Amateur career

Friberg was a member of the Swedish National Team from 1996 to 1998. She was the 1997 Nordic Champion after finishing one-under par (70-70-75) for the tournament and had numerous top finishes on the Swedish Teen Tour, the Swedish Golf Tour and at junior championships.

She attended college at the University of Washington on a full golf scholarship where she was a standout golfer all four years and graduated with a degree in environmental studies in 2003.

Professional career

Friberg turned professional at the end of 2003, playing first on the Futures Tour, then the Swedish Telia Tour where she won the CA Trophy in 2005. She qualified for the Ladies European Tour for 2006. In 2007, she recorded three top-10 finishes on the Ladies European Tour and finished tied for 33rd in the Women's British Open, a major tournament on the LPGA Tour.

At the fall 2007 LPGA Qualifying Tournament, she finished tied for 9th, earning fully exempt status on the LPGA Tour for the 2008 season.

Friberg earned her first professional win at the 2008 MasterCard Classic on the LPGA Tour. In the final round she shot a 7-under-par 65 to come from ten shots back. Friberg's MasterCard Classic win is tied for the largest final round comeback in LPGA Tour history.

On 15 September 2011, Friberg announced she would be retiring from tournament play after competing in the Navistar LPGA Classic. She did play the Kraft Nabisco Championship, from which she was exempt due to her 2008 win, in 2012 and 2013.

After being out of the game for two years running a junior golf program in Sweden and giving private lessons in Arizona, Friberg attempted a comeback and competed in the LPGA Tour's Qualifying School.
