AUGUSTA, Ga. – It was a testament to the emerging history of the Drive Chip and Putt National Finals that Treed Huang, the winner of the boys 14-15 group, credited previous experience for his victory.
“I definitely learned from my first three experiences [at the National Finals], how the green rolled and everything,” said Huang, who also won the boys 7-9 group in 2014. “It feels still pretty amazing. Getting to win at Augusta National is unbelievable.”
Huang, whose sister Maye also competed in the National Finals in the girls 10-11 group, became the second player to win two different groups in the event, but even that accomplishment wasn’t the most impressive on Sunday.
Angela Zhang easily won the 7-9 girls group with 29 points, just one point shy of a perfect score, following victories in the driving and chipping portion of the competition and a second-place finish in putting.
Yana Wilson was almost as dominant with 28 points to win the 12-13 girls group and was joined in the winner’s circle by Sophia Li (girls 10-11) and Nicole Gal (girls 14-15).
Conner Ford won the boys 7-9 group after claiming the driving and putting titles, Sahish Reddy won the boys 10-11 group and Matthew Vital claimed the boys 12-13 group title.
