NASHVILLE, Tenn. — The Tennessee Golf Association announced Friday that Vanderbilt’s rookie Lynn Lim was named the 2022 Junior Women’s Player of the Year.
From Gallatin, Lim joins Rachel Heck, Sophie Linder, Alexandra Farnsworth and Kendall Martindale as the only multiple-time Junior Player of the Year winners.
“I’m truly humbled and honored to be part of this fantastic group of players,” Lim said.
Lim had one of his best seasons in amateur golf this summer. It all started with a second-place finish in the women’s match on her new home course at Vanderbilt Legends Club. A week later, she won the Tennessee Women’s Amateur title at Chickasaw Country Club and that snowballed into 64 appearances at the U.S. Women’s Junior and U.S. Women’s Championships.
“It will take time to really settle in,” Lim said of her second Women’s Player of the Year award. “It serves as validation for the commitment and work I put into this sport.”
Her golfing success continued into her freshman year at Vanderbilt where she helped the team finish in the top three in three of their four fall events. Her first goal in the spring is to continue helping the Commodores women’s golf team succeed on the course, but she also has lofty goals for herself.
“I always work to improve a little bit every time I go to practice and play a game, no matter the setting,” Lim said. “Tennessee Player of the Year would be an incredibly high honor that I will continue to work towards.
“I also want to thank my family, my friends, my coaches and everyone who pushed me to be the best person and the best golfer possible. Without their support, it is impossible for me to achieve all my goals.
