GOLDMAN LEADS BOYS QUALIFIERS WITH 4-UNDER-PAR 68
Bollinger and Bang qualify in Girls Division

JUPITER, Fla.-Fifteen boys and two girls gained entry into the Abacoa Junior Classic Sunday through a qualifying round at the Abacoa Golf Club. The field consisted of 79 juniors, 70 boys and 9 girls.

Conducted by the American Junior Golf Association, the Abacoa Junior Classic will take place July 7-10 at Abacoa Golf Club. The three-round event will feature an 84- player field, 66 boys and 18 girls, with 57 participants hailing from Florida.

Noah Goldman of Longwood, Fla., took medalist honors in the Boys Division. Goldman finished with a 4-under-par 68 to qualify for his second AJGA event this year.

"I hit everything pretty well and made the putts when I had to," Goldman said. "If I hit the ball with consistency, I should put myself in contention in the tournament. That's what I did today."

Jeremy Evans was the second-place finisher in the Boys Division firing even-par 72. Evans of Palm Harbor, Fla., shot 2-over-par 38 on the front nine and 2-under-par 34 on the back nine to par the course.

Tying for third were Youngmin Cha of Wesley Chapel, Fla., and Nick Park of Ithaca, N.Y. Also qualifying were Kevin Streakin of Wellington, Fla., Will Little of Jonesboro, Ark., Robbie Wight of West Palm Beach, Fla., J.T. Hoffman of Alpharetta, Ga., Nestor Delgado of Miami, Fla., Sean Hedden of Palm City, Fla., Adam Shniderman of Fort Lauderdale, Fla., Lion Kim of Lake Mary, Fla., Kyung Chong of Wesley Chapel, Fla., Mike McGann of Plantation, Fla., and Lanny Benson of St. Louis, Mo.

Jade Bollinger of Wellington, Fla., qualified for her first AJGA event and brought home medalist honors in the Girls Division at 4-over-par 76. Bollinger shot 38 on both the front and back nines to finish one stroke ahead of second-place Yu-Jin Bang of Bradenton, Fla.

"I made a lot of good putts today and hit my drives long and straight," Bollinger said. "I'd like to improve on my wedges for the tournament, but I'm excited to qualify for my first AJGA event."

First-round tee times will begin at 7:00 a.m. on Tuesday, July 8, off the Nos. 1 and 10 tees at the Abacoa Golf Club.
