Carl Pettersson Biography

Carl Pettersson was born in Gothenburg, Sweden on 29th August 1977. His father was a Volvo executive and his job entailed international transfers. Consequently, from age of ten to fourteen he lived in England and then spent his last two high school years in the US at Grimsley High School in Greensboro, North Carolina. He went on to attend North Carolina State University. After winning the European Amateur in 2000, Pettersson turned professional.

In his first year as a professional Pettersson won a European Tour card at the 2000 Qualifying School. He had his first victory on the European Tour at the 2002 Algarve Open de Portugal. In late 2002 he won a place on the U.S. based PGA Tour at Qualifying School and he has played mainly on the PGA Tour since.

Pettersson's first PGA Tour title was the 2005 Chrysler Championship, where he became the third Swede to win on the PGA Tour after Jesper Parnevik and Gabriel Hjertstedt. He has featured in the top fifty of the Official World Golf Rankings.

In June 2006, Pettersson won his second PGA Tour title - the Memorial Tournament at Muirfield Village. He finished at twelve under par, two strokes ahead of the field.

In August 2008, Pettersson holed a closing 12 inch putt for a two stroke victory in his adopted hometown of Greensboro to win the Wyndham Championship.

In July 2010, Pettersson won his 4th PGA Tour event at the RBC Canadian Open by 1 stroke over Dean Wilson. Pettersson made a 9' par putt on Friday to make the cut. He shot 60 on Saturday and a birdie putt for 59 lipped out on 18, which put him in the final pairing on Sunday. He shot 67 on Sunday to win by 1.
