Fifty-two men's and women's Division-I conference championships were held in April and May, and AJGA alums claimed 26 individual titles, including Stanford's Andrew Yun (pictured).

Men's Championships
Luke Guthrie claimed his second straight Big Ten title and helped Illinois record its fourth straight team championship. Guthrie's AJGA career included one win and a spot on the 2007 Rolex Junior All-America First Team.

Stanford's Andrew Yun carded a 13-under-par total and became the first Cardinal since 2002 to claim an individual Pac 12 title. Yun is the most decorated boy in AJGA history, as he was named a Rolex Junior All-American a record five times (2005-2009).

Ty Spinella, a junior at North Texas, claimed his first college title and led the Mean Green to its second straight conference title. Spinella's four-year AJGA career included a pair of victories and four top-10 finishes.
