Anna Davis has decided where she wants to play college golf.

The 16-year-old who won the Augusta National Women's Amateur in April announced Monday she has committed to the Auburn women's golf program via her Instagram account. Davis posted a photo with Tigers' coach Melissa Luellen and assistant Kim Hall.

Last week, Davis' twin brother, Billy, committed to play for the Auburn men.

However, whether Davis ever makes it to Auburn remains to be seen. She could turn professional before ever teeing it up for the Tigers. The early signing period for her class is next November.

She's the second-ranked golfer in the Class of 2024, behind Yana Wilson, and fourth among all amateurs in the American Junior Golf Association's rankings. She's seventh in the World Amateur Golf Ranking.

Davis earned exemptions into several professional events following her victory at Augusta National, including three majors. Her best finish is a T-50 at the LPGA's Palos Verdes Championship.
