South Pointe senior Jaelyn Tindal was named the South Carolina Junior Golf Association Beth Daniel Female Player of the Year for the 2014 season.
Tindal started the season No. 13 in the Heritage Classic Foundation’s rankings, and steadily moved up throughout the year. She moved into the top spot in July and never relinquished, finishing with a 226-point margin over second-placed Lauren Stephenson, from Lexington.
Tindal, who is graduating early from South Pointe to enroll at Mercer University where she will play golf, will be honored in a presentation hosted by Beth Daniel, the former LPGA player for whom the award is named. The presentation will take place at the Country Club of Charleston on Monday, Dec. 22 at 10 a.m. Daniel, the Tindal family, staff of the SCJGA, and media will be present; junior golf supporters are welcome to attend.
Tindal won eight SCJGA tournaments this year, including a career-low round of 68 during the PKGBT Metrolina Class. Tindal finished in the top-five in 15 SCJGA events and also tied for fourth in the South Carolina High School League 3A state championship, helping South Pointe to its first ever team title. Tindal also played in the North-South All-Star tournament.
