Alumni Min Woo Lee and Hee Young Park captured victories at the ISPS Handa Vic Open last weekend. A joint tournament with the European Tour and LPGA Tour, it allows men and women of each tour to compete simultaneously on one course for an equal prize. Lee carded four-straight rounds in the 60s to finish at 19-under-par 269 and win the men's tournament by two shots. In the women's tournament, a four-hole playoff was needed to decide the champion. Park would emerge victorious in the playoff to capture her third LPGA win.
In his only AJGA event, Lee played in the 2016 Thunderbird International Junior where he finished T22. Park also played in one AJGA event during her junior golf career. She lost in the quarterfinals of the 2003 Polo Golf Junior Classic.
Nick Taylor earned his second PGA TOUR victory after an impressive wire-to-wire win at the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am. Taylor carded a final round of 2-under-par 70 to win by four shots and hold off AJGA alumni Phil Mickelson and Kevin Streelman. Streelman finished second while Mickelson finished third.
Streelman did win the Pro-Am portion of the tournament with his partner and former NFL wide receiver, Larry Fitzgerald. The duo shot a 33-under-par 254 to win the Pro-Am by five shots.
