A pair of Thailand natives took home the hardware at the AJGA Under Armour/Gary Woodland Championship on Sunday.

Playing at the Diablo Grande Golf & Country Club, KK Limbhasut used a final-round, 4-under 68 to rally past first-round leader David Kim for the boys title. Limbhasut finished the tournament at 5 under, while Kim couldn't capitalize on his first-round 66, following it up with a 2-over 74.

On the girls side, Pailin Ruttanasupagid carded the only round in the 60s in the two-day, 36-hole tournament, firing a 2-under 69 to beat Marissa Hinchman of Lodi, Calif. by two strokes. Overnight co-leader Lilia Vu fell back to T-6 after a 3-over 74.

The tournament is one of four with a professional golfer's name on it, with Hunter Mahan, Vicky Hurst and Steve Marino also hosting AJGA events in 2012.
