University of Mississippi junior Chiara Tamburlini has been named the recipient of the 2022 Edith Cummings Munson Golf Award.
The award is presented annually for Women's Division I Golf and goes to the student-athlete who is an upper classman and both a WGCA All-American Scholar and a WGCA All-American. If more than one student-athlete qualifies, the student-athlete with the highest GPA receives the award. A donation of $5,000 is given from the Curtis & Edith Cummings Munson Foundation to the general scholarship fund of the recipient's institution.
Previous winners of this award include Stephanie Meadow (2013 and 2014), Brooke Pancake (2011 and 2012), Azahara Munoz (2008 and 2009) and Amanda Blumenherst (2006).
Tamburlini was named a First Team WGCA All-American after posting a 72.60 stroke average during the 2021-22 season, the sixth-best season stroke average in program history. She finished in the top-20 in all 11 tournaments she competed in, including an eighth-place finish at the NCAA Championships, and finished the season ranked No. 6 on Golfstat.
A three-time WGCA All-American Scholar, Tamburlini has a 3.960 cumulative GPA as a finance major.
