Suzann "Tutta" Pettersen has been leading the field in one of the World´s largest individual sports for 20 years. In Solheim Cup in 2019 she made the deciding put for Europe against USA and ended her career with a great comeback. She had just become a mother, and it had been over 20 months since she last prepared for and played a great tournament. Still, she was again the best when it mattered the most. Best under maximum pressure.
In the course of her Golfing Career, Suzann Pettersen achieved 15 individual victories in the LPGA-tour, and two Major titles. She was ranked in the top ten (mostly in the top 5) of the World ranking of Golf for 436 weeks and has represented Europe nine times in Solheim Cup. In 2020 she received The Honorary Award at the Norwegian Athletics Gala, and she is a lifetime ambassador for NIKE.
In 2012 she played her very best Golf and was at the hight of her career. She was ranked second in the World ranking and was just about to take the final step up to the top. Instead, she was once again injured, an injury that could have stopped her from playing professional Golf. And still she managed to do a comeback. What is it that makes her so mentally strong that she could return to the top again and again, and preform on a high level in Golf for 20 years?
In this book the extreme winner tells the stories about the games on an international top level, and life off the Golf course.
Suzann is probably the greatest athlete ever to come out of Norway. I rank her at the top, as we have not seen anyone else who has been even close to her achievements in an individual World Sport.
