Record Low Scores Highlight 2022 OGGF Showcase

With one of the biggest fields in tournament history, high school girl golfers at the 21st Ohio Girls Golf Foundation Showcase on July 25 also carded some of the lowest scores in its history.

“On a picture-perfect weather day, we were thrilled to host 27 schools from across the state,” says OGGF Executive Director Lynne Plaisance.

Individuals and teams mixed things up with interactive clinics focusing on putting, chipping and bunker work led by local PGA and LPGA professionals, as well as an on-course clinic led by tournament headliner LPGA tour professional Barb Mucha and PGA professional Jimmy Beers exploring the importance of the mental process to the game.

At the end of the day, Clare Liu, an incoming freshman from Magnificat, shot a record-tying low score of four-under par 68 to take medalist honors. She finished her round with back-to-back eagles.

Coming in second place was Dixon Hill from Hathaway Brown with a 69, and tied for third were Cammy Reed from Magnificat and Ella Wong from Hawken, with 71.

Teams competing in the event included Aurora, Avon, Avon Lake, Boardman, Hathaway Brown, Highland, Hudson, Independence, Kent Roosevelt, Lexington, Magnificat and Medina.
