QUALIFER ROUNDS OUT FIELD OF SAN ANTONIO
Mullin, Brijalba highlight survivors
BOERNE, TEXAS - Michael Mullin, of Austin, Texas,
fired a 2-under-par 69 to propel himself to the top of the
Boys Division qualifier. Christine Brijalba, of El Paso, Texas,
won the Girls Division by one stroke Monday.
The 18-hole shotgun qualifier, conducted by the American Junior
Golf Association, was held at Tapatio Springs Golf Resort
in Boerne, Texas. The field consisted of 98 players from six
states, including 93 players from Texas, and one from Mexico.
Fifteen boys qualified for the tournament, and three girls
were added to the field. Past champions of the San Antonio
Shootout include Tiger Woods, a winner of the event in 1992.
Mullin found scoring opportunities on a shorter course that
featured firm greens and tight fairways as he collected five
birdies. Mullin, who started on the 9th hole, recorded an
even-par 34 on the front nine. His birdies at the 10th, 12th
and 18th helped him to a 2-under-par 35 on the back nine.
He carded one of the two scores of the day that were under-par.
"Pretty much every time I had to make a par save, I made
it," Mullin said. "I played pretty solid; I only
had a few mistakes."
Nick Williams, of New Braunfels, Texas, had three consecutive
birdies on the front nine and finished second with a 1-under-par
70. Chance Pipitone, of Corpus Christi, Texas, playing in
his first AJGA event, came in third place with a 72, three
shots behind Mullin.
Stafford Gray, of Snyder, Texas, took fourth with a score
of 73. Six players tied for fifth with a round of 74. Blake
Caldwell, of Houston, Timothy Byrd, of Laplace, La., Ben Jackman,
of College Station, Texas, Matteson Hamilton, of Houston,
Steven O'Brien, of Kingwood, Texas, and Raul Lemus, of Mission,
Texas, joined the field of the tournament that begins Wednesday.
With seven players tied at 76 and only four spots left, a
two-hole playoff was needed to separate players for the remaining
spots. James Han, of Carrollton, Texas, and Geoffrey VanHook,
of Austin, Texas, qualified by making a par on the first hole.
Garrett Merrell, of Dallas, and Brandon Burgoon, of The Woodlands,
Texas, claimed the final two spots.
Christine Brijalba fought with personal inconsistency but
managed to earn the Girls Division low round of the day. Her
score of 8-over-par 80 was good enough for a one-shot victory.
"I just struggled to keep it together," Brijalba
said. "It's kind of awkward (to be in the tournament)
though. I didn't really expect to qualify, shooting an 80,
but it happens. So, I'm playing."
Brijalba sprinkled three birdies into her round, which also
contained six bogeys.
Stephanie Waters, of Austin, Texas, notched an 81, which put
her in second place. To decide the final qualifier spot, Jennifer
Crawford, of Sugar Land, Texas, and Lauren Dodge, of Montgomery,
Texas went to the fifth hole of a playoff before Crawford
won with a bogey.
The first round of the Randall Parker San Antonio Shootout
presented by Parker's Express will begin at 7 a.m. on Wednesday.
Tee times will continue until 1 p.m. For more information
