ATHENS, Ga. — The Georgia women’s golf team’s recruiting class has been ranked No. 1 nationally by Golf Channel analyst Brentley Romine.
“When it comes to ranking these classes, I absolutely love depth, and that’s what you see at the top with Georgia,” Romine said.
The Bulldogs have inked three premier prospects – Savannah de Bock, Celine Sanne and Natachanok “Drive” Tunwannarux (pronounced Nuh-tah-nuh-chah-nook Ton-wanna-rux) – during the NCAA’s signing period, which began last Wednesday (Nov. 9).
Both de Bock and Sanne were listed among the top-25 signees in the Class of 2023 according to Romine, with de Bock at No. 6 and Sanne at No. 24.
De Bock, who is from Belgium, is currently No. 56 in the World Amateur Golf Rankings. She has notched three victories during 2022, headlined by the European Ladies Amateur, and finished fifth at the World Junior Girls’ Championship last month. De Bock has represented Belgium 2022 World Amateur Team Championships and the last four editions of the European Girls’ Team Championships.
Sanne, who is from Norway, has posted eight wins and 26 top-10 finishes in 48 WAGR tournaments over the past five years. She represented Norway at the 2021 European Girls’ Team Championship, tying for 28th in stroke play qualifying and then posting a 3-0 record in match play.
Tunwannarux, who hails from Thailand, has competed extensively in Asia since 2018 and now attends the IMG Academy in Bradenton, Fla. This year, she won the PattannaCup and finished fourth at the Notah Begay III Junior Golf National Championship earlier this month.
