PUNTAWONG OUTLASTS BACA IN SUDDEN-DEATH PLAYOFF TO WIN BOYS DIVISION
Jennie Lee takes home first career AJGA title in Girls Division


CATHEDRAL CITY, Calif.
- Chanin Puntawong of Bradenton, Fla., defeated Michael Baca of Fresno, Calif., on the second hole of a sudden-death playoff Wednesday to claim the title at the AJGA Compaq Junior All-Star Classic at Cimarron. Jennie Lee of Huntington Beach, Calif., closed the tournament with a two-round total of 6-under-par 136 to win the Girls Division.

The event is one of seven Compaq/David Leadbetter Junior All-Star Series events conducted by the American Junior Golf Association in 2001. The Junior All-Star events, created in 1998, are limited to players ages 13 to 15 in order to give younger AJGA members more playing opportunities. The tournament at Cimarron Golf Club featured a total of 73 boys and girls representing 17 states and Canada.

Competing in just his second AJGA event, the 14-year-old Puntawong won his first title. He and Baca both stood at 4-under-par heading into the final hole of regulation. Both players drained birdie putts on the 18th hole to finish the tournament at 5-under-par with totals of 137.

On the first playoff hole, a 170-yard par-3, Baca nailed his tee shot to within 20 feet of the hole. Puntawong chipped onto the green and saved par, forcing another playoff hole after Baca two-putted. On the par-5 18th hole, he sank his second putt to make birdie and claim the title.

"With so many people watching, there was a lot of pressure," Puntawong commented. "It was a scary par-3. He was on the green, so there was definitely a lot of pressure. But I'm perfectly confident in my chipping."

Three golfers tied for third with identical scores. Tim Cha of Chino Hills, Calif.; Kyung Min of Fullerton, Calif.; and Kenny Kim of Cerritos, Calif., each carded final-round 69s to wrap up the tournament at 3-under-par 139.

The 14-year-old Lee earned her first AJGA title with a 6-under-par performance. Lee, who will be a freshman at Edison High School in Huntington Beach, Calif., in the fall, sank three consecutive birdies on holes 16, 17 and 18 to hang on to the lead she built after carding an opening-round 65 Tuesday.

"I just tried to make par and then the birdies came and I started sticking shots and making my putts," Lee said about her final-round performance.

Finishing second was Sommer Scholl of Riverside, Calif., at 2-under-par 140 after carding a final round 69 Wednesday. Tiffany Joh of San Diego fired the low score of the day in the Girls Division with a 68 to close the tournament at even-par 142 and finish in third place.
