Potter quickly took the lead and never looked back ending the match by winning the 30th hole. The 16-year-old is committed to Arizona State University and has two AJGA wins in his junior career.

Sydney Yermish of Wynnewood, Pennsylvania, won in the Bell National Division of the Peggy Kirk Bell Girls Golf Tour Tournament of Champions.

Yermish has played in AJGA events since 2018 and has two top-5 finishes.

Tylor Chou of Los Altos, California, won in the Boys Division of the Future Champions National Tour Fall Series Tour Championship. Chou started with a 4-under 68 that included 7 birdies to take a two-stroke lead. A 4-over 76 in the final round left him at even-par for the tournament and got him into a playoff against David Cho. Chou would go on to win the playoff and earn the tournament title. Chou has played in three AJGA events with his best finish coming at the 2019 Explore Lompoc Preview at La Purisima where he finished T8.

Ann Buffolino of Burbank, California, overcame a five-stroke deficit to win in the Girls Division of the Future Champions National Tour Fall Series Tour Championship.
