        Amateur career

        Nordqvist was born in Eskilstuna, Sweden, and had a successful amateur golfer in both Europe and the United States. She was Swedish Junior Player of the Year (2004, 2005), Swedish Amateur of the Year (2005), British Girls' Open Amateur Champion (2005), bronze medallist at the European Championship (2005), runner-up at the British Ladies Amateur (2006 and 2007) and part of the successful Swedish team at the European Team Amateur.

        By the end of her freshman year at Arizona State University in 2007, she was Pac-10 co-champion and was named National Golf Coaches Association (NGCA) Freshman of the Year, Pac-10 Player of the Year and Newcomer of the Year. NGCA First-Team All-American and Academic All-American honors were gained in both 2007 and 2008. She was runner-up at the British Ladies Amateur in 2006 and 2007, and finally won the championship in her third successive final in 2008. She tied for fifth at the 2008 NCAA Championships (won by ASU teammate Azahara Muñoz) and was a member of the victorious Swedish team at the 2008 World Amateur Team Championships for the Espirito Santo Trophy. She made the cut at the Ricoh Women's British Open in both 2007 and 2008 and earned the Smyth Salver for low amateur honours in 2008.

        In December 2008, she tied for 25th at the LPGA Final Qualifying Tournament and turned professional immediately following the final round. In January 2009 she won the Ladies European Tour Final Qualifying School.

        Professional career

        In only her fifth start on the LPGA Tour, Nordqvist won her first professional tournament and major, the 2009 LPGA Championship in Maryland in June. This led to her selection as a captain's pick for the 2009 Solheim Cup. In November, she won the LPGA Tour Championship for her second victory of the season. She was named Rookie of the Year on the LET and finished runner-up to Jiyai Shin for LPGA Rolex Rookie of the Year honors.

        In August 2013, in the 13th Solheim Cup, Nordqvist won her match with Caroline Hedwall with a hole-in-one at the 17th hole, beating Morgan Pressel and Jessica Korda 2&1. This was the first hole-in-one in Solheim Cup history.

        Personal life

        Nordqvist currently lives in Orlando, Florida.
