  • Posted a 3-under-par 68 in the final round to win by one stroke
  • Carded 11 birdies during the tournament and had a bogey-free final round
  • First AJGA victory for the high school junior
  • “It means a lot to win this tournament because it shows that I’ve come a long way from last year. I’ve worked really hard. Last summer, I was shooting some really high scores and I put in the time with my coach to get better and to get to this point means a lot to me.”

Girls Division champion: Megan Schofill of Monticello, Florida, 7-under-par 206 (playoff)

  • Schofill defeated Alyssa Montgomery of Knoxville, Tennessee, in a two-hole playoff to successfully defend her 2018 title in Rome
  • Auburn University verbal commit earned her fourth AJGA victory
  • 2018 Rolex Junior All-American

“[Winning this tournament] shows that I’ve been working hard and playing solid so hopefully I’ll continue that into the summer. It’s sad [seeing my junior golf career come to an end], but I’m excited to experience everything new in college. I’m definitely going to miss the AJGA, and without it I don’t think I would be nearly as good as I am right now.”
