AUGUSTA, Ga. – Augusta University head women's golf coach Caroline Hegg picked up freshman Natalia Yoko from Jakarta, Indonesia in the National Letter of Intent (NLI) early signing period. Yoko will compete with the Jaguars in 2018-19 season.
Name: Natalia Yoko
Hometown / Previous School: Jakarta, Indonesia / SMA 1 PSKD
"Yoko will be a great addition to our team next year," Hegg said. "Not only is she an accomplished player with great results, but she loves to compete as much as any young golfer I've seen. I have no doubt she will be successful in the classroom and on the course as a Jaguar."
Yoko attended the SMA 1 PSKD high school in her hometown of Jakarta, Indonesia. Lettering in golf for two years, she finished second at the 2017 Jabar Open, while also competing with DKI to win gold at the 2016 Pekan Olahraga National (PON).
