Updated: December 30, 2014

The Oregon Golf Association (OGA) announced the Golfer of the Year for the 2014 championship season – Gigi Stoll of Beaverton, Ore. Stoll was nominated because of the great season she had nationally, regionally and locally emphasizing the OGA’s commitment to a player’s total body of work for the season.

Stoll, a senior at Beaverton High School, had an outstanding year locally, winning both the Oregon Women’s Amateur Championship and Oregon Junior Amateur Championship and finishing second at the Oregon Women’s Stroke Play in a playoff.

In April, she had a terrific start to her season.

Stoll won the Women’s Tournament of Champions to start the championship season. She also made it to the Round of 16 at the U.S. Girls Junior Amateur Championship, however, her greatest accomplishment of the year may have come in her own backyard when she not only qualified for the LPGA Portland Classic, but made the cut and finished T52 after rounds of 71-74-71-71 in her professional event debut.

Stoll was recently named the PNGA Women’s Player of the Year; she has committed to play golf at the University of Arizona and will begin her collegiate career after graduating next June.

The OGA Golfer of the Year title is a nomination by the OGA Tournament Committee, which governs all of its championships and competitions. Players from different divisions in the OGA are considered for this award, based mostly on their finish within their division’s OGA Performance Points.
