With three top-5 AJGA finishes to her credit, including a win at last year's Solutions Consulting Junior Classic, Nannette Hill of Pelham Manor, N.Y., knows how to perform under pressure. The Pelham High School junior's mettle will be further put to the test during an LPGA event in a few weeks.
Hill has received a sponsor’s exemption to the LPGA's Sybase Classic May 17-23. Held at Wykagyl Country Club in New Rochelle, N.Y., the Sybase Classic’s field includes Grace Park—two-time Rolex Junior Player of the Year and winner of the LPGA’s first major of the year, the Kraft Nabisco Championship.
In addition to her win last year, Hill took fourth at the Lessing's AJGA Classic. The Rolex Junior All-American further bolstered her junior golf resume this season when she tied for third at the TaylorMade-adidas Golf Junior at Chateau Elan over Easter weekend. Read more from The Journal News here.
