ANNIKA Award Watch List: May 3, 2018

The NCAA regionals approach, which means just a pair of events remain in the ANNIKA race.

The ANNIKA Award Presented by 3M honors the player of the year in women’s college golf, as selected by college golfers, coaches and members of the golf media.

The winner of this year’s award will earn an exemption into the Evian Championship.

Some new names made the list, but the top of the list remained mainly in place. There are just two events left, but they are extremely important ones. Lilia Vu may be in pole position at this point, but much can still happen.

Without further ado, here are the fifth spring ANNIKA rankings for 2017-18:

Note: Co-medalist showings denoted as wins, * means tied for first in regulation but lost title in playoff
