ACA Golfer Megan Schofill Ranked #32 in the World
Aucilla Christian Academy golfer Megan Schofill started her senior year in the most outstanding way: she progressed to the round of 32 at the United States Golf Association's Women's Amateur Championship! With her father Billy Schofill by her side as her caddie, Megan scored 72 the first round and 71 the second round to make the cut at the Golf Club of Tennessee in Kington Springs, August 6-12, 2018. She won her first match in the round of 64 and came up short in the round of 32.
It is quite an achievement just to qualify for the U.S. Amateur, the most prestigious female amateur tournament in the world. Making the cut and winning in match play is truly remarkable, especially for a golfer still in high school.
"In the last two years Megan has gone from being a solid high school golfer to being one of the best junior players in the country," said ACA Golf Coach David Jackson. "She performed better than many of the college golfers she will be competing against when she enrolls at the University of Kentucky after her senior year at ACA. I could not be more proud of Megan for the way she plays and the way she handles herself on the course. She is a great ambassador for Christ and Aucilla Christian."
Megan’s parents are proud of her as well. “You receive so much joy as a parent seeing your child’s hard work and dedication pay off,” said her mother Paulette.
ACA's golf season begins next month; the schedule will be posted soon on aucilla.org.
