Player diary: Bethany Wu (Part 5)

Bethany Wu at the Annika Invitational.

Hi, everyone!

For my first blog of 2014, I have big news! Last week, I played in the AJGA Annika Invitational at Reunion Resort in Orlando, Fla. I shot 9-under 207 (68-68-71) to win by eight shots. That week went by so fast that it didn’t really sink in that I won until after the tournament. Honestly, I shocked myself because the week before the tournament, I was hitting shots left and right, and I really was just hoping for maybe a top-10 finish. On the final day, there was a fog delay, which sort of got me off ...

Bethany Wu becomes the first player to win back-to-back Annika Invitational titles at Reunion Resort on Jan. 20.

ORLANDO, Fla. –– Bethany Wu is not a “sincerely” or “affectionately yours” kind of gal. In the monthly blog Wu keeps for Golfweek, she dutifully tracks the life of an elite junior golfer. Each post is signed with her tagline: Whistles go Wu Wu.

Wu, 17, laughs when asked where that phrase came from. She admits it was something she picked up at the Junior Solheim Cup in the fall – an AJGA staff member said it to her and it had a nice ring to it.

A year ago, it was Wu’s Annika Invitational victory that made her more than ...

REUNION, Fla. – After signing their scorecards for second round action at the Annika Invitational on Jan. 19, Nicole Morales, Lakareber Abe and Cheyenne Knight could be found eating together, sharing laughs and donning Alabama gear, of course.

The trio of Crimson Tide commits is more than just a group of future teammates – it’s a group of friends.

The bond started early for Abe and Morales when they met at Doral as kids. But the three golfers came together for good at the Thunderbird International Junior last May. Morales played the part of recruiter and Knight was all ears.

REUNION, Fla. – It took 32 holes for Bethany Wu to pull it off.

She finally managed to record a bogey at the Annika Invitational when she missed a putt on the par-5 14th hole Sunday.

Wu shot a second straight 4-under 68 at Reunion Resort, creating more distance between herself and the field.

“I like the greens out here. For some reason, I always play well here. My second shots into the green are always really good,” Wu said after nabbing birdies on two of her final four holes. “Approach shots were really great today. Driving was not as great ...
