Dickson, age 14, has been competing in AJGA events since 2011. His highest finish came at the 2012 Junior All-Star at Ocala hosted by Ocala-Marion Sports Commission. Dickson's score of 72-70-75-217 gave him a share of seventh place.
Cameron Willis, Eaton, Ohio (2016)
The highest ranked Ohioian in the Boys Division field, Willis is competing in his second career AJGA event. In his first event, the Junior All-Star at Fieldstone in May, Willis finished T5 with a score of 73-79-152.
Oi Lam Michelle Yan, Hong Kong, China (2016)
The highest ranked player in the Girls Division field, Michelle Yan finished T2 at the Junior All-Star at Mission Inn in January with a score of 76-77-78-231.

The AJGA provides valuable exposure for college golf scholarships, and has an annual junior membership (boys and girls, ages 12-18) of more than 6,300 members from 48 states and more than 50 foreign countries.
