 12 year old, Rose Zhang, continued her outstanding junior career with a 6th place finish at La QuintaRose shot 74-73 (147) and missed a tie for 4th one shot.  Rose opened the event with a 74 that consisted of 16 par’s and 2 bogie’s.  The junior player from Irvine, CA, hit many green’s but her approach shot’s left her, uncharacteristically, long putt’s for birdie.  Therefore she had a lot of 2 putt green’s. 
In the 2nd and final day, Rose shot 73 and had 3 birdies, but had 4 bogies to offset the birdies.  The remaining 11 holes were par’s.
Ke Coco Yang, shot 82 in her opening round and rebounded with a solid 74 in the 2nd and final round of the championship.
