Swedish Golfer Fredrik Andersson’s Cancer Caused His Death
Official sources sadly announced that Swedish European Tour winner Fredrik Andersson’s cancer caused his passing on Sunday (October 24, 2021) at the age of 49. May he rest in power.
The heartbreaking news has been confirmed in a statement posted on Instagram by the European Tour, writing, “We are deeply saddened by the death of Fredrik Andersson Hed, a much-loved member of the European Tour family.”
Born in Halmstad in 1972, Fredrik first kicked off playing golf at the age of 10. He came to fame through the European amateur ranks and finally entered the Challenge Tour as a talented amateur golfer. He was awarded the European Young Masters and the Swedish Junior Stroke-Play Championship in 1990.
Also good to know, the star got the 2003 Toyota Championship and added another victory at Le Touquet in 2010; that year which was Fredrik’s best year on tour, he achieved his first European Tour victory at the Italian Open. He placed 22nd in the last money list, supported by a runner-up finish at the BMW PGA Championship.
The Halmstad native also finished tied sixth at the WGC-HSBC Champions, which Ernie Els and Tiger Woods appeared in. Andersson Hed was survived by his wife Anna, whose surname, Hed, he added to his own when they tied the knot in 2004, and children Viggo and Molly.
The news came only a day after we lost another young sports star; women’s Physique Competitor Jennifer Hernandez’s cause of death is still unknown.
