Weekend wrap-up

AJGA alumni had a strong showing on the PGA, LPGA, and Nationwide Tours this weekend as Jason Dufner, Azahara Munoz, and Nick Flanagan won tournaments.
Jason Dufner secured his second PGA victory at the Byron Nelson Championship in Irving, Texas, on Sunday. Dufner birdied the final hole to avoid going to a playoff, having already claimed a victory at the Zurich Classic in a playoff against Ernie Els. Dufner’s AJGA career included five tournaments in 1994 and 1995.
At the Sybase Match Play Championship, Azahara Munoz defeated 1999 Rolex Junior Player of the Year Candie Kung, 2 and 1, in the championship match. Munoz competed in the Thunderbird International Junior twice, finished sixth in 2004 and second in 2005. After graduating from Arizona State in 2009, Munoz turned pro and was named 2010 LPGA Tour Rookie of the Year.
Seven of the eight quarterfinalists were AJGA alumni, including four Rolex Junior Players of the Year: Candie Kung; Julieta Granada (2004); Morgan Pressel (2005); and Vicky Hurst (2007). Stacy Lewis and Anna Nordqvist round out the list AJGA alumni in the quarterfinals.
For Nick Flanagan, his win at the BMW Pro-Am was the first of the year. If he can maintain his current position on the money list, Flanagan stands a chance at moving to the PGA TOUR in 2013. Flanagan finished T11 at Thunderbird International Junior in 2002.
