My Scotty Cameron Moment

Zach Zaback receives his Scotty Cameron putter cover from Vermont Governor Jim Douglas at the Killington Junior Golf Championship.
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.

Randy Wise Junior Open

“I made putts on the front nine,” said Jake McBride of Hartville, Ohio, after posting a 5-under-par 67. “I almost aced No. 3. The ball flew into the bottom of the cup and then popped out about 20 feet. I had a great birdie putt on No. 4 which definitely kick started my round. I ran in a 45-50 footer on No. 6 and then birdied Nos. 7 and 9 to go 4-under-par on the front. I made some close wedge shots on the back and made some quality shots. I am really excited about getting the Scotty Cameron cover because I don’t even have a putter cover, so I definitely have been wanting one.”

"My putting was consistently good all week,” said Ashley Armstrong of Flossmoor, Ill.,
after a 1-over-par 73. “My irons were good today, I was able to utilize them well."

"My putting saved me today,” said Lauren Grogan of Columbus, Ohio. “No. 9 was really hard, especially with the wind and the narrow fairway, but I was able to make a birdie. It was great to shoot 1-under-par on the front nine."

Killington Junior Golf Championship

"I hit the ball well and made a lot of putts,” Zach Zaback of Farmington, Conn., said after a 5-under-par 66 and third-place finish. “I also had a little bit of luck. I was 5-under-par on the front so I was just trying to grind it out on the back. It feels good to shoot my personal best in a tournament like this. My best hole was No. 6. I holed out from 30 or 40 yards for eagle. It got me excited and I wanted to keep that momentum going."


"My best hole was No. 17,” said Jacquelyn Eleey of Quincy, Mass., of her 1-over-par 72 round. “I made a 30-foot putt for birdie to get back to even. It felt good and I was excited."

Stockton Sports Commission Junior Open

“I reached my goal of getting a win this summer and it feels nice to now have two,” Boys Division Champion Beau Hossler of Rancho Santa Margarita, Calif., said after a final-round 5-under-par 67.  “Coming from behind, I had no expectations to win."

“I was just trying to treat this like any other round and stay focused,” said Girls Division Champion Hannah O’Sullivan of Cupertino, Calif., who became the fourth-youngest player to win an AJGA event. ”I just took one shot at a time and didn’t want to worry about scores or rankings.”
