Amelia Hill has made two holes in one!
Aug. 22, 2011
St. Simons Island native Amelia Hill opened her collegiate career with a bang, shooting a 3-under 69 at last year's NCAA Fall Preview. That tally was the best debut by any Bulldog in the history of Georgia women's golf. Hill played in six of 10 team events last season and missed most of the spring campaign due to injuries. Still, her three par-or-better rounds ranked third on the team behind National Player of the Year Marta Silva Zamora and All-American Emilie Burger.
