Suzann Pettersen has not let her country down as far as her performance in golf is concerned. Though a Norwegian professional golfer, Suzzan mainly plays on US based LPGA Tours. In seven years time, Suzzana managed to land the number two spot in female golf in the whole world, the highest ranking she has ever achieved in her whole career.
Suzann was not only successful as a professional golfer; she was also quite successful as an amateur golfer. Before turning pro in the year 2000, she was the Norwegian Amateur Champion five times. She also represented her home country in the World Amateur Team Championship and became the victor in her second appearance. Suzzana was also Europe’s representative in the Junior Ryder Cup Matches on 1997 and 1999.
Suzzan is mostly known for her performance and success in the Ladies European Tournament. In her debut year as a professional golfer on 2000, she finished 11th place in the LET Qualifying School. In her 2001 rookie season, she managed to play in ten events. In her second start, she managed to win the French Open, beating Becky Morgan. For her remarkable performance, she was named LET Rookie of the Year.
Suzzana didn’t start off the following year, 2002, quite as well. She started the season with a loss from a match against Karrie Webb. Despite the loss, Suzann still managed to land a place in European team for Solheim Cup on 2002. In the same year, Suzann was able to make the cut for the LPGA Final Qualifying Tournament which earned her an exempt status for the LPGA season in 2003. Her best finish on her LPGA season was in third place. In 2003, Suzzan was picked again to join the European team for the Solheim Cup.
The years 2004 and 2005 were a slow one for Suzann’s career. In 2004, she was recovering from an elbow injury and in the following year she experienced a debilitating back injury. 2006 was a better year for Suzann, where she played five times on the LET and had three top ten finishes on the LPGA Tour. Perhaps the year 2007 was the most memorable for Suzann because it was during this year that she won the 2007 Michelob ULTRA Open, making her the first Norwegian to win an LPGA title.
Pettersen currently has 11 professional victories, with 6 of these in the LPGA Tour.
