Weekend wrap-up (June 2-3)

Four AJGA alumni finished the weekend in winner’s circles, as Stacy Lewis, Tiger Woods, Sara Brown and James Hahn claimed professional victories.

Stacy Lewis notched her second LPGA Tour victory of the season Sunday at the ShopRite LPGA Classic. Following her win, Lewis moved from No. 7 to No. 3 in the Rolex Rankings and replaced Cristie Kerr as the No. 1 American in the world. Lewis’ AJGA career included nine tournaments, with her best showing being a tie for fourth at the 2002 Aaron's / Bob Estes Abilene Junior (then called the Abilene Reporter-News Junior). Following her junior career, she attended the University of Arkansas and was a four-time All-American and the 2005 SEC Freshman of the Year. Lewis will host the inaugural KPMG Stacy Lewis Junior Open in Bella Vista, Ark., July 2-5.
At the Memorial Tournament presented by Nationwide Insurance, Tiger Woods claimed his 73rd career PGA TOUR victory, tying him with tournament host Jack Nicklaus for second-most in TOUR history. Woods was the Rolex Junior Player of the Year in 1992 and 1993, and he amassed eight career victories, which is tied for second most in AJGA history. The historic PGA TOUR stop supports the AJGA, as 96 players will compete in the Memorial Junior presented by Border Energy, July 9-12.
Sara Brown’s victory at the My March Golf Classic was her first on the Symetra Tour. Needing to finish the season in the top 10 on the money list in order to regain her LPGA Tour card, Brown moved to No. 4 following the win. Before becoming a four-year letterwinner at Michigan State, her AJGA career included appearances at the 1999 Rolex Girls Junior Championship (then called the Lucent Technologies Girls Junior Championship) and the 2003 McDonald’s Betsy Rawls Girls Championship.
After making birdie on the second playoff hole, James Hahn earned his first Nationwide Tour victory at the Rex Hospital Open in Raleigh, N.C. Before turning pro in 2003, Hahn played for UC-Berkeley. As a junior golfer, Hahn appeared in seven AJGA tournaments between 1996 and 1998, with his best finish being a quarterfinal appearance at the 1998 Polo Golf Junior Classic.
Following his win at the Rex Hospital Open on Sunday, Hahn flew to California to compete in the U.S. Open Qualifier in Daly City. Hahn finished first after shooting 66 in the first round and 70 in the second. This will be Hahn’s first U.S. Open appearance.
