Brett Quigley, 17, of Barrington, Rhode Island, defeated Bill Heim of New Franken, Wisconsin, 1 up, to win the championship at Singletree Golf Club in Edwards, Colorado. Quigley became the 40th golfer to win the Junior Amateur. No one has repeated as champion.

Harry Rudolph, Jr., of La Jolla, California, earned the qualifying medal with a 36-hole total of one-under-par 141, two strokes better than Quigley, Scott Peterson of Englewood, Colorado and Jack O'Keefe of Little Rock, Arkansas.

Quigley won the first three holes of the final, but Heim cut the margin to two holes when Quigley lost the 14th when he three-putted and led by only one hole. Quigley bogeyed the 11th.

Quigley played cautiously down the stretch and parred the final two holes to preserve the win. The USGA accepted a record 2,349 entries for the championship.
