THREE TAR HEEL STATE NATIVES TIED FOR BOYS DIVISION LEAD
Park maintains advantage in Girls Division

CORNELIUS, N.C.- Colby Moore of Cornelius, N.C., Will Shambley of Cary, N.C., and Ryan Holler of Morehead City, N.C., all hold a share of the lead in the Boys Division of the AJGA PING Junior at The Peninsula Club. In the Girls Division, In-Bee Park of Eustis, Fla., widened her margin on Wednesday with a two-day total of 9-under-par 133.

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, playing on his home course, carded a 1-over-par 72 to remain in the lead with Shambley and Holler. Moore looks for continued success on Thursday.

"I thought my way around the course today," said the 16-year-old. "I just want to take it one shot at a time and not put pressure on myself since I haven't been in this situation before."

Shambley entered the second round in second, just one shot behind Moore. He recovered from a slow start with a chip-in birdie on No. 7 to card an even-par 71.

"I feel like I am in control of my game," said 17-year-old Shambley. "I have felt comfortable for the last two days and I just want to stay relaxed for the final round."

Holler notched a 1-under-par 70 to make up a two-stroke deficit from the first round. Playing in his fourth AJGA event this year, Holler feels his swing is in the right place for the final round.

"I was hitting the ball great today," said the 17-year-old. "It feels great to be playing with the final group in my home state. I just want to stay positive and have fun."

Rounding out the top five in the Boys Division are Frank Wrenn IV of Greenville, S.C., at 1-under-par 141 and Ryan Solan of Charlotte, N.C., at even-par 142.

Park, winner of two AJGA tournaments this year including last week's AJGA Rolex Tournament of Champions in Braselton, Ga., recorded a second-round 3-under-par 68.

The 15-year-old Polo Golf Junior Player of the Year has set her standards high for the final round.

"I want to keep playing to the best of my abilities. My goal for tomorrow is to have a three-round total less than 200."

The top three on the Girls Division leaderboard are Julie Bartholomew of Marietta, Ga., at 3-over-par 145 and Laura Crawford of Lancaster, S.C., at 4-over-par 146.

The final round of the 54-hole event will begin on Thursday morning at 7:00 a.m., from the No. 1 tee. For more information about the AJGA PING Junior at The Peninsula Club, please contact tournament headquarters at (704) 896-7060.
