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.

"I played pretty solid," said Xander McDonald-Smith of Rockaway Park, N.Y., after carding a final-round 3-under-par 68. "I made a lot of putts which were the key today. I made a 20-foot downhill putt on No. 10 for birdie. I knew from then on it would be a good day."
“On No. 13, I hit way right and had no shot behind the trees,” said Cody Proveaux of Leesville, S.C., who fired a final-round 6-under-par 66 to finish in fourth place. “Then I hit a flop shot to about five feet and made par. It started going well from there.”

“The front nine was pretty tough to get through, but I knew I had to grind on the back nine to get ahead,” said Girls Division Champion Karen Chung of Livingston, N.J. “The birdie at No. 14 was a surprise but helped propel me ahead.”
