Texas Tech Golfer Kim Kaufman Named to All-American Squad

A Texas Tech golfer has been named to an All-American squad for the second straight year.

Kim Kaufman has been honored by being named second team All-American on Wednesday. This particular designation is determined by the Women’s Golf Coaches Association.

Kaufman is the only two-time All-American selection in golf in school history, as she was named to the honorable mention team one year ago by the WGCA and Golfweek Magazine.

This is the highest honor ever awarded to a Tech women’s golfer, as previous All-Americans Brooke Lowrance in 1996 and Gabby Dominguez in 2012 were honorable mention recipients as well.

Kaufman finished her Texas Tech career with a 72.3 stroke average this season, breaking Dominguez’s previous school record of 72.8 set one year ago. She also edged Dominguez for the career record after registering 74 strokes per round over the course of four seasons.

“She had a great final year that included getting her first win and being ranked No. 1 in the country,” said JoJo Robertson, Tech head women’s golf coach.

“She has meant so much to our program and I know we will be seeing much more of her on the professional level,” Robertson continued.

Kaufman wrapped up the season with seven top-five finishes in 12 events this season, including one medalist honor at the Landfall Tradition in late October. That victory earned her a No. 1 ranking in the country by Golfweek, and she remained among the top-25 players throughout the spring.

Golfweek will announce its All-American selections in the coming weeks, giving Kaufman a chance to earn another honor.
