the years, however, formed – also know him through the image, that Happy is one's own way, a strong own vision confident type. Certain things and values are important, other not so much matter. Is your credit people and then all the others.

Glad to not suck-up or kiss-ass, but always by himself.



Nieminen after the ATP tour has been a quiet, if Henri Kontinen doubles success doesn't count. And many finns are about as interested as a Cape, and singles.

Golf is not left Happy after a great vacuum. Mikko Korhonen to break last year's world list among a hundred, a European tour winner and the history of the second Finnish man, major-contest participant. Korhonen is just less than a year the joy of the younger, so a long career at the top he again barely makes it, but a few years Korhonen can chase even Happy individual achievements.

Korhonen in addition to the European tour to play three more Finnish. Tapio Pulkkanen, Kim Birch and Kalle Ranger have roughly a decade of Joy and Korhonen younger. They have time and opportunities even what. I personally believe, particularly Birch are possibly it, which can even exceeds part Glad to achievements. Easy it's not going to be, but Birch is Happy-like accuracy and hard heads.
