Auston Kim on ANNIKA Award Watch List

Three-time honoree

NASHVILLE, Tenn. – Vanderbilt senior Auston Kim has been named to the Final Fall ANNIKA Award watch list.

“It’s a nice honor for Auston to be included on this list but if I know her, she’d much rather have her name on the award at the end of the year,” Vanderbilt head coach Greg Allen said.

The ANNIKA Award was created in 2014 and is annually given to the top female U.S. collegiate golfer as voted on by players, coaches and members of the college golf media.

A native of St. Augustine, Florida, Kim has been named to ANNIKA Award watch list as a junior and the ANNIKA Award Fall watch list as a sophomore. Kim was a WGCA All-America honorable mention as a freshman, confirmed participant for the 2021 Augusta National Women’s Amateur and earned exemption into the 2020 U.S. Women’s Open where she shot a 149 over two rounds as a junior.
