With a last name like “Svensson,” you would be forgiven to think the PGA Tour’s latest winner came from a Scandinavian country. Not exactly, although his hometown of Surrey, British Columbia, oftentimes has the same winter weather. He always excelled at golf, winning the Canadian Boys Junior Championship in 2012.

Svensson matriculated at Barry University in Miami, Florida, where he once again excelled. He won nine tournaments, was twice the NCAA Division II individual champion, and was a first-team All-American. He turned professional in 2015, and in 2018 won on what is now the Korn Ferry Tour. He earned his PGA Tour card for 2019 but lost it, only to regain it for the 2021-22 season.

His victory in November’s RSM Classic in Georgia is a continuation of his rise in golf. Svensson’s career has been on a steady upward trend ever since he first picked up a club. It is likely this trend will continue for years to come.
