Rikard Karlberg

Rikard Karlberg, native from Gothenburg, Sweden, is not only one of the most talented Swedish golfers. He is also a genuine and extremely likeable person who has taken his own road to success through learning his trade by exposing himself to different worlds of golf already at a young age. 

Rikard turned professional in 2006 and claimed his first professional title the same year on the Swedish national tour, Telia Tour. In 2007 he won two more titles on the Telia Tour along with one victory on the Danish national tour. He crowned the year by wining the order of merit on both the Telia Tour and the Challenge Tour satelite tour, Nordic League, earning him full exemption on the Challenge Tour for 2008.

Rikard played on the Challenge Tour for two years before he decided to successfully qualify for the Asian Tour in 2010. In his maiden year on the Asian Tour he claimed two titles, Sail Open and Hero Honda Indian Open, and also tied for a third place finish in the co-sanctioned European Tour event, Barclays Singapore Open. His success in 2010 earned him a third place on the Order of Merit and also the Rookie of the Year honors on the Asian Tour.

In 2014 Rikard crowned his year by reaching one of his long-term goals by securing the ninth card in the Qualifying School for the 2015 European Tour season. It did not take him long to become an European Tour Champion as he won the Italian Open in his debut season.

Rikard also has an impressive amateur career with victories in the Nordic Championship, European Junior Championships and Swedbank Junior Invitational.
