CALLAHAN OUTLASTS RAIN, GANDRANATA FOR FIRST AJGA WIN
Lincicome goes wire to wire for Girls Division title


TAMPA, Fla.- Ty Callahan of Tampa, Fla., withstood a strong effort from George Gandranata of Bradenton, Fla., winning the Boys Division of the AJGA First American Title Avila Junior Classic by one stroke. Brittany Lincicome of Seminole, Fla., captured the Girls Division on Thursday with a 9-under-par 207.

Conducted by the American Junior Golf Association, the AJGA First American Title Avila Junior Classic featured 83 players, 62 boys and 21 girls from more than 18 states, New Zealand and Bermuda. The field also featured eight Polo Golf Junior All-Americans and four previous champions.

Callahan (67-73-70- 210) began his day with three birdies through five holes, but double-bogeyed No. 8, just before an hour and 40 minute rain delay halted his round on No. 9.

"I got off to a good start," said the 17-year-old. "I tried to speed up because I knew the weather was on the way, but when I double-bogeyed I hurt myself."

Callahan, a member of Avila Golf & Country Club, felt proud to win his first AJGA event in front of his fellow members.

"It was really special to see the members and staff of (Avila) come out and support me throughout my round."

The top-five of the Boys Division includes Gandranata at 5-under-par 211, a tie for third between 2002 champion, Nicholas Smith of Ocala, Fla., and Ben Leong of Bradenton, Fla., at 4-under-par 212. Patton Kizzire of Tuscaloosa, Ala., and Christopher Anderson of Lake Mary, Fla., tied for fifth at 3-under-par 213.

Lincicome (72-65-70-207), taking her second AJGA event this season, came off a second round in which she tied a career-low round of 65.

"I knew I couldn't top a 65," said the three-time Polo Junior Golf All-American. "I just tried to score even-par all day. It was a great honor to win this event in my home state."

Lincicome, 17, won this event in 2000 when it was called the AJGA Tampa Bay Classic.

Rounding out the top three of the Girls Division are Julieta Granada of Bradenton, Fla., at two-over-par 218 and Jenny Suh of Fairfax, Va., in third at 6-over-par 222.
