Michael Jonzon’s career as a professional golfer started in 1991 when he turned pro. Born on April 21, 1972 in Skara, Sweden, Jonzon spent a majority of his career playing in the European Tour and the Challenge Tour. Titles won in the European tour include the 1997 Portuguese Open and the 2009 Castelló Masters Costa Azahar. He has two wins in the Challenge Tour, the 2003 Galeria Kauthof Pokal Challenge and the Rolex Trophy.
He has also garnered titles in several lower professional events. These include the 1991 Sundvall Open, at the Swedish Mini Tour, the 1994 Kinnaborg Open, the 1997 Open Novotel Perrier and the 2006 Rosen Open.
His most recent win was in Spain at the 2009 Castello Masters held at the Club de Campo del Mediterraneo, his second tour victory. The 18-foot birdie which broke the three way tie garnered the 39-year-old golfer the £307,000 money prize. This is his second victory following the 1997 win at the Portuguese Open, a win that signified the end of a twelve-year drought for the Swedish golfer. Before this win the Swede was ranked at 482nd in the world and led the game for the remaining part of the day with a single lead shot. The win also ensures that Jonzon gets to keep his tour card, which the Swede has been in danger of losing prior to this victory. He has not played in the Masters, in the US Open or in the PGA championship.
Jonzon currently resides in Skovde, Sweden.
