Scott Robertson Memorial
Moriya Jutanugarn of Bangkok, Thailand can now add back-to-back
titles to her resume. The 2011 Rolex
Junior All-American defended her title at the Scott Robertson Memorial in
Virginia on Sunday, May 20, finishing with a 9-under-par 204, two strokes ahead of Annie Park of
Jutanugarn, currently ranked No. 5 in the Polo Golf
Rankings, won the event in 2011 after setting a new tournament record of
16-under-par 197. With back-to-back
wins, Jutanugarn mirrors the success of AJGA alum Paula Creamer, who
won the event in 2002 and 2003.
Jutanugarn captured her first AJGA victory at the 2011
Winn Grips Heather Farr Classic hosted by Longbow Golf Club and has since
compiled five top-10 AJGA finishes, in addition to reaching the finals at the
2011 U.S. Women’s Amateur Championship.
Making his final appearance at the Scott Robertson
Memorial, Davis Womble of High Point, N.C., finished atop the leaderboard with
a 5-under-par 208 total. Womble, who won
the 13-14 Boys Division in 2008, finished with a three-stroke lead over Chad
Merzbacher of Dublin, Ohio to claim this year’s title.
With ten top-20 finishes, Womble signed a letter of
intent with Wake Forest University. This
win adds Womble to an impressive list of past champions of the event, including
AJGA alumni Hunter Mahan and Webb Simpson, also a former Wake Forest golfer.
AJGA junior Nathan Chuwait of Herndon, Va. Won the 13-14
Boys Division after posting rounds of 72-72-71 for a tournament total of 215.
