The AJGA will draw a spotlight in Colorado golf next month when the Hale Irwin Colorado Junior returns to Walnut Creek Golf Preserve in Westminster June 5-7.
But a Coloradan drew some attention on Sunday by posting a victory in an AJGA event in Williamstown, Mass.
Sofia Choi of Littleton, a 14-year-old who’s in her first year as a member of the Hale Irwin Player Program at CommonGround Golf Course, claimed the girls title against a 15-player field at the AJGA Preview at Waubeeka.
According to the AJGA, Choi set a competitive course record for Waubeeka Golf Links with a 2-over-par 73 in Sunday’s final round. Choi, who counted the Junior Golf Alliance of Colorado 11-13 Junior Series Championship among her five wins last year, finished with a 7-over 149 total for two days, good for a nine-stroke victory.
