Ariya Jutanugarn, of Bangkok, Thailand, beat Dottie Ardina in the final match of the U.S. Girls’ Junior at Olympia Fields (Ill.) Country Club’s South Course to win her first USGA title.

Jutanugarn, 15, was stroke-play medalist for the second time in her career - she also finished atop the stroke-play leaderboard at the 2010 U.S. Women’s Amateur Public Links. Jutanugarn had never advanced past the quarterfinals in match play. She was the low amateur at the Kraft Nabisco Championship in April.
