Clemson, S.C.—Clemson senior Alice Hewson and freshman Ivy Shepherd were both named to the All-ACC Women’s Golf Team on Thursday. Hewson is the first Clemson women’s golfer to earn All-ACC four consecutive years and Shepherd is the first Clemson freshman named to the team since Hewson was honored in her freshman year, 2015-16.
It marked the second consecutive year and third time in school history that two Clemson women were named to the All-ACC team. Both ladies will compete for Kelley Hester’s team at the NCAA Auburn Regional that begins on Monday.
Hewson is the holder of 46 Clemson records, including best stroke average in a season (72.10 in 2017-18) and best career stroke average (72.57). The native of The United Kingdom won the Icon Invitational at The Woodlands early this year with scores of 70-68-69, her fourth career victory, more than any other Clemson women’s golfer.
Her stroke average this year stands at 72.15 entering the NCAA Tournament, best on the team. She leads the team this year in top 10 finishes (3), rounds under par (12), and rounds at par or better (14).
Hewson finished 10th at this year’s Augusta National Women’s Amateur with a score of 217. That performance included an even-par 72 at Augusta National in the final round. She is ranked 27th in the latest Women’s World Amateur Rankings.
Shepherd is second on the Clemson team in stroke average at 72.68. She has a pair of top 10 finishes, a ninth-place at the Mason Rudolph, her first career tournament, and a fifth-place at the Clemson Invitational. The native of Peachtree City, Ga. has six rounds in the 60s and 10 rounds at par or better. She had a 65 in the final round of the Clemson Invitational that tied the school record.
