Leo Lu, a 10 year old from Chino Hills, CA, holed out from approximately 125 yard’s on the par 4, 254 yard, 3rd hole for eagle 2. Leo’s round was an up/down kind of day as started out with bogey’s on one and two before lightning struck on the 3rd hole for his eagle 2. Leo made bogey on four, made par on five, made bogey on six and seven and then another par on eight. Hole number nine, Leo’s last, was adventurous as his driver put him into a position where he had to pitch out to the fairway because he was behind a tree that blocked his path to the green. Leo’s third shot was approximately 100 yard’s so he wanted to make a good swing so as to give him a reasonable putt for a par. Lightning struck for the second time in this nine hole tournament when his third shot found the hole for an unlikely birdie and a 2 over par 38.
Leo’s 38 was good for second place and made him one of three that qualified for the Callaway Junior World Championships that will be contested in San Diego later this summer.
Kat Muzi, 11, Walnut, CA, shot a +3 (74) to qualify in the Girls 11-12 Division. Kat has won multiple times this summer and is working hard to develop her game.
Congratulation’s to Leo and Kat who are both student’s at the George Pinnell Golf Academy.
