Carl Pettersson (born on 29 August 1977) is a Swedish professional golfer.

Pettersson was born in Gothenburg. His father was a Volvo executive who was transferred internationally, so Carl lived in England from ages ten to fourteen and spent his last two high school years at Grimsley High School in Greensboro, North Carolina, in the United States. He went on to attend North Carolina State University.

After he won the European Amateur in 2000, Pettersson turned professional. He won a European Tour card at that year's Qualifying School and played the European Tour in 2001 and 2002, winning the 2002 Algarve Open de Portugal. In late 2002 he won a place on the U.S. based PGA Tour at Qualifying School and he has played mainly in America since then. His first PGA Tour title was the 2005 Chrysler Championship, where he became the third Swede to win on the PGA Tour after Jesper Parnevik and Gabriel Hjertstedt. He has featured in the top fifty of the Official World Golf Rankings.
