Starkville, Miss. – Not one, but two Mississippi State golfers were named to Golf World’s Top 50 players to watch list on Friday. Senior Ally McDonald was selected to the women’s Top 50 and fellow senior Chad Ramey to the men’s.

The Fulton, Miss., natives both led their respective programs to one of the best seasons ever in MSU golf history.

Ramey won his first tournament as a Bulldog in 2013, while also picking up First Team All-SEC and SEC Player of the Week honors. The righty etched his name into the Bulldog history book by compiling the second-best regular season stroke average in the program's history (71.88).

“It's great to have Chad recognized as one of the elite players in collegiate golf,” Coach Clay Homan said. “He certainly deserves this recognition and many more that will follow. Chad is one of the hardest working, most humble players I have ever been around. He is a great example for his teammates for the way he goes about his business.”

All-American McDonald was selected on the women’s side after her phenomenal junior campaign. The 2013 NCAA Central Regional champion set school records in every statistical category this past season. She was also the first Lady Bulldog to be named an All-American since 1995.

“Another great acknowledgement for Ally by Golf Digest,” Coach Ginger Brown-Lemm said. “It is spot on with her consistency over the last year. Several elite level wins, top 5’s. She is a seasoned player with an incredible future.”

The women’s program will open its season first on Sept. 8, with the Cougar Classic from Charleston, S.C., while the men will stay instate and compete in the Sam Hall Intercollegiate from Hattiesburg, Miss., on Sept. 9.
