OAKLAND — An example of Emily Childs' composure Monday at Lake Chabot Golf Course was evident on the 15th hole at the Bay Shore Athletic League championships.
With her ball nestled near steel netting to the left of the fairway, the Alameda High junior calmly sent a shot on the ground back onto the fairway, and eventually saved par.
She won the individual title with a 1-under-par 70, nine strokes better than both Joy Kim of Albany and Mia Kabasakalis of College Prep, who tied for second.
"I hit everything straight, and I was hitting greens. I didn't make very many long putts — but I was hitting straight. I didn't hit any bad drives," said Childs, who was consistent with a score of 34 on the front nine and 36 on the back nine.
UPDATE: Childs fired a 72 to take 3rd place at NCS tourney.
