Tournament Storylines

2013 drama
The 2013 tournament ended in dramatic fashion as both Cindy Ha of Demarest, N.J., and William Register of Burlington, N.C., prevailed in a two-hole, sudden-death playoff to secure their respective titles. Ha finished at 3-over-par 147 to win wire-to-wire, while Register finished at 1-over-par 145. Both went on to claim Rolex Junior All-America accolades in 2013. Ha will return to defend her title.
Local players face off

Other local players include Reid Rathburn of Lambert High School, Kayla Jones of Milton High School and Diane Lim of the American School in Norcross.
