UIHLEIN, LENDL EARN MEDALIST HONORS IN SIMSBURY
Twelve boys and two girls qualify for AJGA Greater Hartford Open Junior Classic

WEST SIMSBURY, Conn. - Peter Uihlein of North Dartmouth, Mass., carded four birdies en route to taking top honors at the AJGA Greater Hartford Open Junior Classic Qualifier with a 1-under-par 71. Marika Lendl of Goshen, Conn., fired a 77 to win the Girls Division.

Conducted by the American Junior Golf Association, the AJGA Greater Hartford Open Junior Classic Qualifier gave boys and girls ages 13-18 the opportunity to qualify for 14 spots, 12 boys and two girls, for Tuesday's start of the 54-hole stroke-play tournament.

"I drove the ball well today and putted pretty solid," Uihlein said. Because of prior commitments, Uihlein will not be competing in the championship tournament.

"I dropped a birdie on the first hole and was like, 'alright I feel good now,'" Uihlein said. The 13-year-old had birdies on Nos. 1,7,8 and 11.

Lendl used two birdies to take the win in the Girls Division with a 5-over-par 77.

"I hit it okay today," Lendl said. "My putting was not that great but I had some good shots and it got the job done."

Lendl was tied with one of her playing partners, Chelsea Curtis, going into No.16. Lendl made par on the hole to take the lead. She followed it up with a birdie on No. 17 coupled with a Curtis bogey to extend the lead to three strokes. Lendl bogeyed the final hole to fall one back but still come away with the two-stroke win.

"The turning point for me was on No. 16," Lendl said. "We were all off the green and I was able to take the lead on the hole."

Also qualifying in the Boys Division are Cody Paladino of Kensington, Conn., and Kyle Parsons of Wethersfield, Conn., with even-par 72s. Kevin Fitzpatrick of Harrison, N.Y., Joey Murphy of Vienna, Va., Timothy Hager of Ivyland, Pa., all came in with 73s.

Conor O'Brien of Weatogue, Conn., Cory Thistlethwaite of Dundas, Ontario, Scott Chacon of Pasadena, Calif., Edward Czajkowski of Burlington, Conn., Josh Cumming of Wilton, Conn., Lane Anderer of York, Maine, and John Murphy of Wilton, Conn., round out the Boys Division qualifiers with 2-over-par 74s.

Also qualifying in the Girls Division is Curtis of New Seabury, Mass., with a 79.

First-round tee times will begin at 7 a.m. on Tuesday off the No. 1 tee at the Hop Meadows Country Club.
