My Scotty Cameron Moment

Nicholas Scott poses with his Scotty Cameron putter cover and tournament trophy after earning his first AJGA victory at the Nemacolin Junior Classic.
Each week, the AJGA honors one boy and one girl at every AJGA tournament who shoot the low final-round score. Below we hear from players at recent events as they recount the defining moment of their round.

Burgett H. Mooney, Jr. Rome Classic

"When I birdied Nos. 4 and 5, it got me going and I just kept making pars," said Noah West, who posted a 3-under-par 68. "The key part was my putting today."

“I played very consistent today. I was straight off the tee and I birdied two of the three par-5s," said Janie Jackson after carding a 2-under-par 69 to finish in third place. "It was an overall good day. I made a bunch of pars and I was hitting good approach shots and one-putting a lot of them.”

Cleveland Junior Open

 “I finally got some putts to fall today and helped me to shoot a 3-under-par 69,” said Andrew Fogg after earning a runner-up finish. “I was pretty happy with my round. I hit the ball well so it was nice to finally see it turn out. It’s a tough course, only two red numbers all week.”
“I actually played really good today and my iron shots were amazing,” said Pei Chun Chen of her 2-under-par 70 and second-place finish. “I just couldn’t make a putt, that’s it. I tried not to think too much about finishing in the top three, I was just trying to get the head cover!”

Nemacolin Junior Classic
"I started off with birdies on my first two holes which gave me a lot of confidence going in,” said Boys Division champion, Nicholas Scott. “I felt pretty good about my swing and my game."
"I hit eight greens on the front and six or seven on the back so those moments really helped me shoot a 71 today,” said Connor Tendall after his 1-under-par round.

“I was driving the ball well off the tee,” said Brian Starker, who finished three shots back of Scott. “I hit about 13 or 14 fairways. I also made a double on the third hole but was able to birdie No. 4 so that was nice to cruise in from there."

"After I bogeyed the second hole I birdied the third and fifth hole,” said Juliet Vongphoumy, who posted a 1-under-par 71 to claim her first AJGA title. “On No. 3 my putt was uphill about 10 feet and made it. On No. 5 my second shot was in the rough, but I hit my next shot within 10 feet. It was good after I had a bad hole to bounce back."
