University of Miami golfer Sara Byrne capped off a sensational final collegiate season when she was named a Women’s Golf Coaches Association Second Team All-American.

A first-time honoree, Byrne becomes the 25th Miami golfer to earn All-American plaudits and first since 2020. The senior student enjoyed a stellar year and becomes just the fourth Second Team honoree in program history.

Byrne, who finished the 2023-24 season as the 21st ranked golfer in the nation after two wins, is one of four Atlantic Coast Conference golfers to receive First or Second Team status. She is in elite company alongside Augusta National Women’s Amateur winner Lottie Woad (Florida State) and Second Team golfers Rachel Kuehn (Wake Forest) and Amanda Sambach (Virginia).

The Cork native registered eight top-10 finishes, a brace of individual tournament titles and shot par-or-better in 24 of 35 rounds played as she spearheaded Miami’s challenge to the regional championships.

Byrne was named ACC Golfer of the Month twice and earned a spot on the postseason All-ACC Team.

The Irish Close champion set a new programme record in the single-season scoring average (70.34), individual 18-hole score (63; -9) and individual 54-hole score (197; -19).

Byrne will represent Team International at the Arnold Palmer Cup in Lahinch this July.
