Megan Chou watches her drive at last week’s Alison Lee Championship. She tied for 16th place.

When Megan Chou goes on vacation, she almost always brings something that won’t fit in the overhead compartment – her golf bag. The Los Altos resident said she took her clubs on family trips to Hawaii and Japan this summer.

For Chou – one of the top junior golfers in the area – a vacation just isn’t a vacation without at least one round of golf. So even on last month’s 10-day trip to Japan to visit relatives, Chou managed to sneak in 18 holes and hit the driving range.
