English strokeplay champion Jodi Ewart has been honoured for her stellar performances on the US women’s college circuit.
The University of New Mexico player was named to the Duramed National Golf Coaches Association Division I All-American First Team.
It’s over 20 years since a UNM woman student was named first team All-American "It puts the cherry on top of the sundae for Jodi's season," said college head coach Jill Trujillo. "It has been her main goal for the entire year. She is a rare player that sets that type of goal and works her hardest to reach it.”
Jodi’s 2008-09 season was the best-ever by a UNM woman golfer. The three-time Mountain West Conference Player of the Year finished the season ranked ninth nationally in the Golfweek/Sagarin Performance Index . She had seven top-five finishes in 10 tournaments, including two wins.
Jodi, from Catterick Golf Club in Yorkshire, is an England international and a Curtis Cup player.
