Gonzalez holds on to lead, wins AJGA Junior at Oxmoor Valley presented by Nelson Brothers
Mitsunaga takes victory at Robert Trent Jones Golf Trail at Oxmoor Valley

BIRMINGHAM, Ala. — Juan Gonzalez III carded a final nine-hole round of 2-under-par 37 to win the AJGA Junior at Oxmoor Valley presented by Nelson Brothers with a tournament total of 3-under-par 180. Rinko Mitsunaga took the Girls Division title with a final-round 2-under-par 31, totaling a 2-over-par 179 for the tournament.

The AJGA Junior at Oxmoor Valley presented by Nelson Brothers was a 45-hole tournament conducted by the American Junior Golf Association on the Valley Course at the Robert Trent Jones Golf Trail at Oxmoor Valley in Birmingham, Ala. The event featured 51 boys and 20 girls, ages 12-18, from 13 states and South Korea. Due to inclement weather in the Birmingham area, the final round was condensed to a nine-hole stipulated round. The Boys Division played the par-39 Nos. 7-15 to 3,895 yards, while the Girls Division played Nos. 1-6 and Nos. 16-18 at par-33 and 2,538 yards.

This win marks Gonzalez's first AJGA victory. After having a rough summer, this win means a lot to Gonzalez and helps him round out his summer on a high note. Gonzalez attributes his three birdies and only one bogey to his focused mentality heading into the final round.

“I was just trying to play the course,” Gonzalez said. “I just wanted to break par or shoot par and I just wanted to play one shot at a time. I didn't really want to worry about anybody else.”

Tied for second place with a 2-over-par 185 were Tyler Shope of Wilsonville, Ala., Hunter Arnold of Lenoir City, Tenn., Will Cannon of Hoover, Ala., and Zack Jaworski of Alpharetta, Ga.

Mitsunaga had three birdies during the nine-hole final round. Her first AJGA win came at the AJGA Junior at Savannah Quarters in April and she is glad to have a second title.

“I didn't play well for a long time after that win, so it felt really nice to come back and make some putts and birdies,” Mitsunaga said. “I was in a slump for a while this summer and I just focused a lot more when I practiced and I practiced enough that it paid off. My mentality was a lot better than it started off this year.”

Alexandra Farnsworth of Nashville, Tenn., placed second with a 6-over-par 183. In third was Lauren Salazar of Santa Clara, Calif., who carded an 8-over-par 185.
