“It feels pretty cool,” Lu said of her stellar round. “I wasn't even really thinking about the score until I was turning in my scorecard and the rules official told me I shot 31 on the front nine. I was like, really? I didn’t even know that. It showed me that I have what it takes to shoot low scores. I just can’t overthink so much and just be confident.” 

Lu, heading into her sophomore year at the College of William & Mary is looking forward to taking this win into the collegiate golf season.  

“I'm excited for the college season,” Lu expressed. “Last year I played ok, so this year I really want to play better and hope to shoot some of those scores.” 

Lu, 19, played a blemish-free front nine highlighted by five birdies.  

“Normally when I play, I have all these other thoughts going on in my head,” Lu recalled. “Today I was just very relaxed and it helped me a lot and this whole round.”  

In the net division, Lynn Jewell claimed title, shooting a 3-under par 67.
