Out of Staters Earn All Qualifying Spots for USGA Junior Girls Championship
There were 16 junior girls who tried to qualify for the USGA Girls Junior Amateur at Hidden Valley Country Club Tuesday and half the field included girls from out of state. There were only eight Utah girls attempting to advance to the finals of the USGA Junior Amateur and none of them were successful, including Utah’s best junior Sirene Blair who had to settle for an alternate’s spot.
Jisoo Keel, from Vancouver, Canada, was the class of the field as she shot a marvelous 69 and won medalist honors by a six stroke margin. Girls from California finished second and third, and Sirene Blair finished in fourth place with a 78. She has played some marvelous golf this year, but it wasn’t her day at Hidden Valley.
