West End, NC—Sarah Bae of Cary and Davis Womble of High Point have been named the

2010 N.C. Junior Players of the Year by the Tarheel Youth Golf Association (TYGA) and the

Carolinas Golf Association (CGA). The N.C. Junior Player of the Year award recognizes one

girl and one boy who have had the most successful year in amateur and junior golf events at

the local, state, regional and national levels.

Bae, a 16 year old high school sophomore at Athens Drive High School,

captured 10 individual titles including the CGA’s Dogwood State Junior

Championship, the Roy Jones Junior and the Jimmy Anderson Junior

along with winning seven junior tour events conducted by the Peggy Kirk

Bell Girls’ Tour (2), the Tarheel Golf Tour (4) and the Eastern Junior Golf

Tour (1). Bae competed in 21 junior events and finished with a stroke

average of 74.2 and finished outside the top 7 in those events only once.

Womble, a 17 year old junior at Wesleyan Christian Academy, had an

impressive year high-lighted with victories in the CGA’s Carolinas Junior

Championship, the Donald Ross Junior and was the medalist in the

CGA’s N.C. Junior Championship. Womble also tied for fourth in the

U.S. Junior Amateur Championship stroke play qualifying and then

reached the round of 32 in the match play portion of the national

championship tournament. Womble had nine tournament scores at 69

or better and finished with a stroke average of 72.14 with eight top ten finishes in the 14

junior events. Womble has verbally committed to play college golf at Wake Forest.

The Player of the Year awards were determined by a combination of each player’s

tournament scoring differential and the total points earned in the TYGA NC rankings events

from December 1, 2009 through November 30, 2010.

These outstanding juniors, along with the 2010 All-State Girls’ and Boys’ teams, will be

honored at the N.C. Junior Golf Night Awards Banquet on Monday, December 27, 2010 at

Pine Needles Resort in Southern Pines, NC.
