Pine Prairie native and current Ole Miss golfer, Johnson, is a double All-American

The list of accolades continues to grow for Pine Prairie native and current Ole Miss golfer Julia Johnson.
Over the past week, the sophomore phenom became the first Rebel women’s golfer in program history to be named to multiple All-American teams when she was tabbed as a Second Team All-American by the Women’s Golf Coaches Association and a Third Team All-American by Golfweek.
Johnson led the SEC with a 70.72 stroke average, the lowest single-season stroke average in program history, while finishing inside the top-15 in every event this season. She ended the season No. 22 in Golfstat’s player rankings. She also led the Rebels on the leaderboard in three of the six events played, finishing par-or-better in five.
Johnson took home the Battle of the Beach title, the third win of her career and second-most in program history. During that tournament, Johnson shot an 11-under 61 in the final round which tied the NCAA record lowest individual round and went toward a program-record 54-hole score of 203.
Johnson earned an invite to the Augusta National Women’s Amateur and was selected to represent the United States at the Arnold Palmer Cup after a record-breaking junior season. The Augusta National Women’s Amateur invite will carry over to the 2021 playing of the event while the Arnold Palmer Cup was postponed until December because of the coronavirus pandemic.
