Biography

Hailing from a family of sporting pedigree – his sister Marlene is also a professional golfer – Hedblom endured a rocky start to his early career, attending the Qualifying School on six consecutive occasions between 1988 and 1993. Won the 1996 Moroccan Open but had to wait 11 years for his second victory, during which time he missed much of the 2002 season after breaking his leg in an ice hockey match. Claimed the 2007 Maybank Malaysian Open, then won his first title on European soil when he clinched the 2009 Johnnie Walker Championship at Gleneagles. It was a just reward for the Swede who lost a play-off – the fourth of his career – the previous week in the KLM Open. The 2010 season failed to match the heights of 2009, with just two top ten finishes contributing to his 89th place in The Race to Dubai. Introduced to golf at the age of six by his father, Olle. Was Swedish Boys champion at 16, and the following year he won the 1987 Doral Junior Classic.
