Tournament Storylines

Young event, strong history
The Stockton Convention and Visitors Bureau Junior Open has produced an impressive list of past champions who have gone on to find success at the junior and amateur levels. Jenny Shin of Torrance, Calif., won the inaugural event in 2008. The now LPGA professional was best known in her junior career for defeating Vicky Hurst to win the 2006 U.S. Girls' Junior. In 2010, Beau Hossler of Mission Viejo, Calif., earned his second of four AJGA career victories. The red shirt freshman at Texas most recently made headlines at the 2012 U.S. Open where he briefly held sole possession of the lead during the third round at The Olympic Club. That same year, Hannah O'Sullivan of Paradise Valley, Ariz., won the girls title. O'Sullivan became the fourth-youngest player to qualify for the U.S. Women's Open in 2012. With his win in 2012, Jacob Solomon of Dublin, Calif., captured his third consecutive title to add his name to the AJGA boys record book in a tie for most consecutive wins in a season.
