Lim, Claggett Become Commodores

Women's golf adds pair of signees

NASHVILLE, Tenn. – The Vanderbilt women’s golf program welcomed Lynn Lim and Tillie Claggett to the program Friday after signing their National Letters of Intent to become Commodores.

“There’s a ton of excitement in our program today about this signing class,” said head coach Greg Allen. “We feel very confident that we are getting two young ladies that will make an immediate impact on our program.”

Lim, a product of Station Camp High School in Gallatin, Tennessee, is the No. 2 ranked player in the state of Tennessee in the class of 2022 and is ranked 21st nationally.

Currently serving as the player representative on the AJGA board of directors, Lim was a 2020 Rolex AJGA first team All-American and has three career AJGA wins. She also was a member of the Wyndham Cup’s East Team.

Lim has dominated the state of Tennessee junior golf circuit, winning the 2019 TSSAA State Individual Championship while leading her team to three state championships. She has won three Tennessee Girls’ Junior PGA Championships and is a five-time Tennessee Junior Cup participant.

“Lynn has been playing at a very high level for several years and I can’t wait for her to step foot on campus next fall,” Allen said. “She has the maturity level unlike any young lady I’ve ever been around. In my mind, Lynn is the total package in terms of the Vanderbilt student-athlete.”

Claggett, from The Woodlands, Texas, and a student at The John Cooper School, is the fourth-ranked player in the state of Texas and ranked No. 41 in the country.

“Tillie may be the best overall athlete we’ve ever seen,” Allen said. “She can absolutely dominate the weight room. Because of that, she hits it a mile and is a great ball striker. I can’t wait for her and Coach (Emilie) Meason to get her short game dialed in. When that happens, watch out. There is so much upside with Tillie and she brings so much to the Vanderbilt community on and off the course.”

Claggett is coming off a win at the Greenwood Cup at the prestigious River Oaks Country Club in Houston last month and also claimed victory at the Texas Golf Association’s Girls Invitational. She posted a seventh-place finish at the IMG Junior World Championship in the summer. Claggett also competed in the LPGA’s Volunteers of America Classic in the summer of 2020.
