Eleven boys and two girls qualify

GREENVILLE, S.C.-Kevin Lim and Sarah Sturm led 13 qualifiers for the Dunlop Carolina Junior Championships as they took medalist honors Sunday both finishing at 2-over-par 74.

Conducted by the American Junior Golf Association at Green Valley Country Club, the Dunlop Carolina Junior Championship Qualifier allowed 99 juniors, 78 boys and 21 girls, the opportunity to "play their way" into the three round championship event starting on Tuesday.

Lim, who had never qualified for an AJGA event until Sunday, said his goal for the upcoming week is to be in the top 10 and give himself opportunities to play in more tournaments.

"It feels great to qualify," said the 14-year-old. "I worked hard. I kept my driver in the fairway and one putted on many occasions."

Sam Holtsclaw of Spruce Pine, N.C., William Ely of Sparta, N.J., Michael Saari of Lilburn, Ga., Patrick Rada of Anderson, S.C., Adam Mitchell of Chattanooga, Tenn., Fielder Huntley of Columbia, S.C., Justin Hare of Charleston, S.C., Gordon Strother, Jr. of St. Simons Island, Ga., Eddie Brock, Jr. of Wilmington, N.C., and Jack Ulrich of Southern Pines, N.C., rounded out the qualifiers in the Boys Division.

Sturm stated she is very excited to qualify, with her goal for the tournament to play steady par golf.

"I am very pleased with my performance, I made two birdies and four bogeys," said the 17-year-old.

Jessica Castle of Plantation, Fla., who shot a 77, also qualified for the event.

"I want to play consistently throughout the tournament and would like to get in the top five," the 18-year-old said.

The Dunlop Carolina Junior Championship will feature 99 players from 13 states and the Bahamas, competing in 54 holes of stroke play.

J.D. Bass of Fairview, N.C., is the returning Boys Division champion and Mallory Hetzel of Summerville, S.C., is the defending Girls Division winner. Reigning Polo Golf Junior Player of the Year In-Bee Park also highlights the Girls Division.
