Pearl City professional Mari Chun stormed past the field this week, winning a National Women’s Golf Association (NWGA) tournament on the Legends Course at Morongo Golf Club.

Chun’s five under par 211 was capped by Thursday’s five under 67 that put her 11 shots clear of Emily Tubert and Danielle Mullin.

The winner, a former Stanford University All-American, opened the 54-hole event with rounds of 71-73, and took the first place check of $1,350.

Tubert, the 2010 U.S. Public Links Champion and a contestant on Golf Channel’s Big Break Myrtle Beach, posted rounds of 78-69-75 for six over par 222. Mullin, who captured the 2015 New York State Mid-Amateur title, recorded 74-73-75, also for 222.

The NWGA Tour, based in Winter Park, Fla., just outside Orlando, now brings its California Series to Hidden Valley Golf Club in Norco, Calif., March 8-10.
