Martin scored a final-round 6-under 66 at the Eagle Classic to win by three shots at 13-under 203 over runner-up Cara Freeman. So far Martin has recorded 10 top-10s in 14 events, including five top-five finishes, and jumped from No. 5 to third on the season money list with this victory. “This is a very crucial part of the season and this win means a whole bunch,” said Martin, 28, of Altadena, Calif. “It’s wonderful that I won, but this isn’t the end of the season. We still have two tournaments left.” Martin isn’t the only fan of Sun Mountain golf stand bags, Golf Digest awarded our Superlight 3.5 a Hot List Gold earlier this year with judges saying that the Superlight 3.5 is ‘the latest chapter from a company with a history of smart carry bags focused on details’.
