CORNELIUS RESIDENT SHOOTS 68 FOR FIRST-ROUND LEAD
Park breaks personal record at 65 in Girls Division

CORNELIUS, N.C.- Colby Moore of Cornelius, N.C., shot 3-under-par 68 to lead after the First Round in the Boys Division of the AJGA PING Junior at The Peninsula Club. In-Bee Park of Eustis, Fla. leads the Girls Division at 6-under-par 65.

Conducted by the American Junior Golf Association, the PING Junior at The Peninsula Club features 99 players, 81 boys and 18 girls from 21 states and France. Former champions in this event include Charles Howell III in 1995 and two-time winner and current LPGA player Beth Bauer in 1995 and 1996.

Moore, member of The Peninsula Club, carded five birdies on Nos. 3, 6, a 60-foot chip-in on No. 11, and back-to-back birdies on Nos. 14 and 15.

"It was an advantage to be on my home course," Moore said. "I know the lines well, and I kept a lot of my shots in the fairway."

Rounding out the Boys Division top five are Will Shambley of Cary, N.C. at 69, and in a four way tie for third, are Ryan Solan of Charlotte, N.C., Reed Darsie of Chapel Hill, N.C., John Saari of Lilburn, Ga. and Ryan Holler of Morehead City, N.C. at 70.

In the Girls Division, 15-year-old Park, carded seven birdies for the day, missing just three greens and totaled 29 putts for her round.

"I feel great," said the reigning Polo Golf Junior Player of the Year. "This round gives me a lot of confidence."

Rounding out the Girls Division top three are defending champ Whitney Myers of East Berlin, Pa., at 71 and Shannon Boyle of Cary, N.C. at 72.

The second round will begin on Wednesday morning at 7:00 a.m., from the No. 1 tee. For more information on the AJGA PING Junior at The Peninsula Club, please contact tournament headquarters at (704) 896-7060.
