This South Carolina high school golfer isn't just playing against the boys — she's beating them

Distance is rarely a problem for the No. 1 golfer at Broome High School in this upstate Carolina city.

Hanna Webber can bomb it.

That’s where the similarities to her competition ends, though. Webber, a junior who moved into the Centurions’ No. 1 spot this season, plays with the boys team since the school doesn’t field a girls golf program.

She said she wouldn’t have it any other way.

“I hit it pretty far for a girl, anyway,” she said. “I like playing from the white tees instead of the reds. I’d really rather do this. I’d rather play with the boys.”
