Filipina golfer Yuka Saso brings glory to the Philippines once again after coming back to win the 2019 Girls Junior PGA Championship in Hartford, Connecticut, USA, Friday.
The 18-year old finished at 14-under 266 after starting off a stroke behind 2017 champion Rose Zhang. Saso closed with a 3-under 67 to finish two strokes ahead of runner up Jensen Castle.
The Bulacan native made history in the Jakarta/Palembang Asian Games nearly a year ago after becoming the first Filipina to win gold in Asian Games women's individual and women's team golf.
