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

Casey Jarvis of Freeway Park, South Africa, dominated the South African Stroke Play Championship winning by nine shots and carding four-straight rounds in the 60s. Jarvis took the lead after his second round of 7-under-par 65 and didn’t look back. A bogey-free 65 in the final round that included five birdies and an eagle earned Jarvis the title of youngest South African Stroke Play Champion in the event’s 51-year history. He finished the tournament at an impressive 25-under-par 263. Jarvis is a member of the class of 2022 and was in the 2019 Junior PLAYERS Championship.

Ashley Yen of Houston, Texas, won the Texas Girls’ Invitational by two strokes to earn her first Legends Junior Tour victory. Yen’s even-par 72 in the first round left her two shots off the lead but a strong 3-under-par 69 in the second round vaulted her to the top of the leaderboard. She would close with a 1-over 73 to win by three strokes and finish the tournament at 2-under 214. Yen has one AJGA win at the 2018 AJGA Preview at The Republic and is No. 265 in the Rolex AJGA Rankings.

Maya Benita of Tucson, Arizona, won the Girls Fisher-Bryan Invitational after defeating Mattison Frick in a playoff. Despite a tough first round of 2-over-par 73, Benita finished the tournament with a 2-under 69 to finish tied for the lead at even-par 142. The 2019 Scholastic Junior All-American would sink a birdie putt on the first playoff hole to win. Benita is a University of Arizona commit and earned her best AJGA finish last season when she finished runner-up at the 2019 AJGA Hale Irwin Colorado Junior.

Brady Haake of Gilbert, Arizona, carded an impressive tournament total of 7-under-par 135 to win in the Boys Division of the Fisher-Bryan Invitational. He began the tournament with an even-par 71 to get within two shots of the lead and then shot the lowest round of the tournament in the final round with a 7-under 64 to win by six strokes. Haake’s best AJGA finish came in 2019 at the Folds of Honor Junior Championship hosted by Bob Estes where he finished T12.
