FOUR TIE FOR TOP HONORS IN RAIN-SOAKED QUALIFIER
Chrysler Boys Invitational adds 12 to field through qualifier

GREENSBORO, N.C.--Kyle Shay of Peoria, Ill., Dan Hazlett of Fletcher, N.C., Nathan Stamey of Canton, N.C., and Tim Tang of North Charleston, S.C., all carded 1-under-par 69s Sunday to earn medalist honors at the Chrysler AJGA Boys Invitational Qualifier held at The Cardinal Golf & Country Club.

Conducted by the American Junior Golf Association, the Chrysler AJGA Boys Invitational Qualifier allowed 12 juniors to earn a spot into the 72-hole championship event, which runs Tuesday through Friday in Greensboro.

The second-annual event will feature 99 players representing 21 states and Japan. The field also includes 14 of the nation's top-20 ranked players. Hall of Famer Arnold Palmer serves as honorary chairman for the event.

Shay pulled ahead of his fellow participants after making an eagle on the 383-yard, par-4 14th hole. He retained that lead after making birdies on the next two holes.

"I've been working hard," the 17-year old said. "I played well at the Easter event in Texas and wanted to take it to another level here."

Hazlett, 16, broke a personal record Sunday with his 69. His best score in competitive golf had been 75 before the qualifier.

"I didn't miss any putts within 12 feet of the hole," Hazlett said.

Stamey, 17, also sank the majority of his putts to put himself at the top of the leaderboard.

"I putted well and made them when I needed to," he said.

Tang carded six birdies to help him tie for the lead.

"I hit it solid all day," the 16-year-old said. "I hit all my irons and my driver well."

Alex Retsch-Bogart of Chapel Hill, N.C., and Brian Fitch of Raleigh, N.C., finished one shot behind the medalists after shooting even-par 70s. The 17-year-old Retsch-Bogart shot 4-over-par on the front, but made a comeback on the back nine by carding 4-under-par 31. Fitch, 17, played at even par on both the front and back nines.

Mac Michals of Concord, N.C., Brad Robinson of Jonesborough, Tenn., and Michael Schachner of Libertyville, Ill., also qualified at 71.

Five players tied at 72 to force a sudden-death playoff to determine the final three spots in the championship. Kevin Tehan of Bel Air, Md., Tyler Rucarean of Gainesville, Fla., and Ryan Solan of Charlotte, N.C., qualified after three holes of the playoff.

First-round tee times will begin at 7:30 a.m. on Tuesday off the No. 1 tee at The Cardinal Golf & Country Club.
