Jillian Hollis, Harang Lee and Bailey Tardy of the University of Georgia women’s golf team were named honorable mention All-America by the Women’s Golf Coaches Association (WGCA) on Tuesday. All three golfers were honored as All-Americans by the WGCA for the second-straight year.
Hollis, a sophomore from Rocky River, Ohio, also was an honorable mention pick in 2016. This season, she led the Bulldogs in stroke average (72.12), par-or-better rounds (15) and top-10 finishes (six). Hollis was named second-team All-SEC as well.
Lee, a senior from Castro Uridales, Spain, was a second-team WGCA All-American a year ago. She posted a 72.57 average in 2016-17 en route to earning first-team All-SEC accolades. Lee also recorded Georgia’s low tournament total of the season, an 11-under 205 at the SEC Championships.
Tardy, a sophomore from Peachtree Corners, Ga., was tabbed first-team All-American by the WGCA last season. A second-team All-SEC performer this year, Tardy posted a 72.54 stroke average with a team-best eight top-20 finishes in 10 stroke play events.
Hollis’ season stroke average was the third-best in the history of Georgia Golf, while the tallies of Tardy and Lee rank sixth- and seventh-best, respectively.
All told, 30 Georgia golfers have combined to earn 53 All-America certificates from the WGCA since 1980.
