UGA golfer becomes two-time All American

Bae recorded four top-10 and seven top-20 individual finishes in 11 tournaments last season

Jenny Bae, who led the Georgia women’s golf team in virtually every statistic during the 2021-22 season, has been selected as an All-American by Golfweek Magazine for the second consecutive year. She was named to the publication’s honorable mention team.

A senior from Suwanee, Ga., Bae recorded four top-10 and seven top-20 individual finishes in 11 tournaments last season. Headlining that ledger were a runner-up performance at the NCAA Albuquerque Regional and a tie for sixth at the NCAA Championships. Bae wrapped up the season with a 72.59 stroke average, the 10th-best single season mark in program history. She also led the Bulldogs in counting percentage (.922), birdies (97) and low 54-hole score (8-under 208).

With Bae leading the way, Georgia posted its best finish at the NCAA Championships in two decades this spring. The Bulldogs tied for fifth at the national championships, their best showing since finishing fifth in 2002.

Bae also was tabbed an honorable mention All-American by Golfweek last season.

All told, 34 Georgia golfers have now been named All-America 61 times in the program’s history.
