Chloe Holder of Williamston, S.C. has done it again. Today, Holder defended her title with a record-shattering 133 overall after firing off a 9-under-par, 64 in the final round.


To say Holder had an outstanding round is an understatement. She broke the 2020 junior girls’ championship record round of 66 by two strokes and broke the previous Vicki DiSantis Girls’ Championship record of 139 by six strokes. Everything in her game clicked just in time for the last CGA event of her junior career.


“My ball striking was solid today. I think I hit fifteen greens and I was hitting them pretty tight,” said Holder. “Then once I got to the green, if it was within eight feet I felt really confident.”


The two-time CGA Champion’s bogey-free round consisted of a 31 on the front nine and a 33 on the back nine with eight birdies in total. Despite knowing how well she was playing, Holder tried to put every birdie behind her along the way.


“Coming down the stretch it was definitely coming into mind that I was about to win, but I just had to push that aside and tell myself that there is a lot of golf to play,” said Holder. “I kept my pre-shot routine and my mindset the same before every shot on my way in and that really helped.”


After stepping off of the 18th green, the newly minted champion thanked her father, the staff and her competitors for the opportunity to capture her second CGA title. Holder remarked, “Honestly I don’t know if I can put into words just how great it feels. I put in a lot of hard work and dedication just to come out here and play these past two days so really it is surreal and I am so thankful.”


Isabella Rawl of Lexington, S.C. claimed runner-up after finishing the championship with an impressive 5-under-par, 139 total. Rawl was the only player to card an eagle this weekend. Third place and the only other finish under par was captured by Abby Franks of Roebuck, S.C. after a 2-under-par, 142 overall.


The CGA would like to extend a thank you to the members and staff of Pine Island Country Club for their hospitality in hosting the 15th Vicki DiSantis Girls’ Championship. We would also like to thank the players and spectators for their understanding and adherence to our COVID-19 tournament protocols.
