Six PKB Alumna received the tremendous honor of participating in the second Augusta National Women’s Amateur last week. PKB Alumna Gina Kim, Rachel Kuehn, Tristyn Nowlin, Emilia Migliaccio, Aneka Seumanutafa joined current tour member Amanda Sambach (Davidson, NC 2021) to represent the swinging girl. Gina Kim and Emilia Migliaccio made the cut, with Kim finishing T13 at six-over-par.

Earlier in the week, Emilia announced that she would forgo a professional career and remain an amateur. With her mother on the bag all week, the Wake Forest standout found herself among the top of the leaderboard thanks to her final round 70 (-2).  Migliaccio eventually lost in a playoff to winner Tsubasa Kajitani on the eighteenth hole.

About the PKBGT

Founded in 2007 by Girls Golf of America, a non-profit 501(c)(3) charitable organization, a local girls’ golf tour in the Triad region of North Carolina.  The tour began as a simple concept: create more effective competitive playing opportunities for girls. By utilizing innovative yardage-based divisions instead of the traditional age-based format, the tour focused on developing tournament experience at the player’s pace. The 2020-21 season will feature over 110 tournaments in 10 states on the East Coast, and with over 1,000 members, the PKBGT is the largest girl’s only tour in the country.  Learn more about the PKBGT at http://www.pkbgt.org/.
