HARE SHOOTS 69 TO TAKE MEDALIST HONORS IN QUALIFIER
White earns way into Girls Division field with 76

CHARLOTTE, N.C.- Justin Hare of Charleston, S.C., carded a 3-under-par 69 to take medalist honors in the Boys Division in the AJGA IRI Golf Group Highland Creek Junior Qualifier. In the Girls Division, Dolores White of Lakeland, Fla., notched a 4-over-par 76 to qualify on Sunday.

Conducted by the American Junior Golf Association, the IRI Golf Group Highland Creek Junior Qualifier gave 84 juniors, 72 boys and 12 girls, the opportunity to play for a position in Tuesday through Thursday's 54-hole stroke play event.

Hare battled the course and the heat for a total of seven birdies during his round.

"My stomach bothered me early, but I pushed through it during the round," said the 16-year-old. "I felt comfortable around the greens and can't wait to see what happens on Tuesday."

Rounding out the remaining qualifiers in the Boys Division are Phillip Mollica of Anderson, S.C., at 1-under-par 71, J.P. Kircher of Pittsford, N.Y., and Parker McKoy of Raleigh, N.C., at 1-over-par 73.

In at 74 are Fielder Huntley of Columbia, S.C., and James Brannen of Clarksville, Tenn. With a 75 on the day are Jake Chominsky of Greensboro, N.C., Jayson Judy of Gibsonville, N.C., and Anthony Richey of Anderson, S.C.

The final qualifiers in the Boys Division were Shawn Hardesty of High Point, N.C., at 76 and Graham Shurley of Dunwoody, Ga., and Noah Goldman of Longwood, Fla., at 77.

White, reaching her third AJGA event this year, credited her short game for pulling her through.

"I made putts when I needed to," said the 15-year-old White. "I don't know how strong the tournament field will be, but I hope to make the top-five."

The other qualifier in the Girls Division was Emily Simpson of Rutherfordton, N.C., with a 6-over-par 78.

The inaugural AJGA IRI Golf Group Highland Creek Junior will be a 54-hole stroke play event beginning on Tuesday, July 22. The event will feature 99 players from 10 states and France.
