Silverdale sisters Erynne and Katie Lee will both tee it up at
the U.S. Girls’ Junior Championship that opens at the Country
Club of North Carolina today in Pinehurst, N.C.
Eyrnne Lee is one of the top-ranked juniors in the country. She
shot a 71 to lead qualifying at Woodburn, Ore. Katie shot a 76 and
was an alternate. Evidently somebody dropped out, opening the door
for Katie. Knowledgeable golfers in the area have told The Sun that
Katie has the potential to emerge as a top player. She’s taken the
last couple of years off to follow her sister, who committed to
UCLA earlier this year. Erynne will be at junior at Centrral
Kitsap. Katie will be a freshman.
Here’s the link to the U.S.
Girls’ Junior website. An interesting note: Katie tees off at
8:40 a.m. and Erynne at 8:50 a.m., both on No.10. That’ll make it
easier for Lee’s parents to follow their daughters.
