St. Charles North Lillie wins 90th WWGA National Jr. Championship

Posted: Updated:

MADISON, Wis. (WKOW) -- Two Chicago area junior golfers settled the score in the finals of the WWGA National Jr. Championship Friday afternoon at Blackhawk Country Club. 

St. Charles North senior Kate Lillie and New Trier sophomore Penelope Tir fought through seven rounds of match-up (including two practice rounds) to make it to the final pairing. Lillie took a two-hole lead from the start and would never allow Tir to get closer than one-hole back. Lillie took the victory by sinking her final putt on the 17th.

The pair have played each other at the Illinois state girls golf tournament as well as a few summer tournaments. 

Lillie is committed to play for the University of Minnesota in the fall of 2017.
