Sergio Garcia won the Sanderson Farms Championship last weekend to earn his first PGA TOUR victory since his win at The Masters in 2017. Garcia held off Peter Malnati and shot a 19-under-par 269 to win by one stroke. Garcia has hosted the Sergio and Angela Garcia Foundation Junior Championship presented by Callaway Golf since 2016 and played in several AJGA during his junior golf career.
Mel Reid won the ShopRite LPGA Classic to earn her first win on the LPGA Tour. Reid's final round of 4-under-par 67 got her to 19-under-par 265 for the tournament and helped her get the victory by two strokes over fellow AJGA alumnae Jennifer Kupcho. As a junior golfer, Reid earned a spot on the 2005 European Junior Solheim Cup team.
Evan Harmeling won the Korn Ferry Tour Savannah Golf Championship after defeating Kevin Dougherty in a one-hole playoff. Harmeling birdied No. 18 to get to 21-under-par 267 and get into the playoff and then birdied No. 18 again to seal his victory and get his first Korn Ferry Tour win. He played in AJGA events from 2004 until 2007 and totaled four top-10 finishes in his career.
Peiyun Chien won the Symetra Classic to pick up her second Symetra Tour victory. Chien shot a 14-under-par 202 to win by one stroke over AJGA alumna Lucy Li. Li is in her first year on the Symetra Tour and her runner-up finish at the Symetra Classic is her third top-10 this year. She was a three-time Rolex Junior All-American and earned four AJGA wins in her junior golf career.
