2017 Championship Highlights

Coming off an impressive first round that saw her enter the final day atop the leaderboard, 16-year-old Emily Nash shot an 8-over par 80 then defeated Anne Walsh of The Country Club in a one-hole playoff at South Shore Country Club to claim the 87th WGAM Junior Amateur Championship title on August 8. Picking up her first victory in the Championship flight of the annual mid-summer tournament, which has been hosted by the WGAM dating back to 1930, Nash adds to a resume that includes multiple victories in various tournaments across the country.
