Cal's Hannah Suh wins Silver Belle title
Hannah Suh of San Jose, Calif., won the Joanne Winter Arizona Silver Belle on Dec. 30, finishing the 54-hole event at 6-under 210 at the ASU Karsten Golf Course in Tempe, Ariz.

Suh shot a final-round 67 (-5) to move from 15th to first in the final day of the tournament. The event is open to female amateurs between the ages of 13 and 23.

Suh is a freshman at California, who opened her first season by finishing T-2 with teammate Jacqueline Williams at the Washington State Cougar Cup. The Golden Bears won the team title.

“We’re really encouraged by Hannah’s play at the ASU Karsten Golf Course,” California head coach Nancy McDaniel said. “We travel to ASU to play in their event in April, and it really gives Hannah and our team a good boost going into the spring.”

After retiring from the diamond, she turned to golf and won the Arizona State Women's Championship in 1962.
