The Louisiana Junior Golf Tour member spotlight is a monthly article highlighting the strong talent in our state.

Our November junior golfer to be featured is Sarah Knight of Sterlington. Sarah is a rising senior at Ouachita Christian School, and has been a member of the Louisiana Junior Golf Tour (LJGT) since its inception in 2019. Sarah won the 2021 Sam Burns Junior Four-Ball with partner Sarah Meral, the LJGT at Querbes Park, and the LJGT Tour Championship. She was also runner-up at the David Toms Championship and the Louisiana Girls’ Junior Championship. All of this helped lead her to be the 2021 LJGT Player of the Year. Sarah has signed to continue her golf journey at the University of Louisiana at Monroe (ULM) after high school.

I would definitely be a driver because its my fav in the bag.
