North Shore GC
A scramble is played by a team of four players
where each member hits their ball throughout
the match. The team choose the best shot from
the first stroke and use the same spot for each
player. After completing one round, the team
engages in another stroke where they select one
location and play the balls from there. The process
continues until all 18 holes are completed.

THE NGUYỄN SISTERS
Nguyễn is the most common surname in Vietnam. The best way to explain the pronunciation of Nguyễn is as a single syllable: ngwin. Say it fast and don’t emphasize the letters “ng”.
This sisterhood was formed by a little girl named Lily, participating in her first golf program with The First Tee LPGA-USGA Girls’ Golf program. There, she met a teenager named Lauryn, volunteering as a junior coach with Girls’ Golf. When Lily found out that they shared the same last name, she quickly took to Lauryn and introduced Lauryn to everyone as “Chị Lauryn.” In the Vietnamese language, “Chị” means “elder sister.”
The two L. Nguyen’s reconnected at District 6 tournaments and their sisterhood grew to include Sofia (Lily’s older sister), Maya and Kylie (Lily’s cousins), and Brianna (their longtime friend). They became a family – texting each other encouragements before tournaments, traveling to golf events together, and most importantly, making bubble tea runs together.
The girls also share similar life experiences. They are first-generation Americans, born to Vietnamese refugee parents who escaped war-torn Vietnam. They share a humble upbringing, understanding everything their parents have endured, sacrificed, and fought for to provide them with the opportunity to pursue the sport they love.
“It is a privilege to be able to play competitive golf. It takes a lot of time, resources, and support. For me to be able to pursue this game for over a decade, to make it to some of junior golf’s most elite tournaments, speaks to a level of privilege that I’m not sure I will ever be able to pay back,” states Lauryn.
To that end, the Nguyen sisters teamed up to organize the Nguyen Junior Am Fundraising Tournament, to give back to local non-profits. Proceeds from the 2023 Nguyen Junior Am will benefit Friends of Little Sài Gòn, and The First Tee of Greater Seattle.
“First Tee has allowed me to grow so much in my game while making great friendships, having fun, and learning grit & determination. I’m inspired to give back to such amazing organizations,” exclaims Maya.
