High school girl fires 57 in conference championship after being named USA Today's best from North Carolina

Macy Pate, ranked as the best high school girl golfer in North Carolina in the first national USA TODAY High School Sports Awards, set Bermuda Run West Country Club ablaze Tuesday, shooting a 14-under 57.

This, as you can imagine, easily won Pate the individual title at the Central Piedmont 4-A Conference championships.

On the par-71, 4,800-yard layout, Pate birdied 14 of the 18 holes, setting the North Carolina High School Athletic Association’s scoring record. Her 57 wasn’t just the girls record — it also beat the lowest boys score in NCHSAA history.

“I started on No. 7 and got off to a good start by making birdie on three of the first four holes,” she said. “But I just kept hitting my wedge shots really close, and my putter was hot, so it was a great combination.”

Thanks to her 57, and a few teammate scores of 64 and 69, the Reagan High School Raiders took home the conference championship trophy.
