Madelene Sagström (born 13 November 1992) is a Swedish professional golfer.

Sagström played college golf with the LSU Lady Tigers team at Louisiana State University in Baton Rouge, Louisiana.[1] She joined the Symetra Tour 2016 where finished inside the top-5 in her first five starts. After victories at both the Chico Patty Berg Memorial and the Self Regional Healthcare Foundation Classic, Sagström lead the tour's money list race with a wide margin, meaning she all but sealed her spot in the LPGA 2017 rookie class.[2]

With her third win at the Murphy USA El Dorado Shootout, Sagström both secured the top spot on the final Volvik Race for the Card money list and earned a "Battlefield Promotion" to the 2016 LPGA Tour. She had a record breaking Symetra Tour season, became the first player in Tour history to crack $100,000 and $150,000, winning Player of the Year and Rookie of the Year honors. In 14 Symetra Tour starts, Sagström had three wins and 11 top-10 finishes.[3]

In December 2016, Sagström won the Ladies European Tour's Q-School in Morocco, securing membership of the Ladies European Tour for 2017, a requirement to make her eligible for selection in the 2017 Solheim Cup.[4]
