My Scotty Cameron Moment

Kristen Park receives her Scotty Cameron putter cover after posting a 6-under-par 66 at the ClubCorp Mission Hills Desert Junior.
Each week, the AJGA honors one boy and one girl at every AJGA tournament who shoot the low final-round score. Below we hear from players at recent events as they recount the defining moment of their round.

Elbit Systems of America Junior Championship

"My birdie on No. 2, one of the tougher holes on the course, really helped my confidence,” said Myles Lewis, who fired a 4-under-par 67 to force a three-way playoff and claim the title. “After that birdie, I knew I could go low."

"I had a hole-in-one on No. 3 from 155 yards,” said Kaira Martin, after finishing tied for second. “I didn't see it go in and thought it went passed the hole, but people started cheering so I knew I made it."

AJGA Florida Junior

“I made a 35-foot eagle putt on the seventh hole that got the round jumpstarted,” said Domenico Geminiani, who claimed victory after a final round 4-under-par 68. “The win gives me more confidence. To win on the AJGA is nice.”

“I’m just super psyched,” said Marika Liu, Girls Division champion and K12 Qualifier medalist. “I’ve been playing on the AJGA for four years. This is just a turning point. I’m just so happy that I won.”
AJGA Palmetto Junior Classic

 “On No. 3, I hit a really great second shot,” said Bailey Patrick, Jr., who shot a 5-under-par 67.  “It got plugged in some pine needles so I just tried to get away with par but I hit it tight and birdied it.”
“On No. 17, I made a 25-footer for birdie,” said Samantha Swinehart, who posted a 2-under-par 70 to finish second at the event.

ClubCorp Mission Hills Desert Junior

“After struggling with my putting, I was able to birdie No. 18 in front of a gallery,” said Jonah Texeira, who carded a 3-under-par 69. “This was one of the best driving days for me and everything went straight down the middle today."

"On No. 18 I hit my 60 degree wedge 85 yards right at the hole and it checked up,” said Matt Pinizzotto, who finished tied for fourth with Texeira. “I knew that I had to break 70. I was so glad to be able to do it today.”

“I hit every fairway and only missed one green,” said Kristen Park of her 6-under-par 66.  “I stuck it to three feet from the hole on No. 18 and made a birdie putt. I love playing No. 18 because of all the history it has to it.”
