Hannah Suh of San Jose, Calif., won the Joanne Winter Arizona Silver Belle on Dec. 30, finishing the 54-hole event at 6-under 210 at the ASU Karsten Golf Course in Tempe, Ariz.

Suh shot a final-round 5-under 67 to move from 15th to first in the final day of the tournament. The event is open to female amateurs ages 13-23.

Suh, a freshman at California, opened the college season by finishing T-2 with teammate Jacqueline Williams at the Washington State Cougar Cup. The Golden Bears won the team title.

“We’re really encouraged by Hannah’s play at the ASU Karsten Golf Course,” Cal head coach Nancy McDaniel said. “We travel to ASU to play in their event in April, and it really gives Hannah and our team a good boost going into the spring.”

Simin Feng, a junior golfer based in Orlando, Fla., who is headed to Vanderbilt next fall, finished tied for second with fellow junior Amy Lee of Brea, Calif. Both shot 5-under 211.

Alexandra Kaui, an Oklahoma signee from Las Vegas, tied for fourth with Krystal Quihuis of Tucson, Ariz., at 213.
