DeKalb County Senior golfer Anna Chew is headed to State after winning the Regional Tournament on Tuesday with a stellar score of 65.
This comes just a week after Chew won the District Tournament and was named District Player of the Year after firing a 73 to lead the pack. Head Coach John Pryor talked after the District Tournament and said that Chew loved playing on the Golden Eagle course.
Today, she echoed that sentiment.
“I feel amazing. Every time I’ve played this course in high school, I’ve shot a 73,” Chew said. “I’m glad I could finally break that number today.”
It wasn’t a day that happened without preparation, as Chew said that she came out to the course over the weekend to work on her game ahead of the tournament.
“We came out here and chipped and putted on some of the greens,” Chew said. “We played a few holes, though not as many as last time, but we still chipped and putted.”
Pryor mentioned that while it was a bigger stage than the previous week, it didn’t seem like it was too big for Chew.
“She was great today, she had four birdies in a row (at one point),” Pryor said. “She was playing with some good competitors and they put some pressure on her, but she rose to the occasion and played like a champ today.”
After the district tournament, Pryor was quick to credit Chew with all of her success, saying that she used most of her free time to work on her game and prepare for upcoming tournaments. Today, Chew spoke about what it’s been like to have a coach as supportive as Pryor.
“It’s amazing, it’s the best feeling in the world,” Chew said about having a coach like Pryor. “I definitely don’t think there’s any coach that could be as supportive as he is.”
