Katherine Zhu, grade 10, won the Gary Gilchrist Golf Academy/Shanshan Feng Junior Championship in August! This is her first American Junior Golf Association win. The AJGA website noted: “With a final-round 2-under-par 70, Katherine Zhu of San Jose, California, earned her first AJGA win at 5-under-par 211. The victory was Zhu’s first AJGA win after having two previous top-three finishes in 2014.”
Naturally, the win meant lot to her. “I was excited because it is my first win and I was relieved because I was worried I’d never win anything,” she said. Zhu noted that “keeping calm and patient” was key to winning. On competing for Harker this year, she noted, “I’m really excited to see how far we’ll go this year!” Congratulations to Zhu on this accomplishment, a great way to end the summer!
