Henrik Bjørnstad (born 7 May 1979) is a retired Norwegian professional golfer.

Bjørnstad was born in Oslo, Norway. He turned professional in 1997.

Bjørnstad became the first Norwegian on the PGA Tour when he qualified with a tied 13th place finish at the 2005 PGA Tour Qualifying Tournament. He previously played on the European Tour in 1999 and from 2001 to 2004.

The first season on the PGA Tour resulted in 1 top 10 finish and 17 cuts made in 31 starts.[1] This gave him a 152nd place on the PGA Tour Money list.[2]

In 2007 to 2009 Bjørnstad played on the U.S.-based Nationwide Tour. In 2009, Bjørnstad secured his playing rights on the PGA Tour for the second time by finishing within the top 25 on the money list. His final position was 18th.[3] However, having again finished outside the top-150 on the PGA Tour money list, he was reported at the end of 2010 as saying he was quitting professional golf.[4]

Bjørnstad resides in Palm Beach Gardens, Florida.[5]
