Crystal Wang, lit up The Legends Golf Club at Temeku Hills, Temecula, CA, with a final round 66 (-6) to win AJGA’s Enagic Junior Championship. Crystal, shot 69-70-66 (205) to win by 5 shots over Eunice Kim from Australia. CW, as her coach call’s her, made 15 birdie’s and only 4 bogie’s in 54 hole’s, in her first AJGA victory.
Crystal, credited her good play, to an adjustment in her swing, that she has been working on with her coach, George Pinnell. Pinnell said, “Crystal has been working hard to eliminate course management mistakes and to be more consistent in her ball striking. Her putting is improving, as shown by her 15 birdie’s this week. CW, when not playing in a tournament, practice’s 6 to 7 hour’s a day.”
Crystal will be a junior at Diamond Bar High School, Diamond Bar, CA. As expected she is drawing interest from several Big Ten, Pac 12 and SEC schools regarding scholarship offer’s.
