Den ofrivillige golfaren, also known in English as The Accidental Golfer and The Involuntary Golfer, is a Swedish comedy film and the fourth installment of the popular Sällskapsresan series directed by Lasse Åberg. It was released to cinemas in Sweden on 25 December 1991. Åberg won the award for Best Actor in a leading role at the 27th Guldbagge Awards.[1] The film was inspired by the golf stories of author P. G. Wodehouse.[2]


The business cycle in Sweden is booming. Hapless Stig-Helmer Olsson (Lasse Åberg) is laid off from a toaster factory and gets an offer to play a one-on-one golf competition against a wealthy man for money, something he has never done before. He travels to Scotland to learn to play golf, taking lessons by the skilled golf veteran Roderic McDougall (Jimmy Logan).
