HARMAN AND SUH LEAD AFTER RAIN-SOAKED THIRD ROUND IN GREENSBORO
Gates, Saunders and Ureta tied for third at even-par 210

GREENSBORO, N.C. - Brian Harman of Savannah, Ga., and Giwon Suh of Orlando, Fla., shot 67 and 69, respectively, to stay atop the leaderboard after the weather-delayed third round of the Chrysler AJGA Boys Invitational. The duo stands at 3-under-par 207 after 54 holes.

Conducted by the American Junior Golf Association, the second-annual event features 99 players representing 21 states, Chile and Japan competing in 72 holes of stroke play. The field also includes 14 of the nation's top ranked players. Hall of Famer Arnold Palmer serves as honorary chairman for the event.

Play was delayed for 64 minutes after the leaders began play because of intense rain and lightning in the area.

After winning the Thunderbird International Junior last month in Scottsdale, Ariz., Harman (69-71-67-207) was once again impressive in his third-round showing in Greensboro. He putted well inside 15 feet while making three birdies and no bogeys on the back nine.

"Today my goal was to put myself into position to be in the last group," the 16-year-old said. "My goal for tomorrow is to make a charge and put pressure on the other leaders."

Suh (71-67-69-207) started the front nine by making four birdies, placing him at 5-under-par for the tournament. His putting was the key to success after he nailed a 30-foot putt on the 569-yard, par-5 sixth hole. Overall, Suh said he was pleased with his game.

"It was great to play with really good players," Suh said. "This was a great experience and I just try to do my best. I am really happy with my performance. Tomorrow I will be pleased if I shoot another 67."

Robert Gates, Jr. of Gainesville, Fla., Samuel Saunders of Windermere, Fla., and Martin Ureta of Santiago, Chile, are tied for third place after Thursday's competition.

Gates (73-68-69-210) felt that his success on the course his was due to his mental gameplan prior to the round.

"I thought the game through and it worked," Gates said. "I positioned the ball and kept it in play really well today. Tomorrow I plan to hit all the fairways and greens and hopefully the putts will go in, too."

Shooting 1-over-par 71 Thursday, Saunders (69-70-71-210) said he is looking forward to tomorrow's competition.

"I had too many bogeys today," Saunders said. "Now that I'm behind I've got to go low tomorrow. I'm going to play aggressive, shoot at the pins and try to make as many birdies as possible. I'll try to cut out the stupid mistakes that caused me to make bogeys today."

Ureta (71-71-68-210) posted 1-under-par 34 on both the front and back nines. His performance Thursday included five birdies to put him at even par for the tournament, leaving him three shots off the pace.

Final-round tee times will begin Friday at 7:30 a.m. off the No. 1 tee at The Cardinal Golf and Country Club.
