Harvard freshman women's golfer Tiffany Lim (San Jose, Calif.) enters the season as the nation's sixth-ranked freshman golfer according to Golfweek Magazine.

Lim finished her summer ranked third among high schoolers by Polo Golf and fifth in the Golfweek/Sagarin national rankings. She was a three-time AJGA Wyndham (Canon) Cup West team member including this past July.

It was a busy summer for Lim, who also appeared at the USGA Junior Girls Championship and who will also compete at the USGA Women's Amateur Championship. These two USGA championship appearances follow an incredible four such events for Lim as a high school junior – the highlight of which was playing in and making the cut at the 2010 US Women's Open at Oakmont. Lim was named a 2010 Rolex Junior All-American as well as a 2010 HP Scholastic Junior All-American. 

Harvard has become a destination for high-achieving female golfers in recent years under head coach Kevin Rhodes, the 2008 New England PGA Teacher of the Year.

Harvard has produced two of the past three Ivy League Rookies of the Year (Katie Sylvan and Christine Cho) while Bonnie Hu became Harvard's first individual invitee to the NCAA Regionals last season as a freshman.

The Crimson begins its competitive fall season at the Yale Invitational Sept. 17-18 in New Haven, Conn.
