Despite rainy conditions in Tucson, Maricopa’s Nara Lesperance won the girls’ 10-11 age bracket in the sub-regional Drive, Chip & Putt competition.
The win qualifies her for the regional at Torrey Pines in San Diego Sept. 21.
Nara, the daughter of Jonathan Lesperance and Shianne Holman, won the putting portion of the competition and was third in driving to earn the overall victory. She is a student at Sequoia Pathway Academy. The family has a GoFundMe account to help pay Nara’s travel expenses.
Winners of the regional competitions advance to the national finals at Augusta National Golf Club the Sunday before next year’s Masters Tournament. Drive, Chip & Putt is a free development competition sponsored by the PGA of America, Unites States Golf Association and Masters Tournament.
