BERRY FIRES 3-UNDER-PAR 69 TO LEAD 12 QUALIFIERS IN BOYS DIVISION
Kidder and Sweeney tie for Girls Division medalist honors in Swansea

SWANSEA, Mass. - Brandon Berry of La Grange, Ky., carded four birdies to top the field in the AJGA Jeffrey M. Isner Memorial Junior at New Seabury Qualifier with a 3-under-par 69. Massachusetts natives Victoria Kidder of Boston, and Jaclyn Sweeney of Andover each fired a 6-over par 78 to lead the four qualifiers in the Girls Division.

Conducted by the American Junior Golf Association, the AJGA Jeffrey M. Isner Memorial Junior at New Seabury Qualifier gave boys and girls ages 13-18 the opportunity to qualify for 17 spots, 12 boys and five girls, for Tuesday's start of the 54-hole stroke-play tournament.

"I hit the ball really well, but didn't hit a lot of putts," said the 18-year-old Berry. "I gave myself a lot of birdie chances but was not able to connect on many."

Berry, who begins his senior year of high school this fall, had birdies on Nos. 1, 2, 9 and 17.

"I started off shaky and the greens were really fast. But I started hitting my irons really well and started making some things happen," Berry said.

Leading the way in the Girls Division, Kidder and Sweeney finished with the same score but had very different rounds.

Kidder, who played in this qualifier last year and went on to finish 15th in the tournament, gave most of the credit for her good round to her driver.

"I was driving very consistently in the fairway. I had some really good drives and was regularly hitting them around 230 yards," said Kidder.

Kidder's score stayed consistent as well. She shot 39-39-78 with one birdie.

"I was pretty confident out there but I could have done some things better," Kidder said. "I was hitting most of the greens though and only had a few three-putts."

Sweeney started out with a 42 on the front-nine, but made some strides on the back-nine, shooting even-par 36 to finish the round with a 78.

"I really wanted to just play well and do my best," Sweeney said. "I was not even sure that I was going to qualify."

The 14-year-old gives credit to her iron play for setting up the short putts that enabled her to play so well.

"I was trying to just put the ball on the green in regulation," Sweeney said. "I was able to do that with a lot of good iron shots that put me right there on the green."

Also qualifying in the Boys Division are C.J. Vuytowecz of Pauma Valley, Calif., Jeffrey Hill of East Bridgewater, Mass., and Josh Cumming of Wilton, Conn., with 1-under-par 71s. Shooting even-par 72 were J. J. Amoruso of Hawthorne, N.Y., and Joey St. Laurent of Nashua, N.H.

Rounding out the Boys Division qualifiers with 1-over-par 73s were Chris Bushnell of Madison, Conn., Eric Boucher of Methuen, Mass., Scott Kegerreis of Chambersburg, Pa., Brendan Conley of Rye, N.Y., Maki Kobayashi of Newington, Conn. and Tyler Kett of Harwich, Mass.

Picking up the other three Girls Division qualifier spots were Allison Hamilton of Falmouth, Mass., and Courtney Richardson of Acton, Mass., with 83s, and Abby Coyle of West Newton, Mass., with an 86.

First-round tee times will begin at 7 a.m. on Tuesday off the Nos. 1 and 10 tees at the Country Club of New Seabury, Dunes Course.
