Georgia’s Caterina Don was tabbed a second-team All-American by Golfweek on Monday.

Don, a freshman from Pinerolo, Italy, finished the 2019-20 season ranked No. 19 in the Golfweek/Sagarin national individual rankings. She led the Bulldogs in virtually every statistical category. Most notably, Don posted a 70.25 stroke average over 20 rounds, the fifth-best effort in program history. She also paced Georgia in par-or-better rounds (11), top-10 finishes (four), birdies (59) and counting percentage (100.0).

Don opened her collegiate career by capturing medalist honors at the Minnesota Invitational, becoming just the second golfer to win her debut at Georgia. She shot 9-under 135 en route to the victory, which tied the fourth-best tournament tally ever by a Bulldog. Don went on to post three more top-5 finishes in seven tournaments during the Bulldogs’ shortened season.

Don joins a long list of All-Americans or the Bulldogs. All told, 33 Georgia golfers have now won All-America accolades 59 times.
