Hannah Wood Wins the 2013 Kathy Whitworth Invitational

Congratulations to Junior Hannah Wood for winning the 2013 Kathy Whitworth Invitational Junior Girls Golf Championship in Ft. Worth, Texas today.
In her post-round interview, the Arapahoe High School, Colorado junior rambled on about playing her kind of game and staying with each shot while trying to get comfortable in the surroundings during a final-round 74 at Mira Vista Country Club.
Then it hit her in mid-sentence. “This is a national event, isn’t it,” she said. “I’m not really sure what to think, it’s my first real event at this level and I’m just kind of trying to breath a little. I think it’s just started to sink in.”
If her one-shot victory over Florida’s Samantha Wagner wasn’t enough to tip the scales and put her on the national radar, at least her father Don had some good news shortly after the final round. TCU golf coach Angie Ravaioli-Larkin had just invited Wood to visit the school’s campus later Tuesday evening.
