JANANGELO GRABS GIRLS MAJOR CHAMPIONSHIP IN PLAYOFF
Lang takes tournament to three extra holes

WILMINGTON, Del.-Elizabeth Janangelo of West Hartford, Conn., fired a final-round 74 Thursday but needed three extra playoff holes to take the championship at The DuPont Country Club. Brittany Lang of McKinney, Texas, fought to the end to finish second.

The 54-hole major event, conducted by the American Junior Golf Association, featured 67 girls representing 22 states and Canada. The field included 21 Polo Golf Junior All-Americans. Past champions in the tournament's 13-year history include Kellee Booth, Grace Park, Beth Bauer and Leigh Ann Hardin.

The 17-year-old Janangelo held a 2-stroke lead entering hole No. 14 but made a double-bogey to go to even-par for the tournament and fall into a tie with Lang. The two players kept pace with each other until No. 16 when Lang bogeyed and Janangelo made another double-bogey.

"I made a mental mistake on 14 when I hit the ball over the green," Janangelo said. "Any other day the ball probably would have stayed in the rough on the back of the green but today it went all the way down into the hazard."

Down one stroke on the 18th tee, Janangelo stood up and hit a drive that hooked around the corner of the dogleg and through the fairway. After taking relief from the leaderboard area, she pitched out to the fairway and made a bogey. Lang hit her shot from the middle of the fairway into the front, right greenside bunker. Failing to get on the green from the bunker, Lang ended up with a double-bogey on the hole to force a playoff.

"I hit my drive perfect on 18," Janangelo said. "I really had to hit a snap hook off the tee to stay in the fairway and just hit it too good."

Both players bogeyed No. 10, the first playoff hole, after hitting their approach shots in the rough to the back, left of the green but made routine pars on No. 18 to take it to a third hole. Lang hit her tee shot on No. 10 down the middle and Janangelo hit it 15 yards longer down the middle. After Lang hit her approach shot into the left greenside bunker, Janangelo hit her shot to the middle of the green, 20 feet below the hole. Lang hit a bunker shot to the back of the green and Janangelo lagged her ball to inside a foot. Janangelo then made her par putt to win the championship after Lang missed her run at par.

"I just kept telling myself that I could make the putts," Janangelo said. "I'm so excited to win this tournament because of the history."

This tournament caps a solid season for Lang, who won the AJGA Lucent Technologies Girls Junior Championship earlier this year.

"I wanted to finish the season on a good note," Lang said. "I'm happy with the way I played this week in a major tournament."

Janangelo will represent the East team at Canon Cup next week in Asheville, N.C., and attempt to win her fifth consecutive state amateur championship in Connecticut in two weeks.

Perry Swenson of Charlotte, N.C., carded a final-round 73 to finish one stroke behind in third place at 4-over-par. Jane Lee of Torrance, Calif., Alice Kim of Los Angeles, and Paula Creamer of Pleasanton, Calif., finished in a tie for fourth place at 6-over-par.
