A tight leaderboard saw Cynthia Tu, of Vienna, VA, finish in third place at 141 (-3), two strokes from the lead at the Florida Junior Tour at LPGA International Golf Club.
The Florida Junior Tour (FJT) is the premier championship series in the Southeast for junior golfers. Conducted by the Florida State Golf Association, the FJT events are professionally conducted on many of the state’s finest venues.
Cynthia, a senior at BGGA and a transfer student-athlete from IMG two years ago, will play golf for Brigham Young University this fall. BYU is located in Provo, Utah and checked all of Tu’s boxes in what she wanted in a college golf program.
“They are a Division I golf school and have good academics,” said Tu. “The coaches and team have a great dynamic. I really loved it. “
Tu is excited about where golf is taking her, as it is a sport that challenges her every day. She loves that every day is different and that in college she’ll be competing at a higher level in preparation for turning professional in the future.
