It’s a good thing golfer Simar Singh likes match play, because she could be playing plenty of it the next four years.

“My two biggest wins have been in match-play tournaments,” said Singh, referring to the 2015 California Women’s Junior Championship and last month’s San Francisco City Golf Championship. “So that gives me a lot of confidence that I can hopefully contribute to bringing the team to nationals.”
