Did you know?

Hedwall's highly successful amateur career included wins in the European Team Championships (2008, 2010), European Ladies Amateur (2007, '09) and World Amateur (2008). While at Oklahoma State University, she also won the NCAA Individual Championship (2010) and became a 2010 First-Team All-American.

Turning professional in October 2010, Hedwall won the Ladies European Tour Q-School by nine shots to earn her playing rights for 2011. Her rookie season was stunning: four individual victories and the tour's Rookie of the Year and Player of the Year awards.

From 2012 Hedwall's attention turned to the United States. Despite playing in almost 60 tournaments in 2012 thru' 2014, she failed to record a win on the LPGA Tour. However, in 2013 at Colorado Golf Club near Denver, Hedwall became the first ever player to win five matches in a single Solheim Cup event. Her 5-0-0 (W-L-H) contribution was instrumental in the European women's first win on American soil.

Latest golf course reviews
Koksijde Golf ter Hille Golf Club: on what was previously open farmland, an enjoyable and challenging links-style layout has been crafted. Perhaps the inspiration for Koksijde's new course came from a renowned Harry Colt layout that existed in the 1920s just a couple of kilometres to the west. Read more...
