TROUTMAN, SHRIVER TIED FOR BOYS LEAD AT ENGLISH TURN
Pandolfi leads the Girls Division at 3-over-par 145

NEW ORLEANS, La. - After a rain-soaked afternoon at English Turn, Beck Troutman of Fernwood, Miss., and Eric Shriver of Cary, N.C., emerged as the Boys Division leaders of the AJGA hp Junior Classic at 3-over-par 145 after two rounds. Jennifer Pandolfi of Navarre, Fla., leads the Girls Division at 3-over-par 145.

Conducted by the American Junior Golf Association, the hp Junior Classic at English Turn features a field of 82 competitors, 65 boys and 17 girls. The event is a 54-hole stroke-play tournament, with 24 players from Louisiana.

The 18-year-old Troutman shot 3-over-par 75 on Wednesday to tie for the lead, but feels the tournament is still wide open.

"The course is there for the taking," Troutman said. "All you have to do is keep it between the lines."

Shriver, 17, will enter the final round on Thursday tied for the lead. This is the first time he has entered the final round in the top 20.

"It feels good to have a chance to win the tournament," Shriver said. "I just want to shoot par on Thursday. If I do that, I have a good chance of winning."

Andrew Temple of Berkeley, Calif., and Chase Watkins of Fort Collins, Colo., are in third place. Trailing are Scooter Jefferson of Spring, Texas and Matt Fast of Hattiesberg, Miss., in fifth place.

In the Girls Division, 17-year-old Pandolfi holds an eight-stroke lead over Katherine Jones of Jackson, Miss.

Pandolfi got rolling after eagleing No. 2 and finished the front nine 3-under-par 33. Conservative play attributed to Pandolfi's score.

"I didn't go for some of the par 5's because of the wind," Pandolfi said. "I just going to try and play smart and aggressive tomorrow and I think I'll be in good shape."

Jones, 17, shot 2-over-par 74 on Wednesday, but her double-bogey on No. 18 left her disappointed coming off the green.

"I could be in better shape," Jones said. "I can't lose focus, the toughest thing to do in golf is keeping your focus."

Rounding out the top three in the Girls Division are Alexis Rather of Tupelo, Miss., Brittany Givilancz of Weslaco, Texas, and Amy Middleton of Citronelle, Ala.

Final-round tee times will begin at 7:30 a.m. on Thursday, July 24, off the Nos. 1 and 10 tees at the English Turn Golf & Country Club. For more information on the hp Junior Classic at English Turn, call tournament headquarters at (504) 391-8182.
