Blixt was born in Nässjö, in the province of Småland, Sweden, but moved with his parents to Karlstad in the province of Värmland. Representing Hammarö Golf Club, he won the 2003 Swedish Junior Stroke-play Championship at Finspång Golf Club and the 2005 Swedish Junior Match-play Championship at Ängsö Golf Club. He also won the 2003 Nordic Championship individually as well as with the Swedish team.
He played golf at Florida State University during which time he was a second-team All-American selection in 2007 and a first-team All-American in 2008. He was All-ACC as a junior and a first team All-ACC in 2008. He was a Ping All Southeast Region in 2008. He won the 2007 Inverness intercollegiate event and had five top fives along with two sixth-place finishes at other collegiate events in 2008. He won four career collegiate events and was a 2008 all-Nicklaus honoree.
Blixt competed in the Palmer Cup in 2007 and 2008.
Blixt turned professional in 2008 and competed in one Nationwide Tour event that season. In 2009, Blixt competed in more than 20 events, earning over $120,000. Although primarily based in the United States, he also played on the European Challenge Tour.
Blixt earned a place on the PGA Tour in 2012 by finishing fifth on the Nationwide Tour standings in the 2011 season. In May 2012, Blixt finished in a tie for third at the HP Byron Nelson Championship, having been tied for the lead until he bogeyed the 71st hole. After the Memorial Tournament in June, Blixt missed two months of the season due to a rib injury. He started the PGA Tour Fall Series well with another third-place finish at the Justin Timberlake Shriners Hospitals for Children Open.
In a rare visit to Sweden, he finished runner-up at the European Tour tournament Nordea Masters at Bro Hof Slott Golf Club in June 2013. A month later, Blixt won again, this time the Greenbrier Classic by two strokes over four players, including Johnson Wagner, who was four ahead of Blixt after three rounds. Blixt finished in fourth place at the 2013 PGA Championship.
Blixt played in the 2014 Masters Tournament, his first visit to Augusta, and finished in a tie for second place with Jordan Spieth, three shots behind Bubba Watson. He played all four rounds under par, shooting 70-71-71-71 for a five-under-par total. The result elevated Blixt to a career-high of 33rd in the Official World Golf Ranking.
On 1 May 2017, Blixt partnered with Cameron Smith to win the Zurich Classic of New Orleans, the first team event on the PGA Tour since 1981. The pair did not make a bogey during the tournament and defeated Scott Brown and Kevin Kisner in a playoff. It was Blixt's third career PGA Tour win.
