Long Grove, Iowa
August 14-17, 2001

CALKIN CAPTURES FIRST AJGA TITLE AT THE JOHN DEERE CLASSIC JUNIOR CHAMPIONSHIP
Kurokawa leads wire-to-wire in the Girls Division to claim title

LONG GROVE, Iowa-Mike Calkin of St. Charles, Ill., fired a final round 3-under-par 69 to claim his first career AJGA title at the inaugural AJGA John Deere Classic Junior Championship. Elena Kurokawa of Redondo Beach, Calif., shot a 4-over-par 76 to take top honors in the Girls Division and grab her second career victory.

The 54-hole event, conducted by the American Junior Golf Association, was being held at the par-72 Glynn's Creek Golf Course. The field featured 99 of the top junior golfers in the nation, representing 18 states.

Calkin entered the final round one shot behind leader Darren Lundgren of Ballwin, Mo., but quickly grabbed the lead with a birdie on the 365-yard, par-4 third hole and extended his lead with a birdie on No. 7.

"I had the lead after the third hole," Calkin said. "So I knew I had a chance to win if I finished strong."

After a bogey on No. 8 dropped him into a tie for the lead with Trent Leon of Dallas, Calkin responded with a birdie on No. 9 and continued making birdies on the back. After a chip-in birdie on No. 11, Calkin knocked a gap wedge from 125 yards out to within inches of the hole for a tap-in birdie and followed it with a 10-footer for birdie on No. 14.

The 17-year-old finished with six birdies on the day to finish the tournament with a 7-under-par 209, three shots ahead of Leon and Mike Fiedler of Faribault, Minn., who carded the low round of the day with a 5-under-par 67.

"It feels great to win," Calkin said. "This is the best I've ever played. Learning how to win is huge. I really proved something to myself today and this is the second straight week I've shot a final-round 69, so I have a lot of confidence right now."

Scott Seibert of Chesterfield, Mo., finished fourth at 213 after a 2-under-par 70 to close the tournament. Lundgren rounds out the top-5 at 68-71-75--214.

In the Girls Division, Elena Kurokawa led wire-to-wire to claim a two-stroke victory over Alice Kim of Los Angeles, Calif. Kurokawa entered the day with a four-stroke lead of Kim, but bogeys on the first three holes trimmed her lead to two shots. Kurokawa fought back on No. 5, reaching the green with an 8-iron from 125 yards out and draining an uphill 25-footer for birdie to regain control.

"After the first three holes, I knew I needed to start playing better and make some birdies," Kurokawa said. "After my birdie on No. 5, I was able to relax and start hitting the ball better."

The 17-year-old rolled in a 10-footer on No. 10 for her second birdie of the day and made par when she needed to on No. 18 to seal the victory.

"I'm happy to get the win and get the chance to play at Polo and Rolex," Kurokawa said. "It was stressful to have the lead all week, but it feels good to get the win."

Kim finished two shots back at 70-76-74--220 to take runner-up honors. Taylor Leon of Dallas fired the low round in the Girls Division with a 1-over-par 73 to tie for third place with Jessica Castle of Plantation, Fla.
