Mary Cave Cup
Team Southern California PGA swept the field at the 2015 Mary Cave Cup hosted by the San Diego Junior Golf Association at Sycuan Golf Resort. The SCPGA Junior Tour entered two teams; Angelina Kim and Hannah Ko paired alongside Ashleigh Park and Brittany Park. The two man team event was held on the Oak Glen course where the girl teams in attendance were representing the following: Arizona, Hawaii, Northern California, Utah and San Diego. The two teams from Southern California arrived at Sycuan Golf Resort on August 4th,2015 for their practice round on Oak Glen and the annual Pine Glen Derby.
Team Southern California had the reigning Pine Glen Derby Champion Brittany Park, yet it was the two new players, Angelina Kim and Hannah Ko, that made it through to the final pairing. Hannah and Angelina faced the team from Utah on the 9th hole of the Pine Glen Par 3 course. Angelina teed off and put the team pin high just about 12 feet to the right of the hole. Two putts later Angelina and Hannah proved victorious in the first competition of the week, each winning a pair of Oakley sunglasses.
On the first day of competition both teams from Southern California looked to be starting strong. Brittany Park was on fire the opening 9 of competition with 5 birdies leading the way for team Southern California. Brittany and Ashleigh finished the day with 5 under total, 67, as a team. Hannah Ko and Angelina Kim were following a very similar path, and on the 17th hole Hannah drained a 15 foot putt to tie for the team lead at 5 under par, 67. Close behind was team San Diego featuring Hailey Moore and Serena Chon who shot a team score of 3 under par, 69. Brittany Park held the individual lead at 72 even par, at the conclusion of Day 1.
Day 2 of competition the two teams from Southern California played together, tied for the lead, and ready to battle on the course to claim the 2015 Mary Cave Cup title. Angelina and Hannah picked up right where they had left off the day before with a birdie on the first hole. Brittany and Ashleigh finished the second day at 3 under par for a two day 8 under par total of 136. Playing well, Angelina and Hannah finished the day at 6 under par and two day 11 under total, 133, claiming the 2015 Mary Cave Cup Championship. Angelina Kim tied for the individual lead with San Diego’s Hailey Moore for low individual honors. The two teams from Southern California finished first and second for the fourth straight year in a row.
