Swedish Golfer of the Year is awarded annually by the Swedish Golf Federation.[1]

The award is individual and awarded since 1966 to the Swedish golfer with the best overall golf performance each year, either in a series of achievements or a single big success. In the assessment the event difficulty, the competition, any surprises and pressing conditions are considered.[2] The jury is made up of player representatives from PGA Sweden, golf journalists, and officials from the Swedish Golf Federation.[3]

Annika Sörenstam has received the award nine times
