She had a decorated amateur career. A junior at Arcadia High School, she earned a spot on the Rolex Junior All-America First Team for the second consecutive year in 2015 (fourth time overall as a Rolex Junior All-American). The 17-year-old began the year with her first AJGA win at the ANNIKA Invitational aged 16, where she had a 12 under par record score, and never finished outside of the top 10. She finished in the top 10 back-to-back in June at the Rolex Girls Junior Championship and the Rolex Tournament of Champions. In other national events, she finished runner-up at the U.S. Girls’ Junior Championship, and in international play helped the U.S. team retain the PING Junior Solheim Cup with a 2-1-0 record.
She finished T55th in the 2013 Kraft Nabisco Championship as a 14-year-old. For a brief moment during the first round, Angel found herself leading after birdies on holes 1 and 2. This was Angel’s second career start in an LPGA Major after she qualified for the 2012 U.S. Women’s Open at the age of 13.
