WOODBURN, Ore. — Gigi Stoll (Tigard, Ore.) has been named the 2015 Oregon Golf Association Golfer of the Year, the Oregon Golf Association today announced. This is Stoll’s second-consecutive OGA Golfer of the Year honor.

Stoll was nominated and awarded the honor following her impressive season in 2015 regionally and nationally, emphasizing the OGA’s commitment to a player’s total body of work for the season.

The nineteen-year-old followed up her impressive 2014 campaign with another historic season this year. She defended her 2014 Oregon Women’s Amateur Championship title by winning again in 2015, earning her victory with a dominant 8 and 6 win in the final match. Stoll would also win this year’s Oregon Women’s Stroke Play Championship, winning in a playoff against veteran OGA champion Brie Stone. It marked Stoll’s first win in the championship after falling in a playoff in 2014.

Stoll participated once again in the LPGA Cambia Portland Classic, earning her spot in the field by winning the Portland Classic Amateur Open at Langdon Farms GC in Aurora, Ore. She shot a 9-under par 63 that day, which broke the course record and won the one-day event by five shots.

In May, Stoll broke a 15-year state scoring record by six shots at the OSAA 6A Girls Golf Championship, finishing with a two-day total of 133, 11-under par. The win marked her second 6A title.

That same month, Stoll competed in the inaugural USGA Women’s Amateur Four-Ball Championship at Bandon Dunes Golf Resort after qualifying earlier in the year. Her and her playing partner, college teammate Danielle Lee, made it to the round of 32.

Stoll was also recently named the 2015 Pacific Northwest Golf Association (PNGA) Women’s Player of the Year, and has just begun her college golf career as a freshman at the University of Arizona.

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 are considered for this award, based mostly on their finish within their division’s OGA Performance Points.

The OGA recognizes many of its competitors through performance points and would like to congratulate this year’s OGA Performance Points Leaders: Men’s Division Sulman Raza; Women’s Division Gigi Stoll; Senior Men’s Division Michael Kloenne; Senior Women’s Division Leilani Norman and Men’s Master 40 Division Jim Dunlap.
