LAFONTAINE BIRDIES HIS WAY TO BOYS DIVISION TITLE
Kim's first AJGA win comes by seven shots

ESSEX, Ontario - Shawn Lafontaine of Cobourg, Ontario, used a birdie-birdie finish to hold off Andrew Parr of London, Ontario, and win the Boys Division of the AJGA Toldo Group Eastern Canadian Junior. In much less dramatic fashion, Alice Kim of Los Angeles won the Girls Division by a comfortable seven-shots.

Conducted by the American Junior Golf Association, The AJGA Toldo Group Eastern Canadian Junior featured 85 players representing 14 states and three provinces. Of the 85 players in the field, 43 hailed from Canada.

Lafontaine put himself in a precarious position on the back nine by double bogeying No. 10 and then bogeying Nos. 14, 15 and 16. Lafontaine bounced back with birdies on Nos. 17 and 18, however, to claim his first career AJGA title.

"I got pretty mad at myself after bogeying 14, 15 and 16," said Lafontaine, who finished 69-74-72--215. "At worst, I knew I had to birdie the last two holes. I had to put the pressure on myself to do it, but it all worked out for the best."

After sinking a 25-foot putt on No. 17 for birdie, Lafontaine put his third shot on the 516-yard, par-5, No. 18 within 10 feet, but Parr put the pressure on his fellow countryman by sticking his second shot within 15 feet. After Parr missed his eagle putt, Lafontaine drained his birdie putt, pumping his fist in approval of his feat.

"I usually don't show that much emotion, but I was pretty proud of myself," said Lafontaine. "The feeling is tough to explain. I'm just excited for my first AJGA win."

Rounding out the top five of the Boys Division were Parr at 216, Bill Lewis of Westfield, Mass., and John Locke of Ashland, Ohio, at 217 and Nick Kenney of Etobicoke, Ontario, at 221.

In the Girls Division, Kim, who started the day three-shots ahead of her nearest competition, blew the field away by shooting a 75 to take her first AJGA crown as well.

Kim struggled through the front nine, including a double bogey on No. 9, but rebounded from that with a 1-under-par 35 on the second nine to cruise to a championship.

Kim birdied three holes on the back nine, including No. 12, which seemed to turn things around for her.

"After the front nine, the birdie on No. 12 made things a little easier for the rest of the round," said Kim, who like Lafontaine, finished out her round with two birdies.

"I was pretty confident coming in," said Kim. "I've been hitting the ball well prior to this. Today, I just wanted to play it a little more cautious with my mid-length putts and my approach shots."

Joining Kim in the top thee of the Girls Division were Erin Borowiec of South Lyon, Mich., at 230 and Clare Lucey of Winnetka, Ill., at 233.
