15 boys, 3 girls gain entry into tournament field

HARBOR SPRINGS, Mich.-Nils Homer of Brampton, Ontario, fired a 1-under-par 71 Monday to grab medalist honors in the Boys Division at the Buick Junior Open Qualifier. Samantha Braschler of Red Wing, Minn., secured Girls Division honors with an 81.

The 18-hole qualifier, conducted by the American Junior Golf Association, included 58 players representing 13 states and Canada. Fifteen spots were on the line in the Boys Division and three spots in the Girls Division for entry into the Buick Junior Open to be held August 21-23 at the Boyne Highland's Moor Course.

Starting his round on the 13th hole, Homer got it going early with a five-foot birdie putt on the 160-yard, par-3 17th. After a pair of birdies on Nos. 8 and 9, the 17-year-old kept the momentum going on No. 10, sticking an 8-iron from 153-yards out to within seven feet of the hole and draining it for birdie. Homer then rolled in a 30-footer for birdie on No. 11 to move him to 1-under-par.

"I played well," Homer said. "I drove the ball well today and only missed a few fairways. My biggest concern today was keeping it in the fairway and doing that made my day much easier."
James Song of Oxnard, Calif., finished one stroke back at 36-36--72. Eddie Hsu of Diamond Bar, Calif., carded a 73 to take third; Matthew Myers of St. Joseph, Mo., finished fourth at 74; Michael Belich of West Allis, Wis., and Corey Rudd of Baudette, Minn., round out the top-5 with a pair of 75s.

In the Girls Division, Braschler shot 9-over-par 81 to take medalist honors and earn entry into the tournament field.

"I'm excited for the tournament," Hull said. "The course played tough for me, so I just tried to keep it in play all day. "
