Lily Zhang Ladies Course Record 8 under par 62 from #4 tee
Congratulation to Lily Zhang from Amherst NY for breaking the Elkdale C.C. women's course record. Lily plays out of Park Country Club in Williamsville NY and is only 12 years old. She shot 8 under par 62 from the # 4 tees. Course total yardage is 4948 yards.
If you look at her score card she made 9 birdies and one bogie. The lone bogie coming on her final hole. Lily was participating in the WNYPGA Junior Golf Tour event held on June 13, 2021.
PGA Professional Jack Widger said "I was called by a parent on the course watching, he told me you have to come out and watch, Lily is 7 under par after 11 holes. So I drove out to watch and saw her birdie 13 and 14 to go 9 under par. At that point I thought I might witness a 59 especially with three very good birdie chances coming in 15, 17 & 18. Unfortunately the playing conditions were difficult, the wind was blowing 10 to 20 mph and the greens were firm. She made par on 15, 16 & 17 and in one of her only mistakes of the day failed to chip in close on 18 and missed a 6 foot putt. She has a beautiful smooth flowing swing and obvious knowledge of the game you just don't see in someone so young."
