Moriya Jutanugarn of Bangkok, Thailand can now add back-to-back titles to her resume. The 2011 Rolex Junior All-American defended her title at the Scott Robertson Memorial in Virginia on Sunday, May 20, finishing with a 9-under-par 204, two strokes ahead of Annie Park of Levittown, N.Y.
Jutanugarn, currently ranked No. 5 in the Polo Golf Rankings, won the event in 2011 after setting a new tournament record of 16-under-par 197. With back-to-back wins, Jutanugarn mirrors the success of AJGA alum Paula Creamer, who won the event in 2002 and 2003.
Jutanugarn captured her first AJGA victory at the 2011 Winn Grips Heather Farr Classic hosted by Longbow Golf Club and has since compiled five top-10 AJGA finishes, in addition to reaching the finals at the 2011 U.S. Women’s Amateur Championship.
Making his final appearance at the Scott Robertson Memorial, Davis Womble of High Point, N.C., finished atop the leaderboard with a 5-under-par 208 total. Womble, who won the 13-14 Boys Division in 2008, finished with a three-stroke lead over Chad Merzbacher of Dublin, Ohio to claim this year’s title.
With ten top-20 finishes, Womble signed a letter of intent with Wake Forest University. This win adds Womble to an impressive list of past champions of the event, including AJGA alumni Hunter Mahan and Webb Simpson, also a former Wake Forest golfer.
AJGA junior Nathan Chuwait of Herndon, Va. Won the 13-14 Boys Division after posting rounds of 72-72-71 for a tournament total of 215.
