Pinewood School’s Megan Chou signs her National Letter of Intent.

Pinewood School senior Megan Chou, who as a sophomore verbally agreed to attend Southern Methodist University on a golf scholarship, officially committed to the Mustangs last month by signing a National Letter of Intent.

“Megan has been coming to our summer golf camps for many years and it has been fun to see her game progress,” SMU coach Jeanne Sutherland said in a press release issued by the school. “She has really improved over the past year and a half, and her motivation to compete at the highest level is strong.”

LA golfer Kim makes top 20 at state finals

Los Altos High’s Caris Kim got off to just the kind of start she had hoped for at last week’s state girls golf championships, bagging a birdie on the first hole. It was the end of her round that didn’t go as planned.

“Going into the last few holes, I was 1-over (par), but then I had a couple bogeys in a row,” the senior said. “It was a little frustrating, because my back nine was solid until then.”

Caris Kim, holding the award she received at the Northern California girls golf championships, has qualified for state.

Caris Kim said she will prepare for Monday’s state girls golf championships in Pebble Beach the same way she did for last week’s regional: “Practice, practice, practice.”

That strategy served her well at the Northern California championships Nov. 4 at El Macero Country Club, where the Los Altos High senior qualified for state. Kim seized one of the six individual berths with her 11th-place finish (out of 89 golfers).
