LSU golfer Ingrid Lindblad poses at the team's golf facility at the University Club in this undated photo with her official invitation to play in the 2020 Augusta National Women's Amateur. The tournament was canceled Monday, but 2020 players are invited to compete in 2021 if they remain amateurs.

LSU woman’s golfer Ingrid Lindblad has been named to the 2020 Arnold Palmer Cup International team, which will compete against the United States July 3-5 in Lahinch, Ireland.

The freshman from Halmstad, Sweden, ranked No. 1 in the Golfstat NCAA Division I player ranking, is the first LSU women’s player to be chosen to compete on a Palmer Cup team and fifth player selected from LSU overall. Lindblad has also accepted an invitation to compete in the second annual Augusta National Women’s Amateur, April 1-4.

Lindblad has won two tournaments this season, including last weekend’s Florida State Match-Up. She has five top-five finishes in six starts with a 69.72 stroke average, having played at par or better in 14 of her 18 rounds.

Lindblad and No. 12-ranked LSU return to action Friday in the Darius Rucker Intercollegiate in Hilton Head, South Carolina.
