Born on a golf course – the Edberg family hotel at Jönköping boasts two layouts – he started playing the game aged three with his father, Stefan, and brother, Hans. Turned professional in 1997 and first entered the Qualifying School in 1998, but it was not until 2004 that he achieved success for the first time.
Had three massive performances in the second half of the 2015 season, first taking fourth place at the Omega European Masters, then finishing runner-up at the D+D REAL Czech Masters before finishing third at the Porsche European Open. That form was reminiscent of 2007 and 2008, the year he just missed out on winning the SAS Masters and the Bank of Austria Golf Open. During the winter in Sweden he enjoys playing indoor floorball.
