One year after coming up just short, Yujeong Son of Norman, Oklahoma, came back to win at the Swinging Skirts AJGA Invitational in Rancho Santa Fe, California.

Son carded three birdies on the back nine to pull away at Rancho Santa Fe Golf Club and earned an exemption into the Swinging Skirts LPGA Taiwan Championship in October. This was Son's first AJGA Invitational victory.

Owens won the Female 12-19 Division with a 9-over-par 153 total, four strokes ahead of the field. Owens started her AJGA career in 2017 with a T2 finish at the AJGA Preview at Château Élan.
