Lake Worth's Alexa Pano is 13 years old and is all ready one of the best junior golfers in the world.

Last week she played in an LPGA Tour event, and beat some professionals.

This week she played in Lexington, Kentucky at the Junior PGA Championship, and once again played up to the competition. Pano shot her first career 64 on Tuesday in the second round, and finished with a 67 on Thursday, finishing fourth overall.

There was no other player her age that finished in the top 25, and she's three years younger than champion Yealimi Noh. Pano shot an incredible 17 under par, but finished seven strokes behind Noh, who went into the final round with a seven stroke lead.

Pano's highlight of the day came on the 17th hole, where she chipped in from off the green for eagle.
