Hannah O’Sullivan, 17, won eight times in 2015 – three AJGA wins, one Symetra Tour victory, a win at the U.S. Women’s Amateur, and she was a member of three winning teams: the West Team at Wyndham Cup, the U.S. Team at the PING Junior Solheim Cup, and the U.S. Team at the Sprint International.

She became just the third girl ever to win the Rolex Tournament of Champions and Rolex Girls Junior Championship in the same season, and she won the Rolex Tournament of Champions with a tournament-record score of 14-under-par 274. A senior at Hamilton High School, O’Sullivan was also named an AJGA Scholastic Junior All-American for her outstanding academic achievements. She is No. 1 in the Polo Golf Rankings, No. 2 in the World Amateur Golf Rankings, and has verbally committed to Southern Cal.

“I feel so honored and humbled to be named the Rolex Junior Player of the Year. I am so grateful for everything the AJGA has done for me and for junior golf; the AJGA has truly changed my life,” O’Sullivan said. “It has been the best year of my life so far and to be named Rolex Junior Player of the Year and achieve this goal I've had for the last several years means so much and I feel incredibly blessed and thankful.”
