Three Trojans Earn Golfweek All-American Honors
USC seniors Amelia Garvey, Alyaa Abdulghany and Allisen Corpuz, who helped lead USC to five wins in the 2021 season, including the Trojans' second straight Pac-12 title, were tabbed by Golfweek as 2021 All-Americans, the magazine announced Thursday (June 10).
Abdulghany and Corpuz earned third team honors while Garvey was tabbed as an honorable mention. Abdulghany and Corpuz also were selected as WGCA All-American picks in late May.
It is the third All-American nod for each. Corpuz was a first team selection in 2020 and an honorable mention pick in 2018. Garvey and Abdulghany were both All-American honorable mention picks in 2019 and 2020.
The three All-American awards give USC 11 in the last three seasons under third-year head coach Justin Silverstein.
Abdulghany finished her career with a 72.91 stroke average, 14th best in school history, after a team-best 72.64 stroke average as a senior. She was the lone Trojan to play all four rounds at the 2021 NCAA Championships, tying for 36th including a third-round 69, her ninth round in the 60s of her career (tied for 15th most in program history).
She posted four top 10s and six top 13s in nine starts in 2021 with 11 rounds of par or better, including seven under par. Her 6-under 210 at The Gold Rush was her most under par as a Trojan and her mid-season streak of three straight tournaments of par or better was also her USC best.
Corpuz posted a pair of wins as part of an incredible start to her senior season, posting six straight top 4 finishes, the best at USC in two decades. A 2021 ANNIKA Award finalist, she led USC in rounds in the 60s (six), rounds of par or better (15) and rounds under par (14), all career best efforts.
Corpuz, who reached No. 1 in the Golfweek rankings in mid-April, finished her career with 16 rounds in the 60s, fourth most in program history. Her 14 rounds under par are USC's most since Annie Park had 19 and Kyung Kim had 18 in 2014. Her career average of 72.90 is 13th best on USC's career list.
Set to play in the 2021 Arnold Palmer Cup, Corpuz's wins at the Lamkin San Diego Invitational and The Gold Rush gave her three career 54-hole wins.
Garvey finished her career 16th on USC's career stroke average chart (73.12) and was third on the team as a senior at 72.71 to go with 10 rounds of par or better, including eight under par. She posted four top 10s this year and six top 16s, finishing outside the top 22 just once.
In helping USC win its second straight Pac-12 title, Garvey posted a career-best second-place finish at the 2021 championships at 5-under 208 (67-72-69).
Garvey, who finished her time at USC tied for ninth in career rounds in the 60s (11), recently played in the 2021 U.S. Women's Open.
