Kristoffer Broberg (born 1 August 1986) is a Swedish professional golfer who plays on the European Tour.
Broberg started his professional career on the Nordic League where he won four events between 2011 and 2012. He also began playing on the Challenge Tour in 2012. He won the second event he played in, the Finnish Challenge on 5 August. He won again the next week at the Norwegian Challenge. Broberg won for a third time that month at the Rolex Trophy to earn an instant promotion to the European Tour; he was the fastest player ever to achieve this having played just five events in the season. The victories helped Broberg shoot up the Official World Golf Ranking from 1,109th to 173rd, and he ended the year ranked 79th after finishing runner-up at the Alfred Dunhill Championship.
Broberg again came close to capturing his maiden European Tour victory in 2014 when he tied for third in the Irish Open and finished runner-up at the Scottish Open. He also recorded his third career runner-up finish at the Made in Denmark event during the 2015 season.
On 15 November 2015, Broberg won his maiden European Tour title at the BMW Masters, one of the four tournaments that make up the Race to Dubai Final Series. He won in a sudden-death playoff over American Patrick Reed, with a birdie on the first extra hole. This was the 100th win by a Swede in the history of the European Tour and earned Broberg an exemption through to 2017.
