High school girls golf: McCall Uyematsu leads Box Elder Bees to first state championship
"I wasn't expecting it at all, to be perfectly honest," Anderson said of her memorable shot, which sailed some 120 yards and then rolled backward into the cup. "I thought I hit it long but it rolled down the hill and it went in and I was like, 'Whoo!'
"It went, I would say, like 15 yards past the green and it got on top of the hill and hit this bare patch and just rolled right back in.
"When I hit it, it was like 'Dang, I hit it too far,' and then it rolled and I couldn't see it," she said. "And then everyone started cheering and I was like all right, I'll take it.' I'm glad it's at state — it's awesome; it's wickedly awesome."
And on Wednesday at The Barn, so were Uyematsu and the Bees.
