Han of Meadows Gardens won the B.C. bantam girls gold championship with a two round total of 138.

Euna Han came from behind to win the 2014 B.C. bantam girls golf championship in Chilliwack on Friday.

Han, a member at Meadow Gardens in Pitt Meadows, was third after the first day, then shot a two-under 68 on the second for a total of 138, or -2. She was the only female competitor under par.

The 12-year-old golfer bogeyed only a single hole during her final round on the way to claiming the title, and played with composure beyond her age.

She was pleased with her effort.

“I just tried to play my best the whole round. I didn’t know how the others were playing until the last couple of holes.”

She added that her putting was strong the second day.

“I missed a short putt on 16, but just continued on and forgot about it, and I was a bit lucky today – I hit a tree and came back to the fairway, so I was lucky.”

Han, of Coquitlam, finished eighth at last year’s bantam championship.
