Born in Särö, Sweden, Sophie Gustafson is a professional golfer who now calls South Walton home.
Of course, when you travel around the world as much as Sophie does, it’s probably hard to call any place home. But when not jet-setting across the globe, Sophie can be found here on 30A fishing, standup paddle boarding, and even enjoying live music at Williams Backyard Boogie… and, of course, playing golf.
Sophie is a member of the U.S. based LPGA Tour and is also a life member of the Ladies European Tour. Sophie has five LPGA and 21 international wins under her belt, with her career earnings topping $6.1 million.
After a lifelong battle with a challenging stutter, Sophie gave her first TV interview to the Golf Channel just prior to the 2011 Solheim Cup. She was later honored with the 2012 Heather Farr Perseverance Award by the LPGA membership, and with the Ben Hogan Award from the Golf Writers Association of America.
