Niclas’ first amateur victory was in 1992 when he won the Swedish Amateur championship. He didn’t stay an amateur long after this, turning professional the next year. He began making a name for himself straight away - winning the Swedish Professional championship and three events in the European Challenge Tour the same year. In 1996, he finished top in the European Tour Qualifying School, thus qualifying for the PGA Tour the following year. He continued to play both the PGA tour and the European tour until 1998. He managed to gain another victory in the Daewoo Warsaw Golf Open, part of the European Challenge Tour in 1999, but after a bad run on the PGA Tour the same year, Niclas decided to concentrate more on his European Tour events. In 2000 he won the Madeira Island Open and brilliant play throughout 2001 lead him to finish tenth on the European Order of Merit. The same year, he came second to the American David Duval in the Open Championship, a performance that saw him make the victorious 2002 Ryder Cup Team. Things went quiet for a few years after this but in 2005 he came back with a bang! Over the following 2 seasons he won the Holden New Zealand Open, the Deutsche Bank Players’ Championship of Europe, the Open de Espana and the Mallorca Classic, leading him to finish 13th and 15th on the Order of Merit respectively. In 2007, he finished first in the BMW International Open, and was a member of the winning European Royal Trophy team. The same year he finished 4th at the US Open, closely following Tiger Woods, Jim Furyk and the 2007 winner Angel Cabrera. His best finish of the 2009 season so far came at the Celtic Manor Welsh Open. A final round 66 saw him charge through the field, eventually taking the runners’ up place.

Niclas Fasth Tournament History
2008 Arnold Palmer Invitational
13-16 March - Arnold Palmer Invitational - Bay Hill Club and Lodge. In typical Tiger fashion, the world #1 sank a 24-foot putt on the 72nd hole at Bay Hill for his fifth consecutive win, much to the annoyance of Bart Bryant who was looking for his first win since 2005. This was his biggest challenge since this streak began 7 months ago, Woods outlasted 45-year-old Bart Bryant and won with a birdie putt on the 72nd hole for the first time in 7 years. He turned and slammed his cap to the ground, letting out a roar to celebrate his 64th career victory, tying Ben Hogan at #3 on the PGA Tour career list.
