Anna Foster’s impressive year with the Auburn University golf team has been rewarded with a WGCA All-American award as she joined fellow Tigers teammate Megan Schofill in receiving the gong.

It is the first time since 2010 that Auburn has had two All-Americans in the same season.

Elm Park’s Foster hit the ground running in her freshman year, finishing the season with a 72.36 scoring average, playing thirteen rounds under-par and registering six top-20 finishes.

The 2021 Irish Close champion also played a huge role in helping Auburn to the semi-finals of the NCAA Division 1 Championship earlier this week.

It was Foster’s final round of 67 in the Stillwater Regional that propelled Auburn into the NCAA Championship proper, a career-low round for the Dubliner.

Foster claimed a huge scalp over world number four and Curtis Cup star Rachel Heck in the semi-final but unfortunately, Auburn were edged out 3-2 by Stanford.

It has been a great year for the freshman who was in sensational form between September and February, shooting twelve straight rounds of par or better before finishing the season with 17 rounds of par or better.

This is the third time in four years that Auburn has had an All-American. Foster’s teammate and Irish compatriot Julie McCarthy earned an honourable mention honour in 2019.
