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.
