Mikael Lundberg (born 13 August 1973) is a Swedish professional golfer who currently plays on the European Tour.

Lundberg was born in Helsingborg, Sweden. He represented Sweden in the 1994 Eisenhower Trophy and turned professional in 1995. He spent several years on the developmental Challenge Tour, where he was victorious in the 1997 Himmerland Open, and won a place on the main European Tour via a fourth-place finish on the 2000 Challenge Tour Rankings. After two steady seasons on tour, a 137th-place finish on the 2003 Order of Merit cost him his European Tour card and he returned to the Challenge Tour in 2004.

Lundberg won back his place on the European Tour by winning the 2005 Cadillac Russian Open, which was an official money event on both tours, but finished outside the top 150 on the 2006 Order of Merit, and returned to the Challenge Tour the next season. Another top ten finish on the Challenge Tour rankings in 2007 saw him regain his European Tour card for 2008, when he won the Russian Open for the second time, giving him a two-year exemption on the main tour.

A difficult 2016 cost Lundberg a spot on a major tour and in 2017, he was playing on the third-tier Nordic Golf League, where he won Lumine Lakes Open.
