Selena Costabile did something special on Wednesday.

The Thornhill, Ontario amateur golfer won a professional event on the National Women’s Golf Association tour at the Dubsdread Golf Course in Orlando, Florida.

The Ladies Golf Club of Toronto member topped a field of professionals and talented amateurs with scores of 65, 69, and 70 to win by one stroke.

Her -6 total on the historic golf course was highlighted by thirteen birdies over the three rounds of play. That included seven in her opening round (-5) on the par 70 layout.

Currently the 488th ranked amateur in the world, the 18 year-old is no stranger to pro events. She made a start in the 2016 Manulife LPGA Classic as a sponsor’s exemption. She missed the cut with scores of 81 and 78 but clearly, based on her play this week, she is getting more comfortable playing among the pros.

It all adds up to the possibility of a bright future of the young lady who has had plenty of wins in her young career, and appears to be poised for more.
