Inside the space of seven days, Macy Pate wins two major golf competitions

Since she and her folks now live in the Winston-Salem region, it is difficult to call Macy Pate one of Boone’s own. Indeed, even still, we can in any case call her Boone and Blowing Rock’s “old neighborhood young lady.”

It has been a significant year for the youthful golf player who cut her teeth at Boone Golf Course and sharpened her initial abilities at courses nearby. In the first place, she procured a spot in the 14-15 year old division of the broadly esteemed Drive, Chip and Putt rivalry, played at Augusta National the end of the week prior to The Masters. She followed that up in May by winning the North Carolina High School Athletic Association 4A Women’s State Golf Championship at Pinehurst.

Furthermore, presently, inside scarcely seven days’ time she caught the title titles in the 25th Annual North Carolina Junior Girls Championship at Catawba Country Club in Newton, played June 15-18. What’s more, on June 21-22, Pate ruled the opposition in the 55th Annual Twin States Junior Girls Championship led by the Carolinas Golf Association in Shelby at Cleveland Country Club.

What’s more, it was in two distinct configurations of contest. The primary occasion was match play against 52 other junior young ladies qualifiers, the second was stroke play in a field of 74 golf players.

In the most recent Shelby occasion, she ruled the field. Her 9-under for the two rounds of play ended up being the lone score at or under standard and her closest rival was 12 strokes behind, at +3 over standard.

In the match play occasion, Pate maintained structure as the No. 1 seed . Pate progressed to the elimination rounds where she crushed the No. 28 seed, Nicole Nash of Charlotte. In the other elimination round, No. 10 Sophie Lauture upset the No. 6 cultivated Morgan Ketchum of Winston-Salem. In the last against Lauture, Pate ended up down two openings after the front nine, however rolled out significantly more than one birdie on the back nine to win by three strokes after a birdie on No. 16.

Pate experienced childhood in the High Country while father, Chris Pate, was a scene architect for the Town of Blowing Rock. She is at present an understudy at Reagan High School in Winston-Salem.
