Christine Lin Among Golf World's Top 50 Female Players to Watch

CAMBRIDGE, Mass. -- Freshman Christine Lin of the Harvard women's golf team has been named one of the Top 50 Female Players to Watch by Golf World Magazine.

Lin, who hails from Austin, Texas, won 15 of 32 events during her career at Westwood High School. A UIL All-Region Girl's Golf selection from 2009-12, Lin was a two-time all-state honoree and had eight top-5 finishes in AJGA tournaments from 2009-11. She was also awarded the 2011 HP Scholastic Junior All-America accolades.

AJGA Polo Golf ranked Lin ninth in the nation for incoming freshmen, and she played in the USGA Women's Amateur Championships this past summer.

Lin's honor by Golf World continues Harvard's stretch of recent accolades by newcomers. Last year,  Tiffany Lim was named the nation's sixth-best freshman by Golfweek. Lin was tabbed the Ivy League Rookie of the Year in 2012, giving Harvard three of the last four top honors for the conference's top freshmen (Christine Cho and Katie Sylvan).
