VARGAS TIES AJGA 18-HOLE RECORD TO PACE MATCH PLAY QUALIFIERS AT DISNEY
Aree Song Wongluekiet gets top girls' seed following second-round 67

LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. - James Vargas of Miami tied the AJGA boys 18-hole scoring record Wednesday with a 9-under-par 63 to pace the match play qualifiers in the Boys Division of the Polo Golf Junior Classic. Aree Song Wongluekiet of Bradenton, Fla., fired a 67 in the Girls Division to head into match play as the girls' top seed.
The 24th annual Polo Golf Junior Classic, conducted by the American Junior Golf Association on Walt Disney World Resort's Palm and Magnolia Courses, began with 170 players from 29 states and seven foreign countries. Thirty-two players in each division advanced to match play after surviving the 36-hole cut. Former champions of the event include Tiger Woods, Beth Bauer, Stewart Cink and Grace Park.
Vargas captured medalist honors in the Boys Division by a wide six-stroke margin. He posted the low tournament round on both days, including his record-tying 63 Wednesday on the Palm Course.
"It was a perfect round of golf," the 17-year-old senior said. "I played really, really well today. I drove it perfectly, hit my irons close to the hole and made putts."
This is the third time this year Vargas has grabbed medalist honors at a match play event. He topped all qualifiers at the U.S. Amateur Public Links Championship and the U.S. Junior Amateur earlier in 2001. Vargas, though, won just one match in those two events and knows the slate is wiped clean.
"I have to forget about what I've done the last two days because it doesn't really matter," the University of Florida signee said. "The tournament really starts tomorrow."
A pair of Texans grabbed the next two seeds as Jeff Bell (69-66-135) of Plano and Ryan Posey (67-70-137) of Dallas earned seeds two and three, respectively. Rounding out the top four seeds is Matt Every (70-67-137) of Daytona Beach, Fla.
In the Girls Division, Wongluekiet carded five birdies to jump to the top of the leaderboard with a 67 on the Magnolia Course. The three-time, first-team Polo Golf Junior All-American stayed aggressive, even though she knew she had a match play spot locked up.
"When I know I'm playing well I just try to keep hitting them at the pins," the 15-year-old said. "Today I was hitting my approach shots closer and I holed some long putts coming in."
Wongluekiet has tasted match play success before - she won the U.S. Girls Junior Championship two years ago - but she has plenty of talented company. The last two champions of the Polo Golf Junior Classic also advanced to match play. Defending champion Elizabeth Janangelo of West Hartford, Conn., is the 10th seed, while Aree's twin sister, Naree, is seeded fourth.
Brittany Lincicome (68-73-141) of Pinellas Park, Fla., is seeded second while Cindy Shin (70-71-141) of Coppell, Texas, earned the third seed.
First-round match play action gets under way Thursday at 7:30 a.m. on the first and 10th tees of both the Palm and Magnolia Courses. Play moves solely to the Magnolia Course when the second round begins Thursday afternoon.
