Moultrie - South Georgia is showing its strength in junior golf.

Two Colquitt County High School seniors have signed golf scholarships.

Anna Leigh Keith has signed to play at Vanderbilt University.

Anna Leigh is one of the top juniors in the nation and qualified this summer for the United States Womens' Amateur and the United States Girls Amateur.

Clark Hendrick is staying close to home. Hendrick has signed at Valdosta State.

Hendrick was a member of Colquitt County's state championship team as a freshman and is looking forward to teaming up with good friends Collin Ho of Deerfield-Windsor and Trey McQuaig of Valdosta.

Clark Hendrick said. "I hope to be able to play and contribute. They are losing two top players. Hopefully, it will open up some spots for me and Collin and Trey."

Anna Leigh Keith said ."The SEC is a big deal because it is a really tough conference. They play a lot of tough teams. I have a lot of friends who have gone to SEC schools. It will be a lot of fun."

Anna Leigh Keith will be honored this spring as one of 12 all-American scholarship winners.
