Arlington Martin junior captures Fort Worth Junior Girls golf title

Trinity King left no doubt Wednesday as she dominated the field for the third consecutive day in winning the Fort Worth Junior Girls golf championship by 23 strokes.

King, 15, an incoming junior at Arlington Martin, shot a 5-under-par 67 from the silver tees (5,712 yards) at Mansfield National to finish with a 10-under total of 205 over three courses.

The only remaining drama Wednesday was how many shots King would win by and who would finish second.

Stephanie Lee, 15, of Southlake Carroll answered the latter question after shooting a 74 to finish at 228, 23 shots back of King. Aysis Azarcon, 15, and Michelle Zhou, 15, tied for third at 233 after each shot a 76 at Mansfield National.

King, who has committed to TCU, opened the tournament with a 6-under 65 Monday at Shady Valley followed by a 1-over 73 Tuesday at Ridglea.

On Wednesday, she made her only bogey on the 502-yard, par-5 sixth hole. King made up for that lone mistake with four birdies and an eagle on the 478-yard, par-5 13th.

King, who has advanced to the UIL Class 6A golf tournament in her first two years at Martin, also captured the city tournament two years ago at age 13.
