Yoona Kim of River Edge, NJ (originally from ROK) won her second straight UHY/Celadon Junior Championship hosted by Marina Alex, shooting 218 (+2) last week at Watchung Valley GC. She nearly blew it with a final round 75 and held on for a one-stroke win. It was much easier last year at the Saint Andrews GC above New York City where she shot 217 (+4) and won by seven strokes. Her high school class is 2020 and she plans to attend Harvard ... what a waste of talent.
As the for the alleged "host", where was she? Lewis and Gimmee make personal appearances at their junior tournaments, but where was Marina? I don't see any pics of her with the winner. Perhaps she didn't want to get put into a Mason jar for two weeks if she crossed the state border. Maybe she wished everyone good luck from from a big screen TV set up ... or maybe not. She did NOT mention this event at all in her last few IG postings.
Holes 10 thru 18 of the skins game between Big Mama Ahn and MHL will be broadcast today on JTBC Golf at 10 PM (Korea time). I don't get that channel, but not a problem as it will show up on YouTube soon afterward. MHL leads 7-2.
