Johan Edfors

An extremely stylish golfer – both in a fashion sense and in the manner in which he plays the game –Edfors made a spectacular impact on the 2006 season which almost allowed him to gatecrash the European team for the Ryder Cup match at The K Club. In only his second full season on tour, the Swede won three times on the PGA European Tour that year – in the TCL Classic, British Masters and Scottish Open – but victories have proven more difficult to acquire since then. Still, Edfors – with over €4 million in career earnings – is a very consistent performer, finishing 32nd in last season’s Race to Dubai standings, while also returning to the winner’s enclosure with success in the Black Mountains Masters on the Asian Tour. He has post Top-10 finishes this season in the Malaysian Open and the Volvo China Open . . . . he is a graduate of the University of Texas, which he attended on a golfing scholarship . . . . is a very keen and accomplished skier.
