Tom Gueant of Grenoble, France, won the 93rd R&A Boys’ Amateur Championship defeating Wilmer Ederö after a thrilling match that was decided on the 37th hole. Before he got to the championship, Gueant finished T4 in the stroke-play portion to earn his spot in match play and eventually made it to the final match. Through the first 18 holes of the championship match he was 2-up but that lead quickly disappeared and he found himself down two with two holes to play. Gueant would go on to win holes 35 and 36 to extend and then birdied the 37th hole to win and become the first Frenchman to do so since 1960. The 17-year-old played in one AJGA event, the 2017 evian® International & Senior Showcase (Senior Boys), where he finished T12.

Katherine Schuster of Kill Devil Hills, North Carolina, won the Girls Division of the Beth Daniel Junior Azalea after her consistent play led to a tournament total of 1-under-par 212 and four-stroke victory. She carded rounds of even-par 71 and 1-under-par 70 in the first and second rounds to put her in position to win. Her final-round even-par 71 was enough to keep her at the top of the leaderboard. Schuster is a verbal commit to Clemson University and has four top-10 finishes.

Jack Lundin of Sioux Falls, South Dakota, won the South Dakota Golf Association’s Men’s Amateur Championship with a tournament total of 7-under-par 209. Lundin carded back-to-back, 4-under-par 68s in the second and final rounds to win by two strokes. In his three years of playing in AJGA tournaments, Lundin has three top-10 finishes with his best finish coming at the 2019 Bass Pro Shops / Payne Stewart Junior Championship where he finished T3.

Hoi Ki Lau of Hong Kong, China, won the Hong Kong Junior Open Championship by an impressive nine strokes. The 15-year-old shot three rounds in the 70s to run away from the field and earn the title. Lau has played in three AJGA events and her career-best finish was T2 at the 2019 Mahoning Valley Hospital Foundation Junior All-Star.
