Karah In The News!!
14 year old Karah Sanford puts up an impressive 71 in RD3 of the 2016 VOA Texas Shootout, drawing comparisons to a young Michelle Wie.
She will be playing in the final round tomorrow.
Tuesday at the 114th U.S. Women's Amateur at Nassau Country Club in Glen Cove, N. Y.
12-YEAR-OLD ADVANCES: Karah Sanford birdied the last two holes to become the fourth 12-year-old to make match play at the Women’s Am. Sanford said she stood on the seventh tee (her 16th) knowing she would need to birdie a couple of holes to avoid a playoff. She promptly bogeyed.
That hiccup made the 20-footer Sanford drained on the eighth hole even sweeter.
On the short par-4 ninth, Sanford said she crushed her drive and had 56 yards left.
“That green has a false front,” she said, proving once again that these young prodigies know a lot more than simply how to hit the ball.
Sanford, a rising eighth-grader from California, came within 3 inches of a closing eagle, but settled for birdie to shoot 74.
When asked how long she has been playing golf, Karah’s big brother Bobby said: “How long have you been walking?”
