Corpuzs Numbers Say it All!


REUNION, Fla. – Age is just a number, and the numbers say it all for junior girls golfer Allisen Corpuz.

Allisen’s age, which makes her the youngest player in the field at last week's Annika Invitational, alongside one other 12-year-old, Hannah O’Sullivan. Corpuz turns 13 on March 7.

The number of miles Allisen and her father traveled from their home in Honolulu, Hawaii to the AJGA event outside Orlando. Luckily, she’s mastered the airplane catnap. 

“As long as I’m tired I can just knock out,” Corpuz said.

T26: Where Allisen finished at the Annika Invitational after rounds of 74-78-73.

66: The second-round score of 18-year-old Celine Boutier of France, who won the Annika Invitational.

68: Allisen's best round, which she shot at age 11.

In inches, the height Corpuz stands. That’s 5-feet, 7 1/2-inches – a healthy height for a girl who’s not yet had her growth spurt. Neither her stature nor her game lack in maturity.

: The value of the coin with which she always marks her ball on the green – that’s a quarter, heads up. 

Her best round, which she shot at age 11.

In her first season with the AJGA, Allisen played in six events, finished in the top-5 four times and captured her first victory at the Quad Cities tournament in June 2010.

The amount of fear she has – none – on the topic of playing against an older field (girls 13 to 18). Not only does she lack intimidation, says she has the upper hand on her elders.

“Because I’m young, I feel there’s less pressure on me to play well. So it’s really just about going out and having fun. I don’t really have to worry about the pressure to play good golf.” 

In golf you let the numbers do the talking. It seems Allisen Corpuz’s numbers are just warming up their vocal chords.
