Auburn junior Julie McCarthy earned Preseason All-American honours this week as she was selected to the Third Team by Golfweek on Wednesday.
McCarthy enjoyed a breakout sophomore campaign last year after finishing with the sixth-lowest stroke average per round (72.90) in Auburn single-season history. She was named First Team All-SEC and also made Honorable Mention All-American per the WGCA.
The Swords native had six top-five finishes during the regular season, including her first collegiate victory at the Clemson Invitational in April.
Over the summer, McCarthy represented Auburn in the Arnold Palmer Cup where she helped lead the International Team to victory. During that event, she earned an exemption to play in the Evian Championship where he made her debut on the LPGA Tour.
McCarthy’s Auburn Tigers are ranked No. 13 in Golfweek’s Preseason Top 25. They open the 2019-20 season on Sunday, Sept. 8 in the Cougar Classic, played at Yeamens Hall Club in Hanahan, South Carolina.
