The Oregon signee won a Cactus Tour event at Sun City Country Club in Sun City, Arizona. Wilson shot 3-under 69 in the final round to take the top prize in the professional arena, beating former San Jose State golfer Antonia Malate by two shots.

More impressive was Wilson’s finish, where she birdied her final three holes and went 5-under 31 coming home to claim the trophy. She had 14 birdies in the 54-hole event.

Wilson also beat 2020 AIG Women’s Open champion Sophia Popov, who finished fourth six shots behind the amateur.

Two summers ago, Wilson won the 2022 U.S. Girls’ Junior. Last year, she claimed medalist honors at the same tournament. Now, she has won a professional tournament before starting her college career.
