Professional Recap

AJGA alumus Billy Horschel earned his first win of the season at the Memorial Tournament presented by Workday at Muirfield Village on June 5.

Horschel didn't show up in the leader group after his first round of 2-under-par 70, but his bogey-free second round of 4-under-par 68 brought him to top, just two shots behind the leader.

The Florida Gator carded another bogey-free round at 7-under-par 65, firing seven birdies to build a five-shot lead heading into the final round. His streak of 49 consecutive bogey-free holes ended on the par-4 No. 6, and another bogey on No. 12 dropped his lead to two over second place. However, an eagle on the par-5 No. 15 sent him to a comfortable finish and a four-stroke victory at Muirfield Village Golf Club.

Horschel competed in nine AJGA tournaments between 2004-2005, with his best finish of T2 coming at the 2005 PING Junior at Mirasol.

Winning the Cognizant Founders Cup four weeks ago, AJGA alumna Minjee Lee claimed her second victory this season at the U.S. Women's Open presented by ProMedica, which is her second major title and eighth career win.

The 26-year-old Australian carded a 4-under-par 67 and a 5-under-par 66 in the first two rounds, sharing the lead with American Mina Harigae at the Pine Needles Lodge and Golf Club.

Lee started her weekend with a bogey on the par-3 No. 5, and then got her consistency back with five birdies through the next seven holes. With a 4-under-par 67 on moving day, Lee set the U.S. Women's Open 54-hole scoring record at 13-under-par 200, and took the solo lead by three shots heading into the final round.

Lee closed out with even-par 71 to finish at 13-under-par 271 and took a four-stroke victory at the 77th U.S. Women's Open in North Carolina. She earned $1.8 million from her second major win, which is the largest payout in women's golf history.

Lee's best junior golf performance career was winning the 2012 U.S. Girls' Junior Championship. She also finished 11th at her only AJGA tournament, the 2011 Thunderbird International Junior.

AJGA alumnus Davis Thompson claimed his first Korn Ferry Tour win at the REX Hospital Open on his 23rd birthday.

The Korn Ferry Tour rookie kicked off his week with eight birdies and one bogey to card a 7-under-par 64 at the Country Club at Wakefield Plantation, one shot behind the leader after the first round. Thompson moved to the top of the leaderboard after a second round of 5-under-par 65, and maintained his two-stroke lead with a following 3-under-par 68.

The Georgia Bulldog closed out with a 2-under-par 69, which was enough to secure a one-stroke win for his first professional title.

Thompson competed in two AJGA tournaments between 2014-2015, with a best finish of 12th at the 2014 Will Claxton Junior presented by
