Player of the fall: Kim Kaufman, Texas Tech
The Texas Tech senior from Clark, S.D., ended the fall season atop the Golfweek/Sagarin College Rankings after earning the first victory of her college career at the storm-shortened Landfall Tradition. Kaufman shot a first-round 5-under 67 at the Country Club of Landfall in Wilmington, N.C., to win by two shots. Kaufman finished in the top 5 in two other fall events, including a runner-up finish at the Ptarmigan Ram Classic to start the season. She averaged 71.5 for the fall.
