Bronte Law, a UCLA junior from England, was selected winner of the third annual Annika Award, presented by the Annika Sorenstam Foundation, as the best female college golfer in the United States.
Law won three events and finished in the top 10 in eight of her 10 tournaments for the Bruins this season. In addition to the award, Law received an exemption into the Evian Championship, an LPGA Tour major, on Sept. 15-18 in Evian, France.
“It’s the biggest award I’ve ever won; being regarded by my peers and the coaches as the best player for this year is something I’ve worked really hard for,” says Law, a two-time WGCA All-American.
“It’s such an honor to win an award in Annika’s name, somebody who has been my role model since I started playing golf. … “I can’t explain how proud I am to be a Bruin. It is something I never thought I would experience.”
Thanks to winning the NCAA Bryan Regional, the PING/ASU Invitational and Stanford Intercollegiate Hosted by Condoleeza Rice, in addition to claiming four other top-four finishes, Law ended the season atop the Golfweek/Sagarin Women’s Amateur rankings.
Law is the second Bruin to win the Annika Award, following 2014 recipient Alison Lee. The 2015 winner was Leona Maguire of Duke.
Law will formally receive the award in September at the ANNIKA Intercollegiate in Orlando, Fla.
