Song Off and Running

via dailytrojan.com

Well, that was fast.

Shortly after earning Pac-10 player of the year honors as a sophomore at USC and helping the Women of Troy finish second (by just one stroke) to Purdue at the NCAA Championship last month, Jennifer Song is off to a strong start on the professional tour.

Over the weekend, the former USC All-American won the Tate & Lyle Players Championship, a Duramed FUTURES Tour event, while breaking a tournament scoring record in the process. Per USCTrojans.com:

Former USC All-American Jennifer Song wasted little time in making her mark as a first-week professional, winning her pro debut this past weekend by six shots at the $125,000 Tate & Lyle Players Championship, a Duramed FUTURES Tour event.

Song carded rounds of 68-67-65-61 to smash the tournament's 72-hole record at 19-under 261 at Hickory Point Golf Club in Decatur, Ill. She also tied the previous 18-hole mark with her sizzling 9-under-par score of 61 in Saturday's (June 19) final round of the 26th annual event.

"This win means a lot," said Song, 20, of Ann Arbor, Mich., who pocketed $17,500 for her first professional payday. "Turning professional and stepping into the real world is special, but it's also scary. Honestly, I don't know what was going through my head today. It was like magic."

Song, the 2010 Pac-10 Golfer of the Year, helped the Women of Troy finish second (by just one stroke) at the recent NCAA Championship.

Song won't be returning to USC as a junior next season, surrendering her two remaining years of eligibility, as she will be devoting herself full-time to the professional tour. As a result, it's nice to see her enjoying so much success early on. We wish her all the best.

Fight On!
