15 year old Felicia Chang, placed 2nd in a field of 18 girls in the Bishops Gate Golf Academy Junior Open in Chico, CA. Felicia shot 38-37 (75) to finish 2nd in the 18 player field. Felicia has worked extremely hard this summer to “learn” how to “play” the game and “make” a score, according to her coach, George Pinnell. “Felicia has done a great job at learning how to swing the club on plane and get the club face in the correct position at impact. The difficulty has been in the nuance’s of how to make a score and get the ball into the hole,” Pinnell said.
Pinnell went on to say, that Felicia, ” has had an extremely full schedule this summer that has tested her strength and durability as well as her mental game, and it seem’s like it is starting to come together as the summer closes.”
Katherine Muzi and Newport Laparojkit are also in the field in Chico.
