Signing Day: Ranking the Class of 2024’s top women’s golf signings, classes

Auburn might’ve signed the top player in the Class of 2024 during this year’s early signing period, but Stanford blew the competition away in terms of overall recruiting classes.

Anna Davis, the Augusta National Women’s Amateur champion from two editions ago who is now ranked sixth in the World Amateur Golf Ranking, will enroll in January and join the Tigers right away.

“The total package,” Auburn head coach Melissa Luellen said of Davis. “She will impact our team not only with low scores, but also with her highly-competitive nature. … Many were surprised that she chose to remain an amateur. She feels she has much to learn and didn’t want to miss out on the college experience.”

Cardinal head coach Anne Walker will have to wait a little longer for her signings, but that wait should be well worth it.

Stanford has flexed its muscles again as Walker signed not only four top-10 recruits but four players who all competed in the most recent Junior Ryder Cup. That group is led by Swede Meja Ortengren, No. 10 in the world. Spain’s Andrea Revuelta (29), Sweden’s Nora Sundberg (34) and American Leigh Chien (97) round out Stanford’s 2024 class, which is believed to be the first time that a women’s program has ever signed four top-100 players in WAGR.

To put that into context: Not even Wake Forest, currently the No. 1 team in the country, boasts four top-100 players on its current roster.

Oregon brings in reigning U.S. Junior champ Yana Wilson, plus two other top-20 recruits, while USC nabbed a pair of top-15 players, including No. 6 Jasmine Koo.

Here is a look at the top 40 individual signings and top 15 classes for the Class of 2024:
