Lena Hagman has found a unique way of telling stories that are not usually told though they are about the utter joy we all can sense whenever we meet someone who can share the splendor of being who we are, in an activity that brings every aspect of our personalities out in the open, as during a round of golf. The author dedicates her book to the Ailsa Golf Course, which has a very special place in her heart. Several of her close encounters described in the book have taken place at Turnberry, on the Ailsa course on the western shore of Scotland. Ailsa is the historic links championship course where the Open Championship has been held four times.
Lena Hagman has written her first book, Close Encounters on a Golf Club, which was first published by Life Publications in 2012. Lena Hagman has long experience as macroeconomist in different government authorities and private organisations in Sweden. She is well known in Sweden as chief economist, making her independent analysis and forecasts. Her passion for writing about other interests than economics is not yet known to many in Sweden, like writing about her experience from the game of golf and the unique ways it can lead to memories and friends for life, which is what she describes in her first book. Lena lives in the Swedish capital, Stockholm, and works as chief economist.
