Presley Baggett continues stellar summer on the links

MADISON, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

You can find SEC talent and prized pictures on the walls at Annandale. Presley Baggett's smile is right up there. The Germantown alum & LSU signee spent the 4th of July winning one of the biggest events in the country: The 40th North & South Junior triumph at Pinehurst No. 2.

Baggett won at the same course that Payne Stewart and other golf greats conquered. That's not the only connection.

"I was born on the day that he was in his plane and he passed away. (October 25th, 1999). So it was cool to be able to play the same course and be able to win it at that course. So I had a lot of fun. I was kinda thinking I was just going to take a picture with Payne's statue. But I didn't think I would have my trophy there. So it was a really cool experience and I really enjoyed it."

That picture is part of a summer for the record books. Presley won the Mississippi Women's Amateur on June 14th. Six days later, Baggett was named the NHSCA National High School Girls' Golfer of the Year.
