Three UCLA Golfers Earn All-America Honors

June 1, 2006

The UCLA women's golf program landed three players on the 2006 National Golf Coaches Association's All-America team, it was announced this week.

Freshmen Jane Park and Tiffany Joh were NGCA 1st Team selections, and sophomore Amie Cochran was named Honorable Mention.

"We are very proud of our three All-Americans," said Head Coach Carrie Forsyth. "Since I have been (coach) at UCLA we've never had a freshman named to the first team, and what an honor to have two in the same season! Our student-athletes all had a great season, and it is nice for them to be recognized by the other coaches for their accomplishments."

In seven complete seasons, Forsyth has placed nine different players on the NGCA All-America team, including five first-team selections.

Joh and Park ranked first and second on the team, respectively, in stroke average. Joh boasted a 96% counter ratio and Park counted 93% of her scores. Park finished the season ranked sixth nationally, Joh was 10th.

Joh and Park became the first UCLA freshmen since Lisa Kiggens in 1991 to be named first-team All-Americans.

Sophomore Amie Cochran earned Honorable Mention All-America honors. Last year she was a second-team selection. She tied for sixth at the 2006 NCAA Championship and finished the season with a 73.3 scoring average. In the final rankings, she was 15th.
