JANE PARK LEADS PACK HEADING INTO FINAL ROUND AT ROLEX GIRLS
3-under-par 69 puts Creamer one shot behind the leader

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. - Hot and muggy conditions at the LPGA International, Legends Course did not affect Jane Park of Beaumont, Calif., as she took over the lead with a 3-under-par 69 after the second round at the AJGA Rolex Girls Junior Championship, which gives her a 139 heading into Thursday's final round. Also carding 69 was Paula Creamer of Pleasanton, Calif., bringing her two-day total to 140. First-round leader Angela Park of Torrance, Calif., fell two shots back after shooting 2-over-par 74.

Conducted by the American Junior Golf Association, the Rolex Girls Junior Championship features 80 girls, representing 24 states, Mexico, and Japan. Seventeen Florida residents are included in the field. The Polo Golf Girls Junior Player of the Year, In-Bee Park of Eustis, Fla., and 22 other Polo Golf Junior All-Americans are among the title contenders.

Jane Park attributed her success Wednesday to her putting.

"I struggled off the tee today, but I made a couple of putts that weren't supposed to go in," Park said. "I made three birdie putts from 30 to 40 feet. I was just trying to lag the putts up there and they just kept dropping."

Park was pleased with her performance thus far and hopes to maintain the momentum that she built up over the past two days. The 16-year-old has not won an AJGA event since 2001, and has yet to win an AJGA Invitational.

"I'm ready to win one," said Park. "Tomorrow I want to keep the ball in play and hit fairways. I also want to capitalize on the chances I get and keep playing well."

Creamer, a 16-year-old 2003 U.S Women's Open qualifier, recorded six birdies and three bogeys in Wednesday's round.

"I putted all right, but I missed a lot of short putts," said Creamer.

Asked about her thoughts on the final round, Creamer thinks she can lower her score from Wednesday's round.

"I like playing this course and believe that I can go low," the rising high school junior Creamer said. "I know that I left many shots out on the course today. Tomorrow I plan on playing my game by hitting fairways and greens consistently."

Angela Park has a two-day total of 142, which places her in a three-way tie for third with fellow California native Amie Cochran of Torrance (69-73—142), and In-Bee Park (71-71—142).

"Today didn't go too well," Angela Park said. "I didn't shoot as well as I wanted to. I tried to be patient with my game, but I missed too many putts, and putts equals confidence for me."

Cochran carded four birdies on Nos. 1, 11, 13 and 14 that helped place her name among the contenders.

"The four birdies were nice today, but I also hit into too many water hazards, causing three bogeys," commented Cochran. "Hopefully tomorrow I will make less mistakes."

Morgan Pressel of Boca Raton, Fla., Blair Lamb of Flat Rock, N.C., Christie Reed of Coral Springs, Fla., and Amber Prange of Noblesville, Ind., are tied for sixth with scores totaling 145.

In other tournament highlights, Lauren Todd of Phoenix, joined Jane Park and Creamer with carding the low round of the day with a 3-under-par 69.

Final-round tee times will begin at 7:30 a.m. Thursday off the Nos. 1 and 10 tees at LPGA International's Legends Course.
