On Monday, April 6th, Lizette Salas (LPGA Professional, Solheim Cup 2014 Member, USC Alumni), will lead a group of volunteers who have donated their time and effort for the 1st Annual Lizette Salas Pro Am Golf Tournament to benefit San Gabriel Junior Golf. San Gabriel Junior Golf is a 501c3 Non-Profit Organization that provides youth in the Los Angeles area with the opportunity to learn a game of a lifetime and develop life-long skills that will help nurture self-esteem and confidence. SGJG will also foster a sense of belonging, competitive influence and usefulness. Our purpose is to keep youth active and away from negative influences in their community.
First Place at the Kingsmill Championship, Williamsburg Virginia.
Lizette shot 67, 68, 65, and 71 to Win her first LPGA tournament as a professional golfer, and she won it by 4 strokes over the 2nd place finishers. She started day 3 one stroke behind Hee Young Park of South Korea, but by the end of the day, Lizette held on to first place position all by herself at 13 under. She finished her final round with par, but that was plenty to hold on to first. Tied for second were Lexi Thompson (USA), Yani Tseng (Taiwan), and Sarah Jane Smith (Australia).

San Gabriel Junior Golf congratulates our LPGA coach, Lizette, on her first of many tournament championships! Way to go!
