GGGA student Alice Jo’s 5-under 67 spurs victory at IMG Falcon’s Fire

GGGA student Alice Jo is hitting her stride in a big way.

Jo claimed the title for the second consecutive week after a birdie barrage at Falcon’s Fire that led to a 5-under 67 in the final round.

Sunday, Jo posted seven birdies in an eight-hole stretch from Nos. 3-10, including a stretch where she strung together five straight from Nos. 3-7 before posting a 5-under 67 at the IMG Junior Golf Tour event at Falcon’s Fire.

Jo, a student in the Full-Time Junior Program at the Gary Gilchrist Golf Academy, won the AJGA Gary Gilchrist Golf Academy Junior presented by Sportlink last weekend finishing that event at 2-under par.

Jo, of China and a 2018 grad, is also the reigning U.S. Women’s Public Links Amateur Champion and staked claim as the final amateur to win the event in 2014.

On the boys side of the draw, fellow GGGA student Johnny Hsu, of Taiwan was also making a run at a victory.

Hsu, opened with a 1-under 71 Saturday and posted a 2-under 70 Sunday to finish second, one shot back.
