Conducted by the American Junior Golf Association, the AJGA Stonehenge Junior Open was a 54-hole stroke play event with a 36-hole cut at Stonehenge Golf & Country Club.

The Girls Division was cut at top 18 girls and ties and the Boys Division was cut at top 56 and ties.
After battling through a five-hole sudden-death playoff, Wood earned his first AJGA win.
“Going five holes in a playoff is difficult. My legs are about to fall off,” Wood said. “To finally capture my first AJGA win, means a lot to me. I know my hard work is starting to pay off.

Weaver said she was thrilled to capture a win at her last tournament of the summer. In September, Weaver will be participating in the PING Junior Solheim Cup held in Trim, Ireland, and she has already verbally committed to the University of Norte Dame.
“Every tournament, I learn something new about myself and my game. Each one helps me become a better player and prepares me for college,” Weaver said. “This win gives me a lot of confidence and I am going to take what I learned at this tournament and use it next season.”
