Per Oscar "Pelle" Edberg (born April 13, 1979) is a Swedish professional golfer.

Edberg was born in Jonkoping, Sweden. He turned professional in 1997, and after several unsuccessful attempts at the European Tour qualifying school, finally gained his tour card in 2004, having played most of that year on the second tier Challenge Tour.

Edberg failed to retain his playing privileges on the European Tour in his rookie season, and after a year of limited opportunities in 2006, regained his tour card for 2007 at final qualifying school. In 2007 he finished tied for 12th place at the Open Championship, and had three top 10 finishes, including a tie for 3rd at the Smurfit European Open as he finished the season ranked well inside the top 100 of the Order of Merit, in 51st position.
