DURHAM – For the fourth time in her amateur career, Duke women’s golf freshman Katie Li has been tabbed an American Junior Golf Association (AJGA) All-American. Li received first team accolades this week from the organization.
In five starts on the AJGA in 2023, Li turned in one victory and did not finish lower than tied for sixth. In June, Li totaled a 6&4 match play victory over Nikki Oh in the Polo Golf Junior Classic at Bethpage State Park Black Course to register her sixth amateur victory. She also totaled three straight rounds in the 60s – 69, 67 and 69 – to finish tied for second at the Hilton Grand Vacations ANNIKA Invitational.
Li received first team honors for the second straight year, while also earning second team accolades in 2021 and honorable mention honors in 2020 from the AJGA. Over her career on the AJGA, she collected three wins, 16 top-five finishes, 22 top-10 placements and 26 top-20 finishes. Li was also a 2022 Scholastic Junior All-American.
A native of Basking Ridge, N.J., Li is coming off placing tied for 19th at the Landfall Tradition to conclude the fall season with the Blue Devils. It was a career-best collegiate finish as she posted three straight rounds of even or under par with scores of 72, 72 and 70 for a 2-under, 214. Over her last three tournaments, Li has not signed for a score higher than 74.
