Bulls Bay student wins first tournament
Wake Forest's Rachel Kuehn, who has worked for the past seven years with the teaching staff at the Ranch at Bulls Bay Golf Club, won her first college event and set new records in The Prestigious Annika Intercollegiate tournament at The Royal Golf Club in Minnesota.
Kuehn shot 67-67-69—203, 13-under-par, to win the individual title by five shots and help her team win by 14. It was the first time in Wake Forest women's golf history that a freshman won her first tournament and her score was the second-lowest 54-hole total in school history. Kuehn's mother, Brenda Kuehn, was a three-time All-American at Wake Forest.
