The Homestead Resort, Lower Cascades Course
Hot Springs, Virginia
July 28-31, 2003

CARLIN PACES HIMSELF, BOYS DIVISION WITH TOURNAMENT-LOW 65
Girls Division to come down to final day with three-way tie

HOT SPRINGS, VA.- Greg Carlin of Kensington, Md., carded a tournament- and career-low 7-under-par 65 to take the lead in the Boys Division of the AJGA ClubCorp Junior Players Championship. In the Girls Division, Catherina Wang of Sarasota, Fla., Julieta Granada of Bradenton, Fla., and Eleanor Tucker of Wilson, N.C., are in possession of the lead at 3-over-par 147.

The 10th AJGA ClubCorp Junior Players Championship features 123 players, 99 boys and 24 girls from 21 states, including 30 players from the state of Virginia. The field also includes defending Boys Division champion Jared Jones of Kenova, W. Va., 2001 Girls Division champion Whitney Myers and AJGA Polo Golf Junior All-American Granada.

Carlin, playing in his fourth AJGA event this summer, entered the second round seven shots off the lead at 1-over-par 73. He took a simple approach into Wednesday's round.

"I just wanted to go out and play," said the 17-year-old. "After each birdie I wanted to calm down, not get too excited and keep playing."

Carlin's second round featured seven birdies and 11 pars. His previous career-low came earlier this year, with a 2-under-par 68 at the AJGA Henry-Griffitts Bluegrass Invitational in Ashland, Ky. Last year, he finished tied for fourth in this same tournament.

The previous tournament-low was Tuesday's first round leaders Tom Miles of Dublin, Ohio and Chad Fultz, of Staunton, W.Va., at 6-under-par 66. Fultz shot 2-over-par 74 to fall to second at 4-under-par 140.

In a tie for third are Nathan Kinker of Barboursville, W.Va., and Miles at 2-under-par 142. Rounding out the top-five in a tie for fifth is Clint Smith of Asheboro, N.C., and William Shriver, IV, of Silver Spring, Md., at 1-under-par 143.

Wang, the first-round leader at 1-under-par 71, will enter the final round as the leader for the first time in an AJGA event.

"I got some bad breaks today, but I still feel I putted well," said the 15-year-old. "Tomorrow I just want to take it step by step and make par all around the course."

By contrast, Granada will be making her fourth appearance in a final pairing this season. She won the AJGA Hargray Junior Classic in Hilton Head Island, S.C., earlier this summer. She entered Wednesday's round at 1-over-par 73, just one shot off Wang's lead.

"I struggled a little, but I hit the ball well on the last three holes," said 15-year-old Granada.

On the final three holes, Granada made par on No. 16, birdie on No. 17 and par on No. 18., for her round of 2-over-par 74.
Tucker will join the final group tomorrow after carding a 1-over-par 73. Her highest finish in an AJGA event was in 2002 at the Henry-Griffitts Rome Junior Classic with a fifth-place tie.

The final round of the 54-hole stroke play event will begin Wednesday, July 31 at 7:30 a.m., off the No. 1 tee at The Homestead Resort, Lower Cascades Course. For more information on the AJGA ClubCorp Junior Players Championship, please contact tournament headquarters at (540) 839-7708.
