Weekend wrap-up (May 27)


AJGA alumni dominated the 2014 Airbus LPGA Classic Presented by JTBC with five players: Jessica Korda, Anna Nordqvist, Michelle Wie, Jenny Shin and Stacy Lewis, placing in the top 10.

Korda of Bradenton, Florida, won the event held at the Robert Trent Jones Golf Trail in Mobile, Alabama, by a stroke over Anna Nordqvist. 21-year-old Korda carded her second LPGA Tour victory this season, the first in January at the Pure Silk-Bahamas Classic, with a 20-under-par 268.

Before turning professional in December 2010, Korda played in AJGA tournaments from 2006-10 where she accumulated 11 top-10 finishes.  During her junior career, Korda was named first-team Rolex Junior All-American for three consecutive years from 2008-10.


Stanford’s Cameron Wilson claimed the 2014 NCAA individual title in a three-hole playoff over fellow AJGA alum Ollie Schniederjans who plays for Georgia Tech.  Wilson birdied the par-5 No. 17 to become Stanford’s first individual champion since Tiger Woods in 1996.

Prior to attending Stanford, Wilson competed in AJGA events from 2005-10. He had 12 top-10 finishes, including a victory at the 2009 Nationwide Insurance Junior presented by the Memorial Tournament. He also earned Rolex Junior All-America honors in 2008 and 2009. Tour

Byron Smith won the Rex Hospital Open with a 16-under-par 268 over the weekend. His 8-under-par 63 in the third round solidified his four-shot victory.

Before attending Pepperdine University, Smith competed in 11 AJGA events from 1997-99, notching three top-20 finishes.

Symetra Tour

AJGA alum Mallory Blackwelder secured her first professional win at the 2014 Symetra Classic in Charlotte, North Carolina, this past weekend with a 10-under-par 206. She pulled off the two-shot victory with a 5-under-par 67 on the final round.

In her two-year career with the AJGA , Blackwelder played in eight AJGA tournaments and carded three top-10 finishes.  In 2004, she won the Natural Resource Partners Bluegrass Junior and was named an honorable mention Rolex Junior All-American. 

Blackwelder began her collegiate career at the University of Florida before transferring to the University of Kentucky when her mom, who played on the LPGA Tour, became the Women’s Golf Coach at Kentucky.
