Lucy Yuan '24 Earns AJGA Title
Cathy Morrison

Coastal League girls' golf player of the year Lucy Yuan '24 won her second American Junior Golf Association (AJGA) event on June 10, 2021. 

Lucy explains, "This AJGA is a higher level than the one I won last summer. The AJGA tournaments are worth different points depending on their worth and field strength. An All-Star, the win last year, is worth 20 points. An open, the win this year, was worth 80 points. Usually opens are worth 40 points but since my ranking in the AJGA is high, I brought the strength of the field up, therefore boosting the point worth."

The Lanto Junior Championship was sponsored by PGA pro Lanto Griffin and was played at Blacksburg Country Club in Blacksburg, Va. where he grew up.

Lucy was three back going into the back nine of the final day, and made three birdies to win by two and finish seven under par.
