NA, WITTENBERG FIGHT OFF RAINS TO LEAD AFTER TWO ROUNDS
Blasberg continues to lead Girls Division at 2-under-par 141

TARPON SPRINGS, Fla. - Kevin Na of Diamond Bar, Calif., and Casey Wittenberg of Memphis, Tenn., were able to withstand over a three hour rain delay Wednesday to lead after two rounds at the AJGA Rolex Tournament of Champions at 6-under-par 137.

In the Girls Division, Erica Blasberg of Corona, Calif., has a one-stroke lead after shooting a 3-over-par 74 on the Copperhead Course at The Westin Innisbrook Resort.

The Rolex Tournament of Champions, conducted by the American Junior Golf Association, features 170 players from 33 states and five foreign countries, and includes 56 Polo Golf Junior All-Americans. The Rolex Tournament of Champions is one of the AJGA's longest standing tournaments.

Na, who has made just one bogey in 36 holes, shot a 4-under-par 68 on the Island Course with 14 pars and four birdies.

"I hit the ball well, not as good as yesterday, though," Na said. "I made a lot of saves, but could have made more birdie putts."

Wittenberg fired a 5-under-par 66 on the Copperhead Course, only one stroke off his career best.

"The first two days is just about positioning," the 16-year-old said. "I played well after getting off to a rough start yesterday."

Wittenberg hit 16 greens in regulation and played bogey-free golf with 13 pars and five birdies for the day.

"I knew it was going to be a long day with the rains, so I just wanted to stay patient and hit greens," Wittenberg added.

Chasing Na and Wittenberg is Raleigh, N.C., native Webb Simpson. Simpson fired a 4-under-par 67 on the Copperhead course for a two-day total of 139. Jeff Overton of Evansville, Ind., and Jeff Bell of Plano, Texas, are tied at 2-under-par 141. Overton, an Indiana University signee, and Bell, the AJGA all-time 54-hole scoring record holder, both shot 1-over-par 72s on the Copperhead course.

In the Girls Division, Blasberg carded nines of 40-34 en route to a 2-under-par 141 two-day total.

Nicole Melton (71-71) of San Antonio, Texas, Whitney Wade (72-70) of Glasgow, Ky., and Lisa Ferrero of Lodi, Calif., are tied at 1-under-par 142, one stroke behind Blasberg.

Ferrero, the reigning U.S. Girls Junior Champion, shot the low round of the day with a 4-under-par 68 on Island Course.

"I hit the ball pretty well today and started making some putts," she said. "I hope to play the best I can and just keep playing solid the rest of the way."

Ferrero had 12 pars, five birdies and one bogey for the round.
