Bill Sun and Andy Yu, tied for 3rd place with a +2, 38, in the El Prado Chino Creek, on September 16, 2017. Bill and Andy compete in the Boys 9-11 Division. Bill had a birdie, one bogey and a dreaded double bogey, to post his 2 over par 38. A pretty solid performance for the up and coming junior. Andy, posted a birdie, 3 bogies and 5 par’s for his 38. It should be noted that Andy, finished STRONG, by making a birdie on the final hole to tie for third place. It is always a good sign, when a junior can “FINISH” strong, in an event.
In the Girls 12-14 Division, Bella Yang, shot a 78 and finished in 6th place. Bella was 2 over par thru 14 hole’s, but made bogies on 3 of her final 4 hole’s. Bella has been working hard to NOT think about her score or result’s during the round. She is trying to focus on the “the shot facing her,” rather than thinking , “I have to make a par on this hole.” Junior’s should focus more on the “PROCESS” rather than the result’s. If a player will execute well, the result’s will be taken care of, without all of the stress involved in worrying about what you MIGHT do. Bella, has made improvement’s and is close to “making her move” to the next level. Time and process will work, if done properly.
