Jesper Parnevik
Parnevik teamed up well with Garcia in 1999
Parnevik is one of the most colourful players in world golf.

He turned professional in 1986 and has enjoyed a steady rise to the top. He is yet to win a Major, but has picked up various trophies, including two Scandinavian Open titles.

His big moment came in 1997 when he qualified for Valderrama where his win in the fourballs with Per-Ulrik Johansson and two halves helped Europe to success.

Two years later, he and Garcia won three out of four of their games and halved the other, but the end result was not so good for the Swede.
