SCHULTZ DOUBLES LEAD ON DAY TWO AT OAKRIDGE
Kuhn takes four shot lead in Girls Division

GARLAND, Texas - Kevin Schultz of Richardson, Texas, carded a 1-over-par 72 on Wednesday to extend his lead to four shots going into the final round of the AJGA I.R.I. Golf Group Oakridge Junior.

In the Girls Division, Rebecca Kuhn of Miami also doubled her two-shot lead from the first round despite closing her second round with a bogey and a triple bogey on the last two holes.

The I.R.I Golf Group Oakridge Junior, conducted by the American Junior Golf Association, is being contested at Oakridge Country Club in Garland, Texas. The field consists of 99 juniors from eight states, including 78 from the state of Texas. The Boys Division measures out at 6,542 yards, and the Girls Division plays to 6,038 yards.

In the Boys Division, Schultz continued his solid play which included three birdies on the day. Schultz's 1-over-par 72 gave him a two-day total of 2-under-par 140 and left him four shots clear of a three-way tie for second place. Although Schultz was able to extend his lead on Wednesday, he said he felt it could have been better.

"I'm pretty confident now, but it was kind of a struggle the whole day," Schultz said. "I bogeyed two of the par-5s and you can't really do that out here. I just need to play the par-5s better tomorrow."

Three players are deadlocked in a tie for second place four shots behind Schultz. Jeff Howard of Plano, Texas, finished strong, shooting a 2-under-par 33 on the back nine and finishing the day with a 1-under-par 70. Jace Moore of Southlake, Texas, who played with Schultz in the first two rounds, topped his fellow competitor Wednesday with a 1-under-par 70. Brian Ricketts of Highland Village, Texas rounds out the tie after posting a second-round even-par 71.

Rounding out the top five is Joseph Wieser of Las Vegas, Nev. Wieser collected four birdies during his round of 2-under-par 69. He sits five shots behind Schultz.

In the Girls Division, Kuhn was well on her way to running away from the field before errant shots on the final two holes put a damper on an otherwise birdie-filled back nine. Kuhn birdied the par-5 3rd en-route to a 1-over-par 37 on the front nine. She was 3-under-par through five holes on the back nine before a double bogey on the 15th dropped her back to even-par for the round.

"I was putting really well," Kuhn said. "I just made a lot of par-saving putts that were longer than they should have been. I just hit two really bad shots coming in. Other than that, I was on my way to being under par."

A bogey on the 17th and a triple bogey on the 18th contributed to Kuhn's 3-over-par 74, which was still enough to earn a four-shot lead going into the final round.

Taylor Leon of Dallas, who recently contributed to the West team's victory in the 2003 AJGA Canon Cup, fired a 5-over-par 76 on Wednesday. The score left her in a second-place tie with playing partner Stefanie Page of The Woodlands, Texas, who fired a Girls Division-low 1-under-par 70 en route to gaining a share of second place after two rounds. Page carded three birdies and two bogeys on Wednesday.

The final round of the AJGA I.R.I. Golf Group Oakridge Junior will begin at 7:30 a.m. on Thursday. Tee times will continue until 12:18 p.m. For more information on the tournament, please call tournament headquarters at (972) 530-8008.
