AJGA STEEL CITY JUNIOR CLASSIC
Totteridge Golf Club
Greensburg, Pennsylvania
July 21-24, 2003

RODGERS TOPS LEADER BOARD WITH A 70 AFTER FIRST ROUND
Tavee leads Girls Division with a 77 in rain-soaked Greensburg

GREENSBURG, Pa. - Greg Rodgers of Phoenix, Md., fired a two-under-par 70 to sit atop the leaderboard after the first round of the AJGA Steel City Junior Classic. Tiffany Tavee of Gilbert, Ariz., finished the day with a 5-over-par 77 to take the lead in the Girls Division.

Conducted by the American Junior Golf Association, the tournament features 84 boys and girls, ages 13-18, representing 18 states. The 54-hole event is making its first appearance Tuesday through Thursday at the Totteridge Golf Club in Greensburg, Pa.

Rodgers had four birdies on the day and finished strong after making a par on hole No. 8 and a birdie on No. 9 in the pouring rain.

"There are many holes where a driver will get you in trouble on this course," the 17-year-old said. "You come to these tournaments to win or try for a top ten finish, but to do that you have to remain aggressive and play smart."

Greensburg native Bryan Bustamante, 16, sits in second place after one round of play with a one-under-par 71 after carding three birdies on the day. The AJGA Steel City Junior Classic is the first AJGA event for Bustamante.

In third place with an even-par 72 is Kyle Hartlaub of Summit, N.J. The 16-year-old had four birdies on the day. In a three-way tie for fourth with one-over-par 73s are Colin Clemente of Hubbard, Ohio, Jamie Wallace of Moorestown, N.J., and Donald Thomas of Export, Pa.

Tavee leads by one stroke in the Girls Division. The 18-year-old, who recently graduated from high school, will be playing golf for Arizona State University in the fall.

"I played steady - fairways and greens," Tavee said. "I hope to continue to play steady and well for the rest of the tournament. I'll take it one shot at a time."

This is Tavee's last summer with the AJGA, and she is hoping for her first win. She came in second place at the AJGA Heather Farr Classic in April.

Following close behind Tavee with a 78 is Mayumi Kobayashi. The 16-year-old turned it up a notch after the rain started to pour.

"I started to make pars because I was concentrating more," she said. "My goals for this tournament are to be consistent and play well all three days and not let the weather affect me."

Tied for third with 79s are Nannette Hill of Worcester, N.Y. and Mayule Tomimbang of Kissimmee, Fla.

Second-round tee times will begin at 7 a.m. on Wednesday off the Nos. 1 and 10 tees at the Totteridge Golf Club.
