High school student shoots 57 to BLOW AWAY LPGA state record!

The name Macy Pate will forever be remembered in the history of High School golf across the United States of America.

Macy attends Reagan High School in North Carolina, she is a sophomore and she incredibly shot a 57 to blow the rest of the competition out of the water.

She was competing in the Central Piedmont 4-A conference championship at the Bermuda Run west course where she shot an amazing card of 14-under-par.

Needless to say, Macy is ranked as the top junior girl in the state and she showed this by making 14 birdies on the 4,800-yard course.

Macy plays on an incredibly talented side at Reagan High School. Her teammate Morgan Ketchum shot a round of 64, but still lost by seven shots.

If you hadn't guessed already, Reagan High School won the event and Macy broke the record 18-hole score of the North Carolina High School Athletic Association.

The previous record had been set by LPGA professional Jennifer Chang in 2017, but Macy blew this out the water by four shots. She also beat the boy's record in the state.

"I just kept hitting my wedge shots really close, and my putter was hot, so it was a great combination,” Macy told the Winston-Salem Journal.

"It’s really hard to describe what was going on. I just sort of hit the shots and tried to make the putts when I had chances."
