Georgia’s Bailey Tardy, Jillian Hollis and Harang Lee, who respectively finished with the second-, third- and fourth-best stroke averages in school history during the 2015-16 season, were named All-America by Golfweek magazine on Wednesday. Tardy and Lee were first-team honorees, while Hollis was a third-team selection.
Tardy, a freshman from Peacthreee Corners, Ga., enjoyed a stellar initial campaign at UGA. She finished the season with a 72.06 stroke average and ranked No. 5 in the Golfweek/Sagarin Performance Index. Tardy also was named first-team All-America by the Women’s Golf Coaches Association (WGCA). She was tabbed SEC Freshman of the Year, first-team All-SEC and Freshman All-SEC in balloting of league coaches.
Lee, a junior from Castro Uridales, Spain, completed the season with a 72.49 average and at No. 10 in the Golfweek rankings. In addition, Lee was selected second-team All-America by the WGCA and was a first-team All-SEC pick.
Hollis, a freshman from Rocky River, Ohio, finished the year with a 72.46 average and at No. 24 in the Golfweek Index. Last month, she was named honorable mention All-America by the WGCA, second-team All-SEC and Freshman All-SEC.
This is the second time that three Georgia golfers have earned Golfweek All-America in the same year since the magazine began selecting teams in 2006. In 2005, Taylor Leon was named to the first team, Whitney Wade was featured on the second team and Mallory Hetzel was included among the honorable mention selections.
