Medinah Country Club Junior Headed to Augusta National
MEDINAH COUNTRY CLUB JUNIOR HEADED TO AUGUSTA NATIONAL
Reese Wallace, Drive Chip and Putt National Finalist (Girls 10-11)
Medinah Junior Reese Wallace is one of the regional winners and a national finalist (Girls 10-11) in this year's Drive, Chip and Putt which was held at Colorado Golf Club. Reese will be headed to Augusta this April.
In a winner-take-all playoff with Evyn Cannon, Wallace lagged a putt that Cannon's rolled past to take the Girls 10-11 division title. "I've waited the last five years just to get to Nationals," she said. "And now I'm going to Augusta!"
At the National Finals, one champion will be named from each age/gender division. Each finalist will be scored based on a 30-point system, offering the player with the best drive 10 points, the player with the closest cumulative chips 10 points and the player with the nearest cumulative putts 10 points, in each separate skill. The highest total composite score will determine the winner.
