IMG Academy’s Nasiga Miura crowned champion in the Girls 15-18 division at the Summer Classic

Nasiga Miura recorded a big win over the weekend at Eagle Creek, earning an invitation to the HJGT Tour Championship

The IMG Academy golf program’s Nasiga Miura notched a four-over 150 over the weekend to win the Girls 15-18 division at the Summer Classic and receive an invitation to the 2013 Hurricane Junior Golf Tour Championship. Located at the Eagle Creek Golf Club in Orlando, Fla., the event was the HJGT's latest stop.

It was unclear who the champion would be until the final hole. Tied after the tenth hole on day two, Miura and Maho Hayakawa from Mexico City matched each other hole-for-hole until the challenging, par five, 18th. Reaching the fairway with her second shot, Miura shot close to the front right pin target as she faced a pitch shot over water to set up a possible birdie. She then made her par with two putts for the win. Topping Hayakawa’s five-over 151 by a single shot, Miura led the division in par four performance. Over the two day event, she averaged a 4.06, and completed 24 pars and four birdies.
