Hedwall started to play golf at age eight and accepted a golf scholarship to Oklahoma State University in 2008. She is the daughter of Yvonne and Claes Hedwall and has a twin sister, Jacqueline, who also played collegiate golf in the United States, at Louisiana State University.
Hedwall enjoyed a successful amateur career, winning the European Team Championship in 2008 and 2010, the European Ladies Amateur Championship in 2007 and 2009, and the World Amateur Championship in 2008. While at Oklahoma State she was the 2010 NCAA Individual Champion, 2010 NGCA Player of the Year, 2010 Golfstat Cup Winner, 2009 and 2010 First-Team All-American, and Big 12 Player of the Year in 2009 and 2010. In 2010, she also won the Honda Sports Award as the best female collegiate golfer in the nation.
She was the medalist at the final stage of LET Qualifying School, a nine stroke victory on 19 December 2010 to earn her LET card for 2011. In 2011, she won the New South Wales Open in Australia on the ALPG Tour in her pro debut in January. On the LET, she won the Allianz Ladies Slovak Open in May, Finnair Masters in July, UNIQA Ladies Golf Open in September, and the Hero Women's Indian Open in December. She was a captain's selection to the European team for the 2011 Solheim Cup in Ireland. She ended the year by winning the LET Player of the Year and LET Rookie of the Year awards. She was also named 2011 Swedish Golfer of the Year, male and female.
Hedwall was again a captain's pick for Team Europe at the 2013 Solheim Cup in the Denver area. In that event, she became the first player in Solheim Cup history to win five matches in a single competition, helping lead Team Europe to a surprising 18–10 win. It was the Europeans' first successful defense of the Cup, and also the first win for Team Europe on American soil.
