Carl Richard Stanley Johnson (born 15 October 1976) is a Swedish professional golfer.

Johnson was born in Stockholm.[1] His paternal grandfather is an American from New Jersey who settled in Sweden and married a Swede.[2] Johnson played on the European Tour and won the ANZ Championship in 2002.

Johnson joined the PGA Tour in 2003 after successfully negotiating qualifying school. He has managed to gain at least partial status on the tour every year since. He placed in the top 50 of the money list in 2006. He earned his card for the 2008 PGA Tour season at the 2007 PGA Tour Qualifying Tournament. He won his first title in 2008, the U.S. Bank Championship in Milwaukee,[2] but has not had much further PGA Tour success. Johnson won the Scandinavian Masters in 2010 on the European Tour. In 2016, Johnson earned a European Tour card through Q School.

Johnson was formerly a pro skateboarder.[3] He also played handball and tennis in his youth.[2]

Johnson resides in Jupiter, Florida.[1]
