Jesper Parnevik Biography

Jesper Parnevik was born in Stockholm, Sweden on the 7th March 1965. His father was the Swedish entertainer Bo Parnevik. At age 15, Parnevik spent 10 days in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina getting a sense of life in the United States. He moved to Palm Beach County, Florida to attended Palm Beach Junior College in Lake Worth on a golf scholarship.He turned professional in 1986 at the age of 21.

In his early years Parnevik scored four wins on the European Tour before joining the PGA Tour in the mid-90s. Between 1998 and 2001 he won five events on the PGA Tour. His playing career also includes three Ryder Cup appearances - in 1997, 1999, and 2002. He has twice been a runner-up in The Open ? in 1994 and 1997. His career best world ranking of seventh, which he attained in May 2000, was the highest world ranking achieved by a Swedish golfer until Henrik Stenson reached the top five in February 2007.

In late 2000, Parnevik underwent hip surgery after speaking with Greg Norman who had undergone similar surgery.

Parnevik finished second in the Valero Texas Open in October 2007, losing to Justin Leonard in a playoff. In 2009, after a tie for 17th finish at the SAS Masters in Sweden, Parnevik underwent further hip surgery in Vail, Colorado, United States which cut short his 2009 season on the PGA Tour.

In 2010, Parnevik missed cuts in his first three tournaments and had to withdraw again after a first round 68 at the Northern Trust Open because of an ailing back. He had emergency surgery where it was discovered that he had a broken lumbar vertebrae that might be career ending. He is currently seeking advice from a physiotherapist.
