Forsbrand was born in Filipstad, Sweden, and turned professional in 1981. He first played on the European Tour in 1982, and has been a member since. He won seven individual titles on the European tour and finished in the top ten of the Order of Merit three times, with a best of fourth place in 1992. In 1993, he became the first Swedish golfer to play in all four major championships in the same year, Forsbrand led Sweden to Victory in both the World Cup and Dunhill Cup. He has a special penchant for low scoring and still shares the record for the lowest final two rounds in a major championship, scoring 130 in the 1994 Open.
