|Shreveport native finds success with AJGA|
|Philip Barbaree, a freshman at Byrd High School, won his first AJGA event, the 2011 Junior All-Star at Eagle Ridge, in 2011. In 2012, Barbaree followed up his win at Eagle Ridge with a win at the Junior All-Star Invitational, where rounds of 71-69-69 and a tournament total of 7-under-par 209 gave him a three stroke victory over his nearest competitor. Barbaree has one top-10 finish so far in the 2013 AJGA season, a tie for sixth at the Harvey Penick Junior All-Star.|
