Nigerian teenage female golf sensation, Georgia Oboh made up for her disappointing outing at the Orange Bowl tournament to finish third at the 11th annual Junior Honda Classic in Palm Beach Gardens, USA.
From the first round, Oboh ensured she was in the top three and she maintained her form to the end to finish in third place in the girls 16-18 years category behind Americans Alexa Pano and Kerttu Hiltunen.
It was American 36-ranked junior girl Alexa Pano who shot an even-par 72 on PGA National’s Champion Course with a two-stroke lead over Oboh, after the opening round and she won the tournament ahead of the 36 competitors in the event.
Being part of Oboh’s build up to the 2018 World Youth Olympic Games, she promised to continue working hard in her bid to put Nigeria on the world map in golf.
