Stephanie Meadow (born 20 January 1992) is a Northern Irish professional golfer who played for the University of Alabama and made her professional debut at the 2014 U.S. Women’s Open at Pinehurst.
At Alabama, Meadow became the Crimson Tide’s first four-time first-team All-American. She left Alabama as the career record holder in most every category. She finished with a 71.89 scoring average, just 0.17 strokes above par per round over her 132 career rounds. Meadow won nine career tournaments – three times more than anyone else in school history – while carding school records with 73 career rounds of par or better, 125 counting rounds (95.5 percent) and 404 birdies.
Meadow was part of the Tide’s first NCAA Women’s Golf Championship in 2012 and is the only Southeast Conference women’s golfer to achieve both first team All-American and first team Academic All-American honors in consecutive years.
Meadow played for Ireland in the 2016 Summer Olympic Games.
She has secured her LPGA Tour card for 2019 having recorded 12 top-25 finishes this season including a win and eight top-10 results.
“Amazing, it has been a lot of hard work and realizing that it has paid off is crazy,” said Meadow, one of three players in the current Volvik Race for the Card top-10 to play in all 20 events so far this year. “You never quite know and don’t want to get too excited. It’s really cool, really cool.”
