Mikael Sorling Awarded 2020 Christer Lindberg Bowl for his Contributions to Golf2 min read

Posted on: 18th Dec 2020

Former longstanding Chief Executive of the PGA of Sweden and CPG Board member, Mikael Sorling, has been recognised for his significant work, development and vision in shaping professional golf with the 2020 Christer Lindberg Bowl.

Following an established playing career that saw him become the leading amateur for Sweden, Sorling has played an integral role in the development of golf both in his native Sweden and internationally as well.

One of his most significant achievements-the signing of a ground-breaking collaborative agreement between the PGA of Sweden and the Swedish Golf Federation (one of the first of its kind at that time), led to Mikael’s subsequent appointment as Chief Executive of the PGA of Sweden, where he served for 22 years until his retirement in 2019.

This meant thatat the time -along with holding board member positions with the PGAs of Europe and Ryder Cup Europe -he was playing a significant role in shaping the international landscape for Professional golf.

“As a trainee, Christer Lindberg took me under his wing, guided me and taught me so much. To be nominated for this award, that is named after my predecessor is wonderful”commented Sorling.

Chief Executive of the CPG, Ian Randell, commented: “Mikael has been a great ambassador for our sport and can be so proud of the impact that he has had on the development of golf, both domestically in Sweden and internationally through his leadership within the PGAs of Europe and involvement for many years with Ryder Cup Europe. In 2011 his achievements as a PGA Professionalwere recognised with the 5-Star Professional Award and it is fitting that we should now also celebrate his significant contributionswiththis prestigious award.”
