A North Carolina high school student shot 57 at her conference championship Tuesday. Yeah, you read that right. A 57. Five. Seven. Fifty-seven.

Meet Macy Godfather from Reagan High School who got the ridiculously low score to win the Central Piedmont 4-A Conference Championship. And she made it to the Bermuda Run West thanks to one birdie run ever.

The state’s top-ranked junior, Pate scored 14 birdies and finished 14 under on the par-71 course, which played 4,800 yards.

“I always hit my wedge strokes very close and my putter was hot, so it was a great combination,” she told the Winston-Salem Journal.

It was safe. How good was the performance? Pates senior teammate, Virginia Tech-tied Morgan Ketchum, shot 64. And lost with SEVEN.

Another teammate, Junior Anna Howerton, was another five shots back in third place. Needless to say, Reagan High School easily won the event.

Godfather broke the North Carolina high school record by four shots, breaking the mark set by current LPGA pro Jennifer Chang in 2017. The 57 is also a record for boy golfers in the state.

“It’s really hard to describe what was going on,” said Godfather. “I just hit the shots and tried to do the putts when I had a chance.”
