Hannah Joo, a member of the LPGA*USGA Girls Golf eLeader Board of Directors, helped lead her high school team back to the top of the leaderboard! Despite the unusual circumstances, the Monte Vista High School Girls Golf team has had one of its best seasons and finished undefeated. This team has now climbed to 3rd place on MaxPreps, is home to all-league medalist Emily Luo (Fr.), and has a team average of around 38. Here is what graduating captain, Hannah, has to say about the team:

“I’ve been a part of this team for four years, and we started off at the bottom of the East Bay Athletic League. We didn’t achieve all that we have this past year from just golf technique, but because we’ve worked to strengthen our team bond. I remember girls used to never talk or even get along, but now the team is a place where girls learn to be leaders and to have fun while playing golf.”

It’s safe to say that this team will continue to grow and improve. It’s been a long journey to get here, but with confidence, determination, and positivity, girls can do everything they dream of and more!”

Who introduced you to golf and when did you start playing?

I started playing golf when I was 8, mainly because my mom wanted to start getting lessons. I stuck around with it in the beginning because my closest friends were at golf and it was a generally easy way to hang out with them.

Why did you decide to join the LPGA*USGA Girls Golf eLeader program?

I really value community and leadership and the eLeader program was an opportunity for me to continue exploring that interest while also sharing my love for the sport.
