Former Durant golfer Youngblood finishes 3rd in pro event
PARIS, Texas (KXII) - Former Durant golfer Sydney Youngblood finished tied for third in the Kathy Whitworth Paris Championship held at Paris Golf and Country Club.
Youngblood, a four time Class 5A state champion at Durant, was competing in just her second professional event. She shot 5 under par on the tournament, which was just two shots behind champion Celine Boutier. Youngblood shot 4 under par on the final day to push the leaders at the top.
“It’s great. I really had no expectations coming into this,” Youngblood said. “I just wanted to come out and play some really good golf and see how the cards fell. It was really just a step forward to see if this is something I can be good at and pursue hopefully full time.”
