Congratulations to sophomore Megan Adelman who recently won the Girls 16-18 Division PGA Championship via a three-hole sudden death playoff. Megan shot an 80 (+9), which included an impressive birdie on the 17th hole. Megan’s victory propelled her to finish 2nd overall in the girls 16-18 division for The 2019/2020 Player of the Year rankings for the Philadelphia PGA Jr Tour.
“I set a goal for myself, I wanted to shoot well and place well. I started strong but hit trouble on the third hole, a long par 4. I was in the water twice, then in trees and lipped two putts. I ended up with a double digit (10) on the hole. I shook it off on my way to the next tee box. I just wasn’t going to give up and let one bad hole define my round. I played really well the rest of the round and tied for 1st,” she said.
“It came to a sudden death playoff between myself and another player.” It took three holes but I finally made the par putt to bring home the trophy. I was nervous but I said to myself I’m not ready to go home yet. And those might have been the best three holes of golf I played all day.”
Megan is the captain of Baldwin's golf team, the sophomore representative for the Baldwin Athletic Association and plays varsity soccer and basketball.
