QUALIFIERS COMPLETE FIELD OF 99 AT OAKRIDGE
Monday, Roberson and Bos take home medallist honors

GARLAND, Texas - Matthew Monday of Greenwood, Ark., and Corey Roberson of Canton, Texas shared medallist honors at the AJGA I.R.I. Golf Group Oakridge Junior Qualifier on Sunday. Both players carded rounds of 1-under-par 70 to earn spots in the tournament.

In the Girls Division, Marie Bos of Orlando, Fla., shot a 1-over-par 72 to earn medallist honors. Bos' score was four shots better than the rest of the girls field.

The I.R.I Golf Group Oakridge Junior Qualifier, conducted by the American Junior Golf Association, was contested at Oakridge Country Club in Garland, Texas. The field consisted of 99 juniors from eight states, including 83 from the state of Texas. Eighty-four boys competed for 11 spots in the tournament, which begins on Tuesday and concludes on Thursday. Fifteen girls battled it out for three spots in the championship field.

In the Boys Division, Monday was consistent throughout the round, recording 15 pars en route to his 1-under-par 70.

"It makes me feel pretty good because I've never seen this course before," Monday said. "I came out and hit my tee shots well. I think that's the most important thing out here. You have to get it in play and keep it in bounds."

Roberson was also consistent throughout the day, carding scores of 35 on both nines. However, he said he feels that there is room for improvement going into the tournament.

"I'm pretty confident, but I had some luck (Sunday)," Roberson said. "I've been playing good the last three weeks, but the 70 could have easily been a 75."

Three players finished one shot behind Monday and Roberson. Jason Cuthbertson of Conway, Ark., Bobby Massa of Irving, Texas, and Conrad Shindler of Coppell, Texas, all fired rounds of even-par 71 and will compete in the tournament this week. Travis Woolf of Arlington, Texas, and Sang Yi of Carrollton, Texas qualified with scores of 1-over-par 72.

Five more players qualified via a sudden-death playoff, including Stafford Gray of Snyder, Texas, Ryan Myers of Flint, Texas, Jonathan Purdy of The Woodlands, Texas, Michael Stiller of Southlake, Texas, and Dustin Thompson of Granbury, Texas. All five players carded rounds of 2-over-par 73.

In the Girls Division, Bos claimed medallist honors with plenty of room to spare. Her 1-over-par 72 was four shots better than Stephanie Hickerson of Dallas, and Jennifer Yoo of Cerritos, Calif. Both shot rounds of 5-over-par 76 and qualified for the tournament.

The first round of the AJGA I.R.I. Golf Group Oakridge Junior will begin at 7:30 a.m. on Tuesday. Tee times will continue until 12:27 p.m. For more information on the tournament, please call tournament headquarters at (972) 530-8008.
