AJGA MIDWEST JUNIOR PLAYERS CHAMPIONSHIP

Grand Geneva Resort & Spa, Highlands Course
Lake Geneva, Wisconsin
June 30 - July 3, 2003

DOAN HEADS LEADERBOARD AFTER 36 HOLES IN LAKE GENEVA
Blumenherst leads Girls Division with a 4-under-par 138

Lake Geneva, Wis.-Jeff Doan of Viroqua, Wis., fired a 5-under-par 137 after two rounds of play to take the lead at the Midwest Junior Players Championship. Amanda Blumenherst of Scottsdale, Ariz., stands at 4-under-par 138 to lead the Girls Division after the second day.

Conducted by the American Junior Golf Association, the tournament features 99 players representing 26 states. The 54-hole event runs Tuesday through Thursday in Lake Geneva. The Midwest Junior Players Championship has not been held since 1998, when it completed a seven-year run at the Grand Geneva Resort & Spa.

Doan (70-67-137) started his day with an eagle on the No. 2 hole and finished with three birdies on the back nine.

"I hit my irons really well today," the 16-year-old said. "That is by far what I did better than anything else. I hope to start putting better. I made a few but didn't capitalize on them."

The Midwest Junior Players Championship is Doan's first AJGA event. He said he hopes to place high enough in the final round to earn exemptions into future tournaments.

Trailing behind Doan by two strokes with 3-under-par 139s are Alex Snickenberger of Wellesley, Mass., Cole Peevler of Keokuk, Iowa, Robert Riesen of Pinehurst, N.C., and Kyle Moore of Dublin, Ohio.

Moore's round took an interesting turn when he nailed the second hole-in-one of the tournament on the par-3 hole No. 7. Moore used his 8-iron for the 157-yard shot.

"I couldn't see the pin because it was tucked behind a tree," the 18-year-old said. "I decided to hit right at it and it went three feet past the hole, spun back and went in. It was my first hole-in-one as well as the first I had ever seen."

Blumenherst held on to the lead in the Girls Division after a second-round 73.

"I hit it straight and stayed out of trouble," the 16-year-old said. "Tomorrow I want to play my best and not worry about how the other girls are doing."

Blumenherst (65-73-138) has four AJGA titles to her name. In 2002, she won the AJGA Arizona Junior Classic and the AJGA R.H. Crossland Foundation/St. Regis Aspen Junior. She has also secured two titles this season in the AJGA Southwestern Junior Classic and the AJGA PING Marsico Funds Colorado Junior Roundup.

Behind Blumenherst are Carling Coffing of Middletown, Ohio, and Kelly Robb of Concord, Mass., with 2-over-par 144s after two rounds of play.

Final-round tee times will begin at 6:45 a.m. on Thursday off the No. 1 tee at the Grand Geneva Resort & Spa, Highlands Course. For more information on the Midwest Junior Players Championship contact tournament headquarters at (800) 558-3417, Rm.7219 or visit our Web site at ajga.org.
