Katherine Muzi shot a solid 74 at Encinitas Ranch, the day after she won the Toyota Tour Cup at Empire Lakes. The 8th grader from Walnut wanted to challenge herself to see how she would compete in the pre qualifier for the Kia Classic, an LPGA Tour event. Well, she got her answer. Her 74 put her into 4th place, 2 shots off the qualifying score of 72 shot by Ellen Takada and the low score of the day by Angel Yin at 69. Katherine’s confidence got a boost in the Toyota Tour win that will help her improve her performance in future events. 25 players competed for 2 spots in the upcoming Kia Classic, so finishing 4th was a “solid” for Katherine.
