THREE-WAY TIE LEADS TO SUDDEN-DEATH PLAYOFF TO DETERMINE WINNER IN MASHPEE
May and Yi claim titles in AJGA Jeffrey M. Isner Memorial Junior at New Seabury

MASHPEE, Mass. - David May of Auburn, N.Y., carded a 1-under-par 69 in the final round of the AJGA Jeffrey M. Isner Memorial Junior at New Seabury to put him in a three-way tie for the lead. After making par on two holes of a sudden-death playoff, the 17-year-old walked away with his first AJGA title.

Songyi Yi of San Diego, Calif., fired a 2-over-par 72 to defend her title in the Girls Division.

Conducted by the American Junior Golf Association, the 54-hole event featured 84 boys and girls, ages 13-18, from 14 states, as well as 33 Massachusetts natives. The 15th annual event was held at the Dunes Course at the Country Club of New Seabury.

May, along with fellow competitors Jamie Wallace of Moorestown, N.J., and Andrew DiBitetto of Rochester, N.Y., kept neck-and-neck with each other for all three rounds, finishing with 1-over-par 211s for the tournament. After making bogey on the first hole of the sudden-death playoff, DiBitetto finished in a tie for second place.

May and Wallace continued on to the second hole to determine the winner. May made a par on the second playoff hole to earn him the title.

"I came into the playoff thinking I had to stay focused and do what I had to do to win," May said. "It feels awesome to finally walk away with a title, I've been working at it and I finally got it."

This event was May's fourth of the summer. He travels to Alabama next week to compete in the AJGA Robert Trent Jones Golf Trail Junior Classic and hopes to be competing in some of next season's AJGA invitational events.

Wallace entered the sudden-death playoff with uncertainty of the outcome. The 17-year-old high school senior has been in approximately ten playoffs in his golfing career, and has never came out ahead.

"I get nervous which causes me to make mistakes," Wallace said. "Next year I just have to get more consistent with my game. I make a lot of birdies, but I also make a lot of bogies - I need to get rid of those bogies."

Rounding out the boy's top five are Michael Quagliano of White Plains, N.Y., in third with a three-day total of 214, Michael Tulacz of Connelly, N.Y., and Matthew Scytkowski of South Hadley, Mass., with 215s for the tournament, in a tie for fourth.

In the Girls Division, Yi was ecstatic to keep the tournament title in her grasp. The 16-year-old made birdies on Nos. 7 and 9 to keep her two strokes ahead of her competitors.

"I feel great today about how I played in the final round," Yi said. "Everything went well today."

Yi plans on returning to New England to defend her title again next year.

Marina Choi of Los Angeles, Calif., who took second, finished the round feeling a similar way to how she felt after last year's tournament.

"This is the same situation as it was last year," the 17-year-old said. "Last year I was in first after the first round, second after the second round and finished third in the third round."

Choi had one birdie on the day and was impressed by Yi's performance.

"She was hitting it straight all day," Choi said. "She'd hit it in the fairway, then on the green and two-putt for par. If she missed the green, she would chip in or one-putt."

Coming in third with a tournament total of 223 was Kimberly Donovan of Hopkinton, Mass.
