AJGA Summer Recap

As the AJGA continues to roll through their 2011 summer season, Winn  is proud to be a title sponsor of the AJGA and  a strong supporter of growing the game through junior golf. Winn representatives attend more than a dozen AJGA events annually throughout the country to offer free regripping to their junior  players.

Current AJGA players have proven that their skills measure up with the world's best this summer. 17 year old Beau Hossler recently qualified for and played in the US Open at Congressional CC. Jordan Speith, another 17 year old, just won the USGA Junior Amateur in July and also played in the PGA Tour's Byron Nelson Championship in May, at one point climbing to within 3 shots of the lead in the final round.

On the girls' side, sisters Moriya and Ariya Jutanugarn from Thailand have blistered the AJGA Tour this year, both claiming numerous victories. Both also recently played in the US Women's Open along with six other AJGA players invited to play in the crown jewel event of the LPGA Tour. Moriya was the top amateur, finishing tied for 32nd.

Impressive to say the least!
