My Scotty Cameron Moment

At the AccuSport Championship hosted by Webb Simpson, players who shot the low final round show off their new Scotty Cameron putter covers.

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 tried to stay as dry as possible and just hit the ball and I stuck it close on four or five holes,” said Carter Page of Waynesville, N.C., who posted a 6-under-par 64. “That was helpful to not have long putts in. I made birdie on Nos. 9, 15, 16 and 18 and all of those putts were within four feet.”


“Today I wasn’t thinking about too much,” said Charles Valluzzo of Mount Pleasant, S.C. “I kind of just went out there, looked at where I wanted it and just swung. Just go and get it, so I guess it worked.”

“I started off well and as soon as I came back after the delay I had three bogeys, so I just got it together and concentrated on one shot at a time,” said Gemma Dryburgh of Bradenton, Fla., of her 3-under-par 67. “I forgot about what everyone else was doing and focused on my own game.”

 

“I was 3-over-par after five or six holes and I thought if I just got it back to even then I had a chance to make up some ground, so I just tried to make some birdies,” said Allison Emrey of Charlotte, N.C. “It feels really good because I’ve wanted this for two years.”

"I just put everything together today," said Greg Podufal of Erie, Pa., who posted a final-round  4-under-par 67. "I chipped in for birdie on No. 7 and then got an up-and-down on No. 8. It really got me going. I followed up with birdies on Nos. 9 and 10."

"On No. 1, I started off with a birdie and that really relaxed me for the round,” said Girls Division Champion Talia Campbell of Dallas. “I had a long drive and I hit a lob wedge three feet from the hole and I made the birdie putt."

"The most important shot of my round was my up-and-down for birdie on No. 9 from 30 yards,” said George Cunningham of Litchfield Park, Ariz., after breaking the competitive course record with an 8-under-par 64.  “I was excited when all of the birdies started to fall."

"I had four birdies in a row, starting at No. 11,” said Jennifer Yang of Coquitlam, British Columbia, after her 4-under-par 68 and runner-up finish. “My approach shots were working really well today. I stuck it close to a lot of flagsticks, which allowed for more birdie opportunities."

Stars of Texas Junior All-Star

"After making a double on the first hole I thought, 'Wow this is going to be an interesting day,'" said Stratton Nolen of Austin, Texas, who won the Boys Division with a final-round 5-under-par 67. "I finally caught fire and birdied four of the next five holes because I made almost every putt within five feet."

"On No. 1 I hit my driver shot in the fairway, 130 yards from the hole and sunk the 10-foot putt for birdie," said Kirsten Pike of Ovilla, Texas, while describing her birdie en route to a final-round 2-over-par 74. "I was really excited to start turning my game around with more confidence.”
