Good Sports: TOP-RANKED GOLFER
She’s not quite ready to compete on the LPGA tour yet, but Karina Jadhav, a third-grader at Pegasus School in Huntington Beach, California, is America’s top-ranked golfer among 7- and 8-year-old girls.
She attained the ranking by finishing fourth in her age group at the recent IMG Junior World Championships in California, just behind golfers from Japan, Thailand, and China.
Karina, who is now ranked fourth in the world, played 54 holes over three days, achieving a score of 182. She began playing golf at age 4 and can drive a ball more than 160 yards.
