AJGA alumnae Janie Jackson ran away from the field at last weekend's Florida's Natural Charity Classic to earn her first Symetra Tour victory. She would card five birdies and only one bogey on her way to a final round of 4-under-par 68. She would go on to win by eight shots with a tournament total of 10-under-par 206.
Jackson played in AJGA events from 2007 until 2012 and had two wins and 12 top-5 finishes.
Tyrrell Hatton became a first-time PGA TOUR winner after shooting a 4-under-par 284 for the tournament at the Arnold Palmer Invitational. Despite a double bogey on No. 11, Hatton parred eight of his last nine holes to hold on and win by one over Marc Leishman. Bryson DeChambeau finished fourth at 1-under-par 287 and was the highest finishing AJGA alumni.
Best of the Rest
