PLAYER OF THE MONTH: Cal State Fullerton senior Martina Edberg earned her fifth career Big West Conference Female Golfer of the Month award and third of the 2016-17 season, the conference announced on March 2.
She began the month with a second-place finish at the Battle at the Rock hosted by UC Riverside. Edberg posted a 5-over 221 at Oak Quarry Golf Club to finish five strokes back of the medalist. She posted nine birdies at the tournament, the second most amongst the 84-player field.
She would follow that performance with another gem at the stacked Bruin Wave Invitational co-hosted by Pepperdine and UCLA at the San Luis Obispo Country Club. Edberg was one of 18 individuals ranked in the GolfStat.com top-50 and finished better than all but one; Lilia Vu of UCLA. Edberg finished one stroke back of Vu for medalist honors, posting a 1-over 220. She posted eight birdies at that tournament, which tied for third overall. Edberg also led the field in par-4 (3.93, -2) and par-5 (4.73, -4) scoring average.
Overall this season, Edberg has posted a top-3 finish in all six tournaments Fullerton has played including three medalist finishes. She currently leads the Titans with a 71.33 scoring average in 18 rounds played this season.
