Information provided by Kentucky Junior Golf -
2022 had already been memorable for Mayfield’s Kylie Miller after she qualified for the 2023 Drive, Chip & Putt National Finals in September, but her autumn has gotten even more illustrative after snagging the Girls 9 & Under Player of the Year title. Kylie follows in the footsteps of her sister Emlie who had won this award in 2021 and 2020. Three victories in eight starts on Tour is what propelled Kylie to the top, while runner-up finishes in each of her other starts ensured her Player of the Year triumph.
“I’m super happy to win Player of the Year,” said Miller. “The competition this year was really tough so to come out on top is really exciting. After Emlie beat me for Player of the Year each of the last couple years, it was a big goal of mine at the start of the season to win this award. I’m so glad I was able to pull it off. The biggest excitement I got this year in golf was winning the Drive, Chip & Putt Regional in all three stages to qualify for the opportunity to compete at Augusta next spring. Winning the first two majors of the season was really cool too. This offseason, I’m going to work on getting stronger and improve my chipping and putting.”
