Pernilla Lindberg (born 13 July 1986) is a Swedish professional golfer on the U.S.-based LPGA Tour and the Ladies European Tour. Her only professional win to date came at the ANA Inspiration, a major championship, in April 2018.
Lindberg played college golf in the United States at Oklahoma State University in Stillwater, and graduated in May 2009 with a bachelor's degree in international business. She joined the Duramed Futures Tour in June 2009 and qualified at the end of the year for both the LPGA Tour and the LET for 2010. Lindberg played on Sweden's winning Espirito Santo Trophy team in 2008. As a youth in Sweden, she was also an alpine ski racer.
Lindberg won the ANA Inspiration, a major championship, in 2018 for her first professional win. She prevailed in a sudden-death playoff over Inbee Park and Jennifer Song, which extended to eight holes. Despite holding a three-shot lead after 54 holes, Lindberg shot 71 in the final round. In the final pairing, she birdied the 72nd hole to finish at 273 (−15), tied with Park and Song. In the playoff, Song was eliminated on the third extra hole when Park and Lindberg both birdied. After another try, the remaining two parred the hole and play was suspended due to darkness. On Monday morning, the playoff resumed on the 10th hole, then went to 17 and back to 18. Still tied after seven extra holes, the players returned to #10, where Lindberg sank a thirty-foot (9 m) birdie putt, while Park missed hers from twenty feet (6 m). The victory boosted Lindberg′s world ranking 61 places, from 95 to a career-best 34.
