Ashley Burke

Ashley Burke, of Boynton Beach, is a well-known alumnus of the South Florida PGA Junior Tour. In her Junior Tour career with the SFPGA, Burke logged an impressive 35 top-10 finishes, which included four first place finishes.  While playing in the SFPGA Junior Events, Burke also played for the American Heritage Women’s Golf Team in Delray Beach.  Burke earned first-team all-county honors as a freshman, junior, and senior at American Heritage, while also collecting varsity letter’s all four years. Her success would not stop there, as her father, Jerry and mother, Kerri knew she would start a new chapter playing college golf on a scholarship at the University of South Florida.

In her freshman year at USF, Ashley showed that she was there to play and started her career with 4 top-10 finishes, while competing in a full season (11 tournaments) for the Bulls. Recording 41 rounds for the Bulls, Burke had a 74.4 scoring average that included six rounds shooting par or better, not to mention 4 rounds in the 60’s.  Burke got her first college win at the Florida Challenge, which was played at the very difficult Black Diamond Ranch Golf Club in Lecanto, FL. Not only did Burke get her first win but she continued to impress by placing second in the Old Waverly Bulldog Invitational, tying for tenth in the American Athletic Conference Tournament, and qualifying for the NCAA Regional Tournament as an individual. To top it all off, Burke was named an All-Conference Honoree for the ACC Conference.  We wish Ashley all the best in her next upcoming seasons at the University of South Florida and much success in any future plans.
