Check out the latest #InspiredPerformances from AJGA members and alumni.

Alessia Nobilio of Rozzano (MI), Italy, won the 90th Portuguese International Ladies Amateur Championship by an impressive eight strokes. The UCLA commit carded four-straight rounds in the 60s to help her get to a tournament total of 15-under-par 273. Although she didn’t lead after the first round, Nobilio continued to play consistently and quickly found herself at the top of the leaderboard in the second round. Her final round of 4-under-par 68 was more than enough to leave the competition far behind and get the win. Nobilio was a member of the 2019 European Junior Solheim Cup team and is No. 3 in the World Amateur Golf Ranking.

Maxwell Ford and David Ford of Peachtree Corners, Georgia, carded a tournament total of 18-under-par 126 to take home the title at the Southeastern Junior Golf Tour (SJGT) Four-Ball. After the first round, the brothers found themselves in a tie for first with a 7-under-par 65. However, it would be in the final round where the pair would make their mark on the tournament. They recorded a bogey-free 11-under 61 that included nine birdies and an eagle to win the tournament by six strokes. David Ford is No. 35 in the Rolex AJGA Rankings and is a verbal commit to the University North Carolina, Chapel Hill. Maxwell Ford is No. 14 in the Rolex AJGA Rankings and is a verbal commit to the University of Georgia.

Morgan Ellison of Peachtree City, Georgia, won the Girls Division title of the SJGT Four-Ball with her partner Ally Francis. The duo took an early two-shot lead after a first round of 4-under-par 68 that included six birdies. Ellison and Francis had a tough start to their final round but rebounded on the back nine to finish with a 1-over-par 73. They would win by one stroke and finish the tournament at 3-under 141. 2019 was Ellison’s first season with the AJGA and she picked up her first win at the 2019 AJGA Preview at Château Élan.

Garrett Endicott of San Antonio, Texas, won the Tour Championship Invitational in the Boys 15-18 Division after shooting a 5-under-par 139 for the tournament. Endicott’s first round of 2-under-par 70 left him three shots off the lead heading into the final round but that didn’t deter him. A strong second round score of 3-under-par 69 that included two birdies and an eagle earned him the win by one shot. Endicott has played in AJGA events since 2016 and earned his career best AJGA finish last season when he finished T5 at the 2019 AJGA Junior All-Star presented by Explore York.
