The 2023-2024 college golf season is upon us, which has our minds set on the postseason awards.
Summer may have just ended, but it’s never too early to look ahead.
Highlighting Golfweek’s 2023-24 preseason women’s college golf All-Americans is Megan Schofill, a graduate student from Auburn who captured the 2023 US Women’s Amateur at Bel-Air Country Club in Los Angeles. A two-time runner-up at the SEC Championship during his career, Schofill finally got over the hump in the City of Angels and captured the signature win of his career. Last season, Schofill was a second-team All-America.
Here’s a look at Golfweek’s 2023-24 preseason women’s college golf All-Americans.
Amari Avery, USC
Heading into his junior season at USC, Avery has won four times for the Trojans and posted 11 top-10 finishes. This summer she played matches at the US Women’s Amateur and also played in the US Women’s Open. She is a two-time All-American and earned third-team honors last season.
Zoe Campos, UCLA
Campos, who finished as a first-team All-American last season, played in the US Women’s Open and was on the 2023 Palmer Cup team. She had two wins last season as a sophomore.
Hannah Darling, South Carolina
Darling, a junior, has been one of the best players in college golf the past two seasons. The two-time All-American has nine top-five finishes in her first two seasons at South Carolina and advanced to the semifinals of the 2022 Women’s Amateur Championship.
Charlotte Heath, Florida State
Heath, who won the Smyth Salver and finished as a low amateur at the AIG Women’s Open, is one of the best golfers in Florida State history. Last season, she set a new single-season batting average of 70.56 and has 16 top-10 finishes in three years. She is a reigning first team All-America.
Rachel Heck, Stanford
The 2021 NCAA individual champion is finally healthy, and she showed it with a semifinal appearance at the 2023 US Women’s Amateur at Bel-Air. Heck, who won the 2021 ANNIKA Award as player of the year, looks to step back into the spotlight and become one of college golf’s best again.
Rachel Kuehn, Wake Forest
Kuehn’s resume is impressive. Four-time All-American, four-time Palmer Cup member, two-time Curtis Cupper, back-to-back ACC Player of the Year, and last season added national champion, helping Wake Forest win its first title in the school’s history. Kuehn decided to return as a graduate student this year, so it shouldn’t be a surprise to see her add more accolades.
Ingrid Lindblad, LSU
Lindblad, the top-ranked player in the World Amateur Golf Ranking and winner of the Mark H. McCormack Medal, has been as consistent as they come in college golf. She is a first-team All-American on tour, was a low amateur at the 2022 US Women’s Open and a two-time SEC Player of the Year.
Julia Lopez Ramirez, Mississippi State
The reigning SEC Player of the Year is having a breakout season as a sophomore. Lopez Ramirez is a two-time All-American and won three times, including the SEC Championship and the NCAA Westfield Regional. She also had eight top-five finishes in 12 events.
Megan Schofill, Auburn
Schofill proved her worth this summer when the Auburn graduate student won the 2023 US Women’s Amateur at Bel-Air Country Club. She is a two-time All-American and has been on three Palmer Cup teams. She has finished as the individual runner-up in each of the past two SEC Championships.
Stone finished runner-up to Schofill at the 2023 US Women’s Amateur, falling 4 and 3 in the championship match. Last year she was a second team All-American and has been on three Palmer Cup teams. Stone also finished T-2 at the 2022 Augusta National Women’s Amateur.
