Women's college golf rankings: Ringler's preseason top 30 players

School is back in session and another college golf season is upon us. Golfweek‘s Lance Ringler reveals his preseason top 30 players (first-, second- and third-team All-Americans) for women’s college golf in 2018-19.

FIRST TEAM

1. Lauren Stephenson (Sr.), Alabama

Led the nation in scoring last season at 69.76. A repeat effort will come down to putting.


2. Maria Fassi (Sr.), Arkansas

NCAA meltdown should be in the rearview mirror for this explosive player.


3. Kristen Gillman (Jr.), Alabama

Spectacular summer for two-time U.S. Women’s Amateur champion. Calm and collected.


4. Lilia Vu (Sr.), UCLA

Capable of magnificent runs, winning four straight titles the past two seasons.


5. Jennifer Kupcho (Sr.), Wake Forest

Undisputed queen of the postseason proved she can bounce back like a champ.


6. Patty Tavatanakit (So.), UCLA

Captured Pac-12s and her regional in a four-win season. The sky’s the limit after that freshman campaign.


7. Andrea Lee (Jr.), Stanford

Not her strongest spring, but has been a Player of the Year contender since the day she stepped on campus.


8. Dylan Kim (Sr.), Arkansas

The Baylor transfer was seemingly always in contention in her first year at Arkansas. The next step is adding wins.


9. Pimnipa Panthong (Jr.), Kent State

Strong ballstriker with particularly good distance control. Won four times last season.


10. Olivia Mehaffey (Jr.), Arizona State

This Curtis Cup stalwart will be counted on to lead a young team. Thrives under pressure.
