The favorites lived up to their billing this weekend at the inaugural Short Par 4 Girls Palmetto Tournament of Champions at True Blue, with freshman Jenna Kim firing a 6-under par 66 Sunday to lead her Durham Academy (NC) team to a five-stroke victory while also claiming the individual title.
Durham Academy (+51 two-round total) finished five shots clear of runner-up Dorman (SC), paced by Kim’s torrid finish that featured four birdies on her final six holes. May River (SC) finished in third with a final +70 tally.
Bridget Wilkie of Hilton Head Prep (SC) followed her opening-round 72 with a final-round 69 and finished at -3, just two shots back of Kim to claim second place in the individual competition. Olivia Roberts of Chesnee (SC) came in third at -1, and hit the highlight shot of the day Sunday with an ace on the par-3 16th.
