Who Is Henrik Stenson's Wife?

Major champion and five-time Ryder Cup player Henrik Stenson has had an immensely successful career to date.

Emma Lofgren, Stenson's wife has been present for a large majority of his time on Tour. Get to know her in the piece below.

Who Is Henrik Stenson's Wife?

Henrik Stenson is married to fellow Swede Emma Lofgren, although they grew up in very different parts of the country. Stenson is from Gothenburg which is at the bottom of the country whereas Lofgren grew up in the northern part of Sweden.

The pair met at the University of South Carolina where Lofgren was studying Public Relations and Media whilst also playing for the golf team. Stenson on the other hand was not a student there but according to his website, Puggy Blackmon, the head of South Carolina's golf programme, let Stenson practice with the university team. This meant the pair spent a lot of time together.

Lofgren, after university, became a teaching pro at Barsebäck Golf and Country Club for a few years before eventually quitting. She said; “Golf is such a big part of your life, but it’s a job. Eventually you have to make life work.”

The pair eventually got married in 2006 in Dubai which is where they lived until they moved to the United States.

They have three children together called Lisa who was born in 2007, Karl (2010), and Alice (2014).

In their spare time they often travel back to Sweden and love to ski. Lofgren in particular came from a sporting family and was a very strong alpine skier when she was younger.
