JGAA Alum And ASU Sun Devil Standout Ashley Menne Receives Third Consecutive Invitation To Play In Augusta National Women’s Amateur

By February 22, 2024No Comments


      Ashley Menne, an alumna of JGAA and standout of the Sun Devil Women’s Golf team, has been invited back to the Augusta National Women’s Amateur. This marks her third straight appearance in the prestigious event as a senior at Arizona State University. In her debut in 2022, she made it to the final round, securing a 29th place finish.

      Menne’s golfing journey includes notable achievements such as participating in the inaugural Drive, Chip and Putt National Finals in 2014 where she finished T-3 in the Girls 12-13 age division at Augusta National. Throughout her collegiate career, she has showcased top-notch performances, including two top-10 finishes for Arizona State this season, notably as a runner-up in the Match in the Desert in January.

      Her accomplishments extend beyond the collegiate level. In 2023, she attained the status of a three-time All-American, clinched her third Arizona Women’s Amateur title, reached the Round of 16 in the North and South Women’s Amateur, and proudly represented the United States in the Arnold Palmer Cup.

      Before her collegiate journey, Menne established herself as a force in junior golf, earning four-time junior All-American honors from 2016 to 2020. Additionally, in 2019, she emerged victorious in the Pro-Junior competition at a PGA Tour Champions event at Pebble Beach alongside Tom Lehman.

       The 2024 edition of the Augusta National Women’s Amateur continues its tradition of providing female amateur golfers with the opportunity to grace the iconic Augusta National Golf Course. Menne’s consistent performance has earned her a place in this prestigious event for the third consecutive year, based on her standing in the United States amateur rankings.

       Menne’s participation adds to the legacy of Sun Devils competing at the Augusta National Women’s Amateur, with at least one member of the program involved each year since 2019. Notably, the 2023 Augusta National Women’s Amateur Champion, provided she maintains her amateur status, will receive invitations to the next five Augusta National Women’s Amateurs, the 2023 U.S. Women’s Open, the 2023 Women’s Open, and any USGA, R&A, and PGA of America amateur championships for which she is eligible for one year.
