Emily Kristine Pedersen: Player Profile

 

Who is Emily Kristine Pedersen?

Emily Kristine Pedersen is one of the leading Danes in the game, and the Order of Merit Winner on the Ladies European Tour in 2020.

The Dane had a solid amateur career, winning the Spanish Ladies Amateur, British Ladies Amateur and the International European Ladies Amateur Championship, among several other competition victories. She then turned professional in 2015, and secured her first LET title later that year, with a win at the Hero Women’s Indian Open.

The 2020 season was an amazing one for Pedersen, as she won five times, four of which came on the Ladies European Tour. Three of those came in three successive weeks as she became the first woman in 30 years to do so on the LET. She won twice in Saudi Arabia, before winning the Andalucia Costa Del Sol Open de Espana. Those wins saw her secure the Order of Merit on the Ladies European Tour.

The 2023 edition of the Solheim Cup will see Pedersen make her third appearance for Team Europe in the competition. She made her debut in 2017 where she failed to score a point in three matches. However, four years on, she gained three points in a winning European cause, as the team retained the trophy on American soil.
