Central Valley High School varsity girls golf standout Amelia Daoheung didn’t play to her potential at the Sac-Joaquin Section Division-III Tournament on Oct. 22 in Atwater.
“My goal was to shoot in the 90s,” she said. “I didn’t meet my goal. I could have done a lot better if I didn’t overthink. I just needed to slow down and not rush everything.”
Daoheung tied for 26th place with a score of 105 at Rancho Del Rey Golf Course.
“Seeing the other girls play, it was intimidating. They’re consistent in everything. I felt pressure to do well. I couldn’t hit the ball straight. My aim was off.”Amelia Daoheung

Daoheung represented the Hawks at Divisionals for the second straight season.
“It’s cool to qualify both years,” said Daoheung, who placed fifth at the 2018 Central California Conference Championsips. “I thought I wasn’t going to make it this year because the competition in our league was tougher.”
Daoheung will be vying for her first-ever trip to Masters during her junior year.
“I’ve decided to take private lessons,” she said. “I want to improve my game.”
