There’s something about the thrill of the chase that gets Timpview’s Sunbin Seo fired up on the golf course.
A year after overturning a deficit on the final nine holes to win 5A medalist honors, the BYU commit did it again on Tuesday at River Oaks Golf Course in Sandy to repeat as 5A individual champion.
“The thrill I get of catching up is really fun for me,” said Seo.
Trailing Lehi’s Pati Uluave by three strokes with just seven holes remaining at the 5A state championship, Seo went birdie, eagle, birdie over the next three holes to grab a one-stroke lead. She then parred the final three holes to clinch the win with a 3-under two-day total of 137.
Despite parring the final four holes, Seo stayed agressive and narrowly missed out on several more birdies by a couple inches. That included rolling an 8-foot birdie putt just past the hole on No. 18 after a perfect par-3 tee shot from 140 yards.
“I wasn’t even thinking of two putting, my mentality was I’m making this, and that’s how I played the entire back nine,” said Seo.
Seo’s great outing was the catalyst to another dominant day on the course for Timpview’s girls golf team which won easily with a two-day 619. Alta finished second with a 698, followed by Olympus in third with a 724.
Timpview sisters Emma and Rachel Lillywhite finished tied for third at 150, while Timpview’s fourth golfer, Keilani Hanamaikai, finished in 20th with a 182.
“We showed up yesterday and played really well across the board and I was really proud of my girls the way they came out and posted a good score yesterday. It made today a lot of fun to watch my girls go out and play,” said Timpview coach Jeff Ward.
