STARKVILLE, Miss. – After claiming her second consecutive top-15 finish to start the spring schedule, junior Ally McDonald was named the women’s Golfer of the Week by the Southeastern Conference on Wednesday.
McDonald has now won the award for a school-record fourth time and the second Bulldog this spring, following Rica Tse who garnered the award on Feb. 12. The Fulton, Miss., native McDonald has led MSU to a top-5 scoring average in the SEC at 291.82.
“It is an honor to be recognized for my past performances,” McDonald said. “We are working really hard and look forward to continuing our success in Hawaii.”
The All-American McDonald now leads the SEC in stroke average, 71.12, following a 2-under-par 214 scorecard to earn a share of 14th in the Allstate Sugar Bowl Intercollegiate Championship. She fired 12 birdies in the event to push her tally to 25 birdies in the first two spring tournaments.
“We are so proud of Ally and this recognition,” MSU head coach Ginger Brown-Lemm said. “She is only getting better and we hope she leads our squad right back to the National Championship. We have something magical here at Mississippi State women’s golf.”
Ally and the Bulldogs are set to tee off in the Dr. Donnis Thompson Invitational in Honolulu, Hawaii, on March 11-12 at Kaneohe Klipper Golf Course.
