Kristian Krogh Johannessen Biography – Kristian Krogh Johannessen Wiki
Kristian Krogh Johannessen is a Norwegian professional golfer who has played on the European Tour and the Challenge Tour.
Johannessen turned professional in 2015. He has enjoyed a lot of success on the satellite Nordic Golf League, winning three times on that circuit between 2015 and 2018. He secured a debut season on the European Tour in 2018 after earning the 20th card at Qualifying School Final Stage.
On Sunday, July 3, 2022, Johannessen secured his maiden European Challenge Tour title at the Italian Challenge Open after defeating Denmark’s Oliver Hundebøll in a play-off at Golf Nazionale.
The Norwegian entered the final round two shots off the lead but posted a bogey-free four under par round of 67 to move alongside Hundebøll on 11 under par and force a play-off. Johannessen made par on the first extra hole to defeat Hundebøll, who made a double-bogey after a wayward tee shot.
Johannessen was delighted to pick up his first Challenge Tour title and believed a conservative strategy was key to keeping bogeys off the card in the fourth round.
“It feels amazing. I’m very pleased to get my first win on the Challenge Tour and get it done in a play-off,” he said. “I tried to play sensibly today and not attack all the pins. I focused on hitting the middle of the greens because you could easily make bogeys and double-bogeys out there. I managed to keep my card clean today which proved to be so important.”
Germany’s Freddy Schott, Northern Irishman Tom McKibbin, Englishman Jamie Rutherford and Swedish duo Christopher Feldborg Nielsen and Joakim Wikstrom shared fifth place on nine under par. England’s Nathan Kimsey, Spaniard Pedro Oriol and Swede Anton Karlsson finished in a tie for tenth on eight under par.

“I remember they rented a big house… where a bunch of people were staying. I was sharing a room with a friend, but he had a girlfriend and she was there a lot,” Hovland told reporters at the Kasumigaseki Country Club.
“I didn’t get to spend the time I needed in that room. I was young and might have complained a lot about that. I’d never met Kristian but knew who he was… after I’d told this to a couple of people he asked me: ‘Well, what did you shoot the first two days of the tournament?’.
“I just said, ‘Well, I shot 82-82’ and he was like ‘It doesn’t matter where you’re sleeping if you’re shooting 82-82’. Never met the guy before, we were off to a good start.”
