Over the weekend of May 7-8, 2016, the Sergio Garcia Foundation hosted the American Junior Golf Association at Orange County National in Orlando, Florida. BGGA senior and Clemson University signee Ana Paula Valdes claimed her first AJGA win with a tournament total of 3-under-par 141. Valdes had to earn her first victory. At the end of the final round, she was faced with a three-way playoff. The playoff took place on the par-5 10th, and despite an errant approach into a green-side bunker, Ana stuck her bunker shot close and got up and down for the tournament win.
