MARTIN AND SIMPSON CARD 1-UNDER-PAR 71s TO LEAD QUALIFIER
Thirteen boys and three girls advance to championship in Windsor

WINDSOR, Ontario - Nicholas Martin of Winnetka, Ill., and Bryan Simpson of Peterborough, Ontario, qualified Sunday with 1-under-par 71s to earn a spot in the Toldo Group Eastern Canadian Junior to be held at Roseland Golf & Curling Club. Rachel McHenry of Livonia, Mich., led the Girls Division and locked a position in the championship.

Conducted by the American Junior Golf Association, the tournament qualifier allowed 16 juniors to earn a spot into the 54-hole championship event, which runs Tuesday through Thursday in Windsor, Ontario.

The event will feature 99 players representing 13 states and Canada. The Toldo Group has been the title sponsor of the tournament for the last three years.

Martin, playing in his first AJGA Qualifier, birdied holes No. 8, 9, and 10 to secure his spot in the championship.

"The first couple holes were nerve-racking," the 16-year-old said. "I was really happy with the way I played today. My goal for this week is to shoot in the low 70s."

Simpson, also competing in his first AJGA Qualifier, made three birdies on the front nine.

"I had a string of birdie, bogey, birdie, bogey on the front nine," the 18-year-old said. "I played a pretty solid round and the birdies really gave me confidence."

Also qualifying on Sunday with scores of 1-over-par 73 were David Trousdale of Kingston, Ontario, Nathan Hendriks of Carlisle, Ontario, Joe Shaffer of Bryan, Ohio, Justin Kim of Hamilton, Ontario, Randy Hutchison of Traverse City, Mich., and Ryan Vassel of Toronto, Ontario.

With scores of 74, Matt Robson of Ayr, Ontario, and Jack Garswood of Windsor, Ontario, also secured a spot in the championship. Sean Ball of Kingston, Ontario fired a 75 to enter the tournament. A sudden-death playoff determined the final two spots. Ryan Clark of Windsor, Ontario and Timothy Donovan of Markham, Ontario, also qualified with 4-over-par 76s.

McHenry lead the Girls Division shooting an 81 on the day. She recently competed in the Buick Junior Open presented by Golfweek.
"My putting was amazing today," the 15-year-old said. "I didn't really make any long putts. I made a lot of 10-footers and only three-putted once the entire day."

Also qualifying on Sunday were Ohio natives Kristin Tremoulis of Lima and Shaela Wolf of Cincinnati.

First-round tee times will begin at 6:30 a.m. on Tuesday off the No. 1 tee at Roseland Golf & Curling Club.
