I had a chip-in on No. 5, said Lilia Vu of Fountain Valley, Calif., who shot a 2-under-par 70 and went on to win the event. I wanted to chip it close so I tried to read the break. I chipped a little over the break because I knew it would have some sidespin and I just made it.
Each week, the AJGA honors one boy and one girl at every AJGA tournament who shoot the low final-round score. Below we hear from players at recent events as they recount the defining moment of their round.
Under Armour® / Vicky Hurst Championship
I would say the highlight of my round was the birdie I made on No. 1, my tenth hole," said Andrew Ettinger of Boca Raton, Fla., who shot 7-under-par 65 and finished T10. "I had just come off my first bogey of the day and bounced back strong as I headed into my back nine."
The highlight of my round was hole No. 9 because I made a very long putt (for birdie), said Yu Liu of Beijing, after carding a 5-under-par 67 on her way to victory. Also, I made an eagle on No. 13 with a 16-yard chip.
Preseason Junior at White Hawk presented by South Shore Sports
It means a lot to win this award, said Harrison Boling of Hinsdale, Ill., who finished in a tie for fourth after a final-round even-par 72. It took a lot of focus out there to shoot low with the winds as strong as they were, so I am really proud of that. I was one-under through the hardest nine holes of the course and that really got my confidence up.
I didnt have any expectations coming into this weekend, said Ellen Kehoe of Campbellsville, Ky., after firing a 2-over-par 74 to finish tied for second. I just wanted to enjoy the experience. Walking away with this award makes me feel like I belong with these great players.
Junior All-Star at River Ridge
I hit better shots in regulation into the green, said Gustavo Romero of Mexico City, after shooting even-par 72. I played with the wind if I wanted to go right Id hit it left and if I wanted to go left Id hit a little right.
