SOLUTIONS CONSULTING JUNIOR CLASSIC

Totteridge Golf Club

Greensburg, Pennsylvania

July 12-15, 2004 

 

TWO FIRST TIME WINNERS AT TOTTERIDGE

Gold captures Boys Division title; Nochta tops Girls Division

 

            GREENSBURG, Pa.   Scattered showers throughout the day did little to dampen the spirits and play of juniors at Totteridge Golf Club as two first time winners claimed victory at the Solutions Consulting Junior Classic. Christopher Gold of Haddonfield, N.J., fired a final round even-par 72 to come from five shots back to grab first place. Laura Nochta of Cortland, Ohio, captured her first AJGA victory by firing a low-final round 77.

 

The Solutions Consulting Junior Classic was a 54-hole stroke play event conducted by the American Junior Golf Association at Totterridge Golf Club. The tournament featured 99 players, ages 12-18, from 16 states and Canada, including 41 players from Pennsylvania.

 

Heading into No. 18, Gold was one stroke behind second round leader Jamie Wallace of Moorestown, N.J.

 

“I hit it into the hazard on No. 17 but I was still able to make bogey,” Gold said. “On No. 18, I knew what I needed and I got it done.”

 

Following 18 holes of play with matching tournament totals of 221, a playoff with friend and fellow New Jersey native Wallace was necessary. A par on the second sudden-death playoff hole sealed the victory.  

 

“Jamie and I play against each other a lot,” Gold said. “He’s a great player, so it is very exciting to come out with the win.”

 

This was Gold’s first AJGA victory, improving on his previous best AJGA finish, ninth at the 2004 Randall Parker Shootout at Fieldstone.

 

“This tournament was a great experience and it will definitely help boost my confidence.”

               

                Following a round of five-over-par 77 and the sudden-death playoff, Wallace placed second behind Gold. Clayton Rotz of Chambersburg, Pa., grabbed third with a tournament total of 222. Christopher Barach of Niskayuna, N.Y., Ji Ho Moon of Ellicott City, Md., William Miller of McMurray, Pa., and Mike VanSickle of Wexford, Pa., all tied for fourth with matching tournament totals of 226.

 

In only her second AJGA event, Nochta used consecutive birdies on Nos. 5, 6, 7 and 8 to card a 77 on her way to victory at Totteridge Golf Club.

 

“I just stuck it close and made all of the putts on Nos. 5, 6, 7 and 8, ” Nochta said. “I knew that the back nine would be tough so I tried to go as low as I could on the front nine. By going low on the front I knew that I could stay in the 70s and possibly be in contention.”

 

Coming into the Solutions Consulting Junior Classic, Nochta was hoping for a top-5 finish.

 

“I really felt no pressure or stress out there,” the 16-year-old commented. “I’m still young and I never expected to do so well. It feels great to win.”

 

Second-round leader Katie Trachok of Pittsburgh, Pa., carded a final-round 82 to place second with a tournament total 243, one stroke back of Nochta. Jordan Craig of Connellsville, Pa., took third place with a total of 246.
