Chou top amateur at Kaohsiung Golf Heritage Tour
KAOHSIUNG CITY, Taiwan – Days after winning the Yeangder Amateur Classic, Kansas sophomore Yi-Tsen Chou finished as the top amateur at the Kaohsiung Golf Heritage Tour Tuesday on her home course at the Kaohsiung Golf and Country Club.
Playing alongside the professionals of the Taiwan Ladies Professional Golf Association (TLPGA) Tour, Chou and the rest of the amateur field competed on a separate leaderboard. Chou cruised past the other amateur competition, running away with a 12-stroke victory over the 36-hole event.
After shooting at even par with a 72 on the first round, Chou carded four birdies on the front nine of the second round to take a commanding lead. She finished the final round 1-over on the back nine to end with a 3-under 69.
In 2017, Chou became the first Kansas freshman to finish in the top-10 at the Big 12 Championship since Yupaporn Kawinpakorn tied for 10th at the 2013 event. Chou tied for ninth place and was named to the All-Big 12 Tournament Team. It was the highest finish by a Jayhawk freshman since Amanda Costner tied for seventh at the 2004 championship.
