Jennifer Hahn

Jennifer Hahn is the latest young pro golfer to get her first win after turning professional on the Cactus Tour. Hahn's maiden pro win happened on June 10 at the Tour's Event No. 17 at Stallion Mountain in Las Vegas. Hahn, who turned pro earlier this year after playing NCAA golf at Vanderbilt, shot rounds of 71-72-70 to finish at 3-under 213. That was good for a one-stroke win over runner-up Chirapat Jao-Jivanil. A front-nine 33 (that included an eagle on the second hole) in the final round propelled Hahn to the victory. It had to be a particularly sweet victory for Hahn - even more than for "just" getting No. 1 - because it was a hometown victory. Hahn is from Las Vegas and played at Green Valley High School there. Hahn posted three Top 10 finishes in her recently completed senior season at Vanderbilt.

Paige Spiranac Gets Her First Win as a Pro

Paige Spiranac won for the first time as a professional golfer today on the Cactus Tour. It was Cactus Tour Event No. 16 , played at Orange Tree Golf Resort in Scottsdale, Ariz. Spiranac finished at 3-under 213 after closing with a 68, which was the second-best score posted (by anyone) during the event. That 213 total tied Spiranac with amateur phenom Hannah O'Sullivan (who shot 72 in the final round). O'Sullivan won on the Symetra Tour at age 16 and is a Curtis Cupper. She might only be 18 years old, but she's already a "name" player in the game. O'Sullivan and Spiranac advanced into a playoff, and Paige won it on the first extra hole. Spiranac has taken a lot of grief from a lot of quarters because of the way she first gained attention: as a social media star. And, in my humble opinion, almost all of that grief was unwarranted. Hey, if you want to be mad that Golf Digest puts a sexily dressed Spiranac on its cover, go right ahead. But be mad at Go
