MILES SOARS TO VICTORY ON EAGLES WING
Granada takes title and tournament record at 216

HOT SPRINGS, Va. - Tom Miles of Dublin, Ohio, shot 7-under-par 209 to win the Boys Division with a four-stroke margin for the victory. Julieta Granada of Bradenton, Fla., shot a tournament record even par 216 to become the Girls Division 2003 AJGA ClubCorp Junior Players Championship champion.

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

Miles had a strong start with birdies on Nos. 1, 3 and 5. On No. 7 Miles hit a long drive leaving him with only a punch six iron to the green, which left his second shot 15 feet for an eagle. On the back nine, Miles had another eagle on No. 11 where he drove the green 357 yards, 10 feet from the hole. He ended his round with birdies on Nos. 13 and 16.

"Not only today, but this entire tournament went well for me," Miles (66-76-67-209), said. "My wedges and driver worked well for me all week."

The win gives 16-year-old Miles his first AJGA title and third top fifteen finish for the 2003 season.

Rounding out the Boys Division top five are tied for second, Clint Smith of Asheboro, N.C., (68-75-70-213) and Skip Clasper of Gaithersburg, Md., (72-74-67-213). In fourth is Chad Fultz of Staunton, Va., (66-74-74-214) and fifth is Robert Reisen of Pinehurst, N.C., (71-76-68-215).

In the Girls Division, Granada (73-74-69-216) started off her round with her first birdie on No. 4 then shooting par through No. 14 where she birdied the hole. After another birdie on No. 15, Granada chipped in 15 yards from the green for another birdie on No. 17.

"I played pretty solid today," said the 16-year-old. "I was hitting the greens and fairways and was two putting most greens."

This tournament marks Granada's second AJGA win and sixth top five finish of the 2003 season. Granada was the champion in the AJGA Hargray Junior Classic. Granada also broke the AJGA ClubCorp Junior Players Championship tournament record by two strokes, previously set by Mollie Fankhauser in 1998.

Rounding out the Girls Division top three in second place is Ann Laney of Charlotte, N.C., at 75-75-75-225 and tied for third are Jennifer Davis of Seymour, Tenn., at 76-76-75-227, Caterina Wang of Sarasota, Fla., at 71-76-80-227 and Eleanor Tucker of Wilson, N.C., at 74-73-80-227.
