TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (seminoles.com) – Beatrice Wallin, who is looking to become just the second four-time All-American in the history of the Florida State Women’s Golf program, continues to be on the ANNIKA Award Watch List as the latest poll was announced today by the Haskins Foundation. She was named to the Pre-Season Watch List in August, the Final Fall Watch List in October and continues to be recognized as one of the favorites for the award on the Spring Mid-Season Watch List.
Wallin, who begins play in her third Augusta National Women’s Amateur Championship on Wednesday (March 30), has earned three top-seven individual finishes in four matches this spring. She finished in a tie for second at the Valspar Augusta Invitational, in a tie for fifth at the Moon Invitational, and in a tie for seventh at the Florida State Match Up. Wallin was a total of 1 stroke under par in those three matches.
Wallin is ranked second in school history with a career-stroke average of 72.10.
Wallin, the reigning ACC Golf of the Year, is one of four players from the ACC on the Mid-Season Watch List. She is joined by Carolina Chacarra and Rachel Kuehn of Wake Forest and Emily Mahar of Virginia Tech on the list of 15 players. Wallin was one of the finalists for the ANNIKA Award in 2022.
Wallin will play in the third Annual Augusta National Women’s Amateur at the Augusta National Golf Club for the third time in her career (March 30-April 2, 2022). She is one of 10 players who have competed in all three ANWA’s, but only four have made the cut in both of the first two: Wallin (T-7 in 2019, T-10 in 2021); Stanford’s Rose Zhang (T-17 in 2019, T-3 in 2021); UCLA’S Emma Spitz (30th in 2019, T-3 in 2021) and Duke’s Erica Shepherd (T-23 in 2019, T-16 in 2021). Wallin is the only player who has finished in the top 10 of the individual standings in the first two Augusta National Women’s Amateur championships.
Created in 2014, the ANNIKA Award presented by Stifel is annually given to the top female U.S. collegiate golfer; the winner voted on by players, coaches and members of the college golf media. Named for Annika Sorenstam, the award was created in partnership with the Haskins Foundation to acknowledge the top female golfer at the end of the season and to match the Haskins Award presented by Stifel, which acknowledges the top male Division I collegiate golfer.
