Marshallia Ranch Golf Course
Vandenberg AFB, California
July 21-24, 2003

GOODMAN GRABS LEAD AFTER COURSE RECORD 69
Goldberg takes over first in the Boys Division

VANDENBERG AFB, Calif. - Thick, early morning fog lead to an hour and a half delay at Marshallia Ranch Golf Course Wednesday. When play resumed, Allison Goodman of San Diego carded a course record, 3-under-par 69 and currently sits atop the leaderboard of the Girls Division. Aaron Goldberg of Encinitas, Calif., carded a 4-under-par 68 to seize the lead at the AJGA Marshallia Ranch Junior Classic.

Conducted by the American Junior Golf Association, the 54-hole event is being held at the par-72 Marshallia Ranch Golf Course. The field features 84 players, ages 13-18, representing nine states, Australia, and Canada.

By carding a 69, Goodman broke the course record of 71, set just one year ago by fellow AJGA member, Grace Woo, and tied Wednesday by first-round leaders, Jennifer Tangtiphaiboontana of Long Beach, Calif., and and Minnie Choi of Fountain Valley, Calif.

Goodman came back from one-stroke-behind to take a two-stroke lead following second-round action. Goodman's round included six birdies and three bogies, bringing her two-round total to 141.

"All of my putts were dropping today," Goodman said. "I ran into a little bit of trouble on some of my approach shots, but I just kept remembering that I could still get up-and-down."

Goodman entered Nos. 16 and 17 at 5-under-par, but bogeyed both holes and finished with a par on No. 18.

"I want to play like I did the first 15 holes and stay relaxed and confident tomorrow," Goodman added.

Goodman will be looking to improve on her best AJGA finish, second place at the 2003 Boyne Highlands Junior.

Jennifer Tangtiphaiboontana now trails Goodman by two-strokes after carding an even-par 72, totaling 143. Soo Cho of Glendale, Calif. is currently in third with a two-round total of 147.

In the Boys Division, Goldberg entered the round in an 11-way tie for second place at 1-under-par. Goldberg now holds a 2-stroke lead with a two-round total of 139, at Vandenberg Air Force Base.

"I hit the ball off the tee very well today," commented Goldberg. "I just really tried to hit fairways and greens, get par, and let the birdies happen."

The birdies did happen, as the San Diego State signee carded five birdies compared to only one bogey. Goldberg hopes to continue his strong play Thursday as he looks to improve on his best AJGA finish, third at the 2003 AJGA Lennar Junior at Mission Hills, and possibly earn his first AJGA victory.

"I want to keep playing the same way tomorrow," Goldberg remarked. "If I can keep the ball in play and keep hitting greens and fairways, I have a pretty good chance."

First-round leader Garrett Sapp of Cerritos, Calif., and Lee Keong Yang of Bradenton, Fla., now sit in second place with a two-round totals of 141. Yang carded a 3-under-par 69, while Sapp carded a 1-over-par 73. Sapp and Keong are followed in fourth by Colin Wilcox of Camarillo, Calif., who carded a 1-under-par 71, bringing his total to 142. Defending AJGA Marshallia Ranch Junior Classic Champion, Louie Bishop of Murrietta, Calif., currently sits in fifth with a two-round total of 143, following an even-par 72 Wednesday.

The final-round begins at 6:30 a.m. Wednesday off Nos. 1 and 10 tees at Marshallia Ranch Golf Course. For more information about the AJGA Marshallia Ranch Junior Classic, please call tournament headquarters at (805) 606-6262.
