Sierra Sims

Sierra Sims, of Austin, Texas, shot 5-over 184 (74-78-32) at Gleneagles CC in Plano, Texas, and won the the girls division of the Under Armour/Hunter Mahan Championship in a two-hole sudden-death playoff, after the final round was shortened to nine holes due to weather delays.

Sims won the playoff with an up-and-down par on the second hole. She said she wasn’t nervous on the first hole, but on the second “I hit it out [of the bunker] to about 12 feet, and I was shaking on my putt because I was so nervous, but I made that putt.”

Sims, No. 20 in the Golfweek/Sagarin rankings for the class of 2013, also won last week’s Goodman Networks Junior at Traditions.
