    Born in Sweden in 1957, Lingmerth went on to play college golf in America, where he attended first the University of West Florida and then the University of Arkansas. While at college he was two time All-American.  After turning professional in 2010, Lingmerth began playing on the Web.com Tour the following year. While playing on this tour he experienced some level of success, achieving two third place finishes and five finishes in the Top 10. Despite this he failed to secure his PGA Tour card, either by his placing on the money list, or through qualifying school, where he was unsuccessful. In 2012 Lingmerth won his first event on the Web.com Tour, at the Neediest Kids Championship. He ended that season by finishing in 10th place on the money list, which meant that he earned his card for the PGA Tour for the following season.

    Lingmerth’s first season on the PGA Tour was reasonably successful. He finished in joint second place at both the Humana Challenge and the Players Championship. At the end of the season Lingmerth finished in 75th place on the money list and retained his Tour card for the following season. He was less successful in 2014, and finished the season in 134th place on the money list, losing his place on the Tour, which he then went on to regain. At the Memorial Tournament in 2015, Lingmerth earned his first PGA Tour win.
    Lingmerth isn’t the only member of his family to be involved in sport. His uncle, Goran Lingmerth, was once a player for the Cleveland Browns.

    As of the end of 2014, Lingmerth had achieved one win on the PGA Tour, amassing total prize money of $2,434,770.
