ASSAWAPIMONPORN FIRES 68 TO TAKE MEDALIST HONORS AT SUNRIVER
Eleven boys add their name to the list of title contenders in Oregon

SUNRIVER, Ore. - Kris Assawapimonporn of Huntington Beach, Calif., fired a 3-under-par 68 Monday to take medalist honors at the AJGA PING Junior at Sunriver Resort Qualifier.

The 18-hole tournament qualifier at the par-71, 6,991-yard layout of the Meadows Course at Sunriver Resort gave 11 players in the Boys Division entry into the inaugural AJGA PING Junior at Sunriver Resort that will take place in Sunriver, Ore., August 26-29.

Conducted by the American Junior Golf Association, the AJGA PING Junior at Sunriver Resort Qualifier allowed 45 boy junior golfers from six states and Canada, the opportunity to earn a spot into the 54-hole tournament.

Assawapimonporn, 17, carded five birdies en route to his 3-under-par 68 that qualified him for his first AJGA tournament.

"I was consistent all day," Assawapimonporn said. "I hit my drives straight all day and I was making six to seven-footers the whole round."

He put together an impressive stretch of five holes, carding three straight birdies on Nos. 10, 11 and 12, while chipping in for birdie on No. 14.

"After my three straight birdies, I was feeling pretty good heading to No. 14," he continued. "This week, if I can just keep the ball in play, I will be fine."

Two shots off the pace and qualifying at 1-under-par 70 were Dane Bagnell of Edgewood, Wash.; Dustin Andres of Tualatin, Ore.; and Lucas Lee of Torrance, Calif. Tied for fifth at even-par 71 were T.J. Bordeaux of Tacoma, Wash.; Michael Hansen of Mill Creek, Wash.; and Jack Meehan of Sumner, Wash. Sitting with 72s were Oregon natives Kevin Lim of Woodinville and Blake Seabaugh of Tigard. Rounding out the qualifiers after a one-hole playoff were Andrew Leneve of Durham, Ore., and Richard Lee of Bellevue, Wash.

The AJGA PING Junior at Sunriver Resort will feature 84 players, both boys and girls, from more than nine states and Canada, and over 15 Oregon natives are set to compete.

First-round tee times will begin Wednesday at 11:30 a.m. off the Nos. 1 and 10 tees at Sunriver Resort on the Meadows Course.
