MACKENZIE'S EVEN-PAR 71 SETS HERSELF APART FROM GIRLS DIVISION
Four Fire 2-Under-Par 69 to Sit Atop the Stacked-Up Boys Division

AURORA, Ore. - It's a tale of two divisions after the first round of the PING Langdon Farms Junior Classic. In the Girls Division, Paige Mackenzie of Yakima, Wash., distanced herself by four shots from her nearest competitor by shooting an even-par 35-36--71. In the Boys Division, Erik Olson of Renton, Wash., David Fern of Spokane, Wash., Matthew Fladwood of Redmond, Ore., and Nick Higham of Shelley, Idaho all came in with 2-under-par 69's. Nearly one-third of the 69-player Boys Division is within five shots of the lead.

The PING Langdon Farms Junior Classic, conducted by the American Junior Golf Association, features 84 of the nation's top junior golfers ages 13-18. Hosted by Langdon Farms Golf Club, this week's field includes players from nine states and Canada, five of whom are Polo Golf Junior All-Americans.

Mackenzie, who placed third at last year's championship, was pleased with her performance, but knew it could have been better. The future University of Washington golfer found that driving the ball well was good enough for today.

"I was pretty relaxed," Mackenzie said. "It was an average round. I'm not going to say that there is not room for improvement, because there is always room for improvement. But I'll be happy with three 71's at the end of the week."

Erin Andrews of Las Vegas, at 75, and Sarah Bassett of Spokane, Wash., at 76, will try to cut into Mackenzie's lead when play begins tomorrow.

The Boys Division is still up for grabs with well over half the field within striking distance. The leaders know that a low score from just about anyone can shake things up quickly.

"This round is history," Fladwood said of his 36-33--69. "I just need to play my own game. If you hit a bunch of greens at this course, scores can go low."

The four at the top all agreed that a solid game plan is necessary when so many are close to the lead. The key, they said, was sticking to it.

"I need to stay focused and not get rattled," Olson said after his 33-36--69 AJGA career-low tournament round. "My head never got in the way. I never got frustrated and kept plugging away. The key is to keep it that way."

Sean Packer of Sumner, Wash., fired the lone 1-under-par 70 in the Boys Division to join Olson, Fern, Fladwood and Higham in the top five.


A special highlight in the Boys Division came when Ian Clark of Federal Way, Wash., aced the 204-yard, par-3 17th with a 5-iron.

Second-round action begins Wednesday with tee times starting at 7:30 a.m. off the No. 1 and 10 tees.
