Scottsdale’s Kelly Su took the girl’s golf state championship at Forest Highlands July 7-8.

Su dueled Ashley Menne of Surprised. Both fired solid final rounds – Su with a one-under 71 and Menne with a two-under 70 (lowest two rounds of the tournament) – but in the end, Su (73-71—144) outlasted Menne (75-70—145) by a stroke.

Su adds this win to two others this season, Tucson City Jr Championship-Tucson Conquistadores in May and Junior World Qualifier in June, according to a press release.

“Kelly is really playing some good golf.  She qualified for the US Girls Junior Championship and the Arizona Team for the Girls Junior America’s Cup,” stated Executive Director of the JGAA, Scott McNevin, in the release.
