The San Diego Hall of Champions Sports Museum announced this week that UCLA freshman golfer Tiffany Joh was named one of the Breitbard Stars of the Month for April. Joh joined 15 other San Diego area natives honored by the Breitbard Hall of Fame.
Joh, 19, leads the second-ranked Bruins in scoring average at 72.2 and ranks sixth nationally this week. Last month, she helped lead the Bruins to their third straight Pac-10 title and tied for third place individually. She was named First-Team All-Pac-10 and 2006 Pac-10 Newcomer of the Year.
This season, Joh has finished among the Top 20 individuals in each of her seven collegiate appearances. She has also recorded five Top 10 finishes.
Other San Diego area athletes who were honored included PGA TOUR professional Phil Mickelson, who won his second Masters title Apr. 9, former UCLA distance All-American and 2004 Olympic marathon silver medalist Meb Keflezighi and Los Angeles Lakers forward Luke Walton.
