Rauch wins IMG Idaho Junior World Qualifier
CALDWELL, ID —
Moscow High’s Makena Rauch finished first in the IMG Idaho Junior World Qualifier on Monday.
Rauch, who is only 15-years-old, shot an even par 72 to beat the nearest competitor by two strokes in the 15 to 18-year-old age group.
The tournament was held at Timberstone Golf Course in Caldwell, Idaho over the weekend.
The sophomore beat Idaho’s 5A state champion, the 4A state champ who Rauch finished second to just three weeks ago, as well as the 3A and 2A champs.
Winning this match has qualified Rauch for the IMG World Championships in San Diego in July.
Only the top two advance from each age group.
