Athas swings into a two-stroke lead in Girls Division

CHAMPIONSGATE, Fla. - Steve Han of Chino Hills, Calif., kept his opening-round lead with a level-par round Friday, giving him a 4-under-par 140 tournament total at the American Junior Golf Association's Callaway Golf Junior All-Star Series Championship. Christi Athas of Eldora, Iowa, sits atop the Girls Division with a two-round total of 6-over-par 150.

The AJGA Callaway Golf Junior All-Star Championship, a 54-hole event conducted by the American Junior Golf Association, includes 57 of the world's top 13-16-year-old junior golfers. To be invited to this event, each junior had to prove their ability by finishing at or near the top of the leaderboard in one of the six AJGA Compaq Junior All-Star events.

Han's even-par 72 during the second round secures him the top spot on the leaderboard going into Saturday's final round.

"I made a lot more putts yesterday than I did today," the freshman at Ayala High School said. "I made a lot of good approach shots, but I had way too many up-and-downs today."

Han also noticed a change in weather which effected his overall physical and mental game.

"There was more wind today that made it very hard for me to play well," the fifteen-year-old said.

During Saturday's final round, Han plans to concentrate more on his putting and hopes the wind is not going to be a distraction.

Rounding out the top five in the Boys Division are Michael Haverfield of Louisville, Ky., at 144, Jason Cook of Windermere, Fla., at 145 and James Lee of La Mirada, Calif., Will Haydon of Palo Alto, Calif., and Kenny Palmer of Scottsdale, Ariz., tied at 146.

In the Girls Division, Athas' two-day total of 6-over-par 150 gives her a two-stroke lead over her closest competitors. Athas took the honors at the 2001 AJGA Compaq Junior All-Star Classic at Eagle Ridge giving her eligibility for this week's championship.

"During both the first and second rounds, I had been hitting the fairways and greens really well," the junior at Eldora New Providence High School said. "My putter was especially working for me today."

The Iowan's strategy going into the final round is simple: Remain focused and relaxed.

"I want to play the same way tomorrow as I have played the past two days and try to keep my mental game strong," she said.

Trailing by two-strokes is Heather Wright of Houston, Texas, and Whitney Sylvan of Columbia, S.C., both at 152.

Final-round action begins Saturday morning with tee times from 7:30 - 10:21 a.m. off the No. 1 tee. For more information concerning the AJGA Callaway Golf Junior All-Star Championship or any AJGA event, call tournament headquarters at (407) 397-1450.
