Sept. 26-28, 2003

FIVE POST 142s TO TAKE TOP HONORS AT GAINESVILLE POSTSEASON EVENT
Donaldson, Holtgrieve, Renolds, Slabe and Watters share co-Medalist honors

GAINESVILLE, Fla. - Nicolas Donaldson of Windemere, Fla., Steven Holtgrieve of St. Louis, Mo., Lindsay Renolds of Hilton Head Island, S.C., Gregor Slabe of Bradenton, Fla., and Jack Watters of Tampa, Fla., all carded two-over-par 142s in the AJGA Ashworth Postseason Junior at Gainesville to finish with co-Medalist honors. As a result, each will receive three tournament exemption for AJGA Open events.

Conducted by the American Junior Golf Association, the AJGA Ashworth Postseason Junior at Gainesville featured 84 boys, ages 13-18 from 14 states, Canada and Puerto Rico. The 36-hole stroke play event took place at the University Golf Course.

Donaldson shot 71s in both rounds to finish at 142. He started the final round three strokes behind the leader.

"My mind was in it and I just took it one shot at a time," Donaldson said. "I started the round off bad, but then birdied Nos. 7 and 8 to bring it all back and give me the momentum to finish the round."

Holtgrieve bounced back from a 73 in the first round to a one-under-par 69 in the final round. Although he had three bogeys and a double bogey, his six birdies kept him under par.

"I was hitting my irons well today and setting myself up for some good birdie putts," Holtgrieve said. "On No. 18 I hit my driver under a tree and punched it out for a two-foot birdie putt, I was feeling pretty good then."

Renolds shot even-par 70 after carding a 72 in the first round to tie for first. He had two birdies in the round on Nos. 3 and 12.

"I was feeling good after I birdied my first hole," Renolds said. "Today was a steady day, nothing clicked, nothing went wrong."
Slabe praised his putting for his success during the round, in which he carded four birdies. He shot a one-under-par 69 to combine with his 73 from the first round.

"My putting was unbelievable today. My long game was good, everything was good," Slabe said. "I was two-under after I finished the front and was feeling really good right then."

Rounding out the co-Medalists is Watters. He finished in the lead after the first round with a two-under-par 68, but came in with a 74 to finish out the tournament.

"I was keeping the ball in the fairway, but wasn't making the putts," Watters said. "I wasn't hitting as well as yesterday but all-in-all it was a good day."

Billy Belair of Myrtle Beach, S.C., Luke Bitetila of Gainesville, Fla., and Jarrod Barsamian of Ponte Verde Beach, Fla., finished in a tie for sixth with 143s. Belair had the low final round after shooting a 67.

Rounding out the top-10 are Jacob Davidson and David Palm, both of Jacksonville, Fla., with 145s.

This is the second year that Ashworth and the Gainesville Sports Organizing Commission have teamed up to sponsor the AJGA Ashworth Postseason Junior at Gainesville. Local funds used to sponsor the event came from the Alachua County Convention and Visitors Bureau.
