LSU Women's Golf Adds Swedish Golfer Edit Hertzman

BATON ROUGE – LSU women’s golf coach Garrett Runion and LSU Athletics announced on Wednesday that the official letter-of-intent papers had been received and approved for star Swedish golfer Edit Hertzman to join the nationally-ranked Tigers.

She shot an opening round course record of 66 at the Lakes Course at PGA National Sweden Golf Course to win the 2021 Henrik Stenson/Fanny Sunesson Junior Challenge with a 54-hole total of 5-under par.

“We are very excited to announce that we have officially signed Edit Hertzman,” said Coach Runion. “There is no ceiling on how good she can become with her excellent work ethic and desire to be great, along with the God given talents she possesses. We are looking forward to Edit joining our team next fall.”

Hertzman, who has had a lifelong interest in sports, enjoys participating in her hometown of Gavle, Sweden, in track and field, soccer, dance, alpine skiing and of course, golf.
