Gloria Nip shows off how she qualified for the second time to compete in the Drive, Chip and Putt National Finals at Augusta National Golf Club.
With the wind starting to swirl and the temperature rising in the heart of the Ojai Valley in Ventura County, Elis Alaan could feel the tension building ever so slightly. Making her first appearance in the CIF Southern Section Northern Individual Regional on Monday at Soule Park Golf Course, the Glendale High senior had to overcome one final obstacle in her quest to extend her season. Alaan cleared the last hurdle on her final hole, as she made a 20-foot shot for birdie on the par-four 12th to shoot a four-over-par 76. Alaan, who will attend Morehead State University next fall, finished tied for 27th and will move on to the CIF Individual Finals, which will take place Nov. 2 at River Ridge Golf Course in Oxnard.
