Michaela Morard of Huntsville, Alabama, notched her fifth AJGA tournament title at the Randy Wise Junior Open. The University of Alabama commit was dominant from the outset, as she fired a first-round 5-under-par 67 to break the competitive course record previously held by LPGA pro Morgan Pressel. From there, the three-time Rolex Junior All-American continued to cruise to earn a four-stroke wire-to-wire victory. Morard is currently No. 8 in the Rolex AJGA Rankings.

Kaleiya Romero of San Jose, California, went wire-to-wire at the Eagle Crest Junior Championship to earn her second AJGA tournament title of 2018.
