The elusive first win. It can haunt and hide from even the greatest players. Most have to wait a while before their moment in the sun, especially at the professional level.

For Hannah Karg, that isn’t the case.

A redshirt freshman on the Baylor women’s golf team, Karg won the Women’s All Pro Tour’s Kingwood Forest Classic in Kingwood, Texas, on Wednesday, earning a one-shot victory at 4 under. The WAPT hosts professional golf tournaments as the official qualifying tour for the Symetra Tour, the LPGA’s qualifying tour.

A native of Hamburg, Germany, Karg, entering her second year in Waco, Texas, shot a pair of 2-under 70s in the opening two rounds before an even-par 72, holding off Maddie Szeryk (-3), a 2018 Texas A&M grad.
