Meadow finishes second at AJGA Girls Championship


GREENVILLE, S.C. – Second-round leader Karen Chung of Livingston, N.J., shot a 1-over-par 73 to capture the title of the AJGA Girls Championship. Chung finished the tournament at 4-over-par 220, one stroke ahead of Stephanie Meadow of Jordanstown, Northern Ireland.

Hosted by the American Junior Golf Association, the AJGA Girls Championship was a

54-hole stroke play competition. The field featured 77 girls from around the world. In all, 13 states are represented along with players from Canada, Ireland and Paraguay. Competitors played the par-72 Furman Golf Club from 6,065 yards.

Chung, who is currently ranked No. 16 in the Polo Golf Rankings, picked up her first AJGA Open win on a course that played tough for most.

“This is unbelievable for me,” Chung said. “I finally have a title to my name and it will give me great momentum going into The PING Invitational.”

By staying calm and keeping her focus, Chung was able to card two birdies on the day, staying consistent throughout the tournament.

“I could see ahead of me that Stephanie was playing well,” Chung said. “It definitely kept me focused. You can never doubt anyone.”

Meadow, who finished one group ahead of Chung, carded an even-par 72 on the day and hoped that it would be enough for the title. As Chung came up No. 18, she successfully two-putted for par, clinching the title in the process. Meadow completed the tournament at 5-over-par 221, which earned her second place honors.

Shannon Aubert of
Orlando, Fla., Anne Marie Covar of Edgefield, S.C., and Suzie Lee of East Northport, N.Y., all tied for third with 10-over-par 226s.
