Laney Frye Named a 2023-24 Golfweek All-America Honorable Mention

LEXINGTON, Ky. – Four-time University of Kentucky women’s golf record holder Laney Frye has been named a Golfweek All-America Honorable Mention.

The recognition marks her second All-America nod of the season and the fourth of her college career.

Frye, a Nicholasville, Kentucky, native, concluded her senior season with a 71.0 stroke average on 10 tournaments and 29 rounds, which is the second-best, single-season stroke average in program history. That comes only behind her school record of 70.9, which she set last season in 2022-23.

Through her 29 rounds this season, 17 were par-or-better and 16 were better-than-par. Her 17 rounds of par-or-better are second most in program history, also only behind her school record of 20 that she recorded last season.

The All-Southeastern Conference First Team selection finished a career-best third place (-6) in the 65-person field at the 2024 SEC Tournament in April, as she led the field with 13 birdies for the event. In 10 tournaments this season, she finished in the top 20 on eight occasions, in the top 15 on six occasions, in the top 10 on five occasions and in the top five on three occasions.

She also made the cut at the 2024 Augusta National Women’s Amateur, one year after being invited to the exclusive tournament for the first time.

Frye currently holds four individual program records (single-season scoring average, single-season par-or-better rounds, lowest 18-hole round, career par-or-better rounds).

In the last round of her junior season in 2022-23, Frye set the school record on a 63 (-9) at the NCAA Pullman Regional in Pullman, Washington. Ironically, in the first round of her senior season in 2023-24, she set the second-best round of her career on a 64 (-7) at the Cougar Classic in Charleston, South Carolina.
