On Thursday, April 18, Woodrow Wilson senior Grace Choi won the regional golf tournament for the third year in a row.

After winning the regional tournament by two strokes, she’s headed to Austin this weekend for the state tournament on Sunday. In 2011, as a sophomore at Woodrow, Choi came in fifth in the state. In 2012, as a junior, she came in third.

“And so, we hope the trend will continue and this year she’ll improve by two again,” says Woodrow golf coach Tom Crabb.

Choi is ranked 62 in the nation for junior girls, according to the American Junior Golf Association, Polo Golf Rankings. On May 6, she’ll also participate in the Tim Brown Golf Tournament.

“The reason she’s so successful is her incredibly hard work. I always say I’ve never seen anyone work so hard at a sport as she does at golf,” Crabb says.

Not only is the teen an exceptional golfer, she’s also an exceptional student. Choi is currently top of her class at Woodrow. She has earned a full ride golf scholarship to Michigan where she plans to study pre-med.
