Junior (2016-17)
Audrey Judd stepped into a leadership role for the young Huskers in 2016-17. The junior from Olathe, Kan., played the best golf of her career down the stretch in the regular season, producing a pair of top-five finishes in Nebraska's last three events, including a tournament title at the Westbrook Spring Invitational.

Judd was also one of Nebraska's top performers at the Big Ten Championships, tying for 49th with a three-round total of 236 (79-79-78) at TPC River's Bend in Maineville, Ohio, April 21-23. Judd finished the season with a 75.08 stroke average, which was the best junior season stroke average in Husker history. Her 75.08 average also ranked fifth overall on the Nebraska season charts.

She closed the regular season by tying her career best with a four-under-par 68 at the Hawkeye El Tigre in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico, on April 4. Judd's strong finish pushed her into a tie for fifth in the 79-player field in Mexico, giving her the third top-10 finish of her career. She finished with a three-round total of 217 (72-77-68) to close the regular season with a 74.59 stroke average, which is 3.57 strokes per round better than her sophomore campaign (78.16).

Judd produced the best performance of her career, claiming medalist honors at the 2017 Westbrook Spring Invitational in Peoria, Ariz., Feb. 26-27. Judd fired a career-best three-round total of 209 to capture the individual title in a loaded 76-player field. Judd's performance included a career-best, final-round 68 to overcome a three-stroke deficit heading into the final 18 holes. She added a 69 in the second round, which tied her previous career best, after opening with an even-par 72 on the 6,269-yard layout of the Vistas Course at Westbrook Golf Club. For her efforts, Judd earned the first Big Ten Golfer-of-the-Week award of her career on March 2.

She followed her title at Westbrook with a tie for 60th (77-75-80-232) at the Clover Cup in Mesa, Ariz., March 17-19, before rebounding for her second top-five finish of the season in Mexico.

“Audrey has a lot of talent, and we want to mold her into a great player,” Nebraska Coach Robin Krapfl said. “We need to keep working on getting her away from trying to be perfect and just play, but we love her attitude and desire to help Nebraska get back to the top of women's golf.”
