AJGA SAND BARRENS JUNIOR CHAMPIONSHIP

Swainton, New Jersey
June 11-14, 2001

STRONG BACK NINE LEADS JASON LOUTH TO FIRST AJGA VICTORY
Elizabeth Janangelo holds off a strong field to win Girls' title

SWAINTON, N.J. - Jason Louth of Victoria, Texas, shot a final-round 73 to win the Boys Division of the AJGA Sand Barrens Junior Championship. In the Girls Division, Elizabeth Janangelo of West Hartford, Conn., was able to hold off hard charging Saunderstown, R.I., native Anna Grzebien to capture the girls' title.

The third annual 54-hole boys and girls event, conducted by the American Junior Golf Association, featured 90 of the top junior golfers in the country. Twenty-three states and Canada were represented in this year's field.

After struggling on the front side with a 3-over-par 39, Louth put together a 2-under-par 34 on the back nine to win his first AJGA event. Carding birdies on Nos. 13, 14 and 15, Louth gained a lead he would not relinquish.

"I got down on myself after shooting the 39 on the front nine, but I saw it was still possible to make a comeback," said Louth. "I made a couple of putts and that put me back in it."

Louth, who had struggled to keep his driver in play all week, finally was able to make the necessary adjustments on the second nine.

"I was much more consistent with my driver today," said Louth who finished two strokes ahead of fellow second round co-leader Blaine Peffley of Lebanon, Pa. Stefan Wistorf of Niceville, Fla., also finished two shots back and recorded the low boy's final round with a 69.

Filling out the top five in the Boys Division were Benjamin Spitz of Norwell, Mass., and Tarik Can of New York, N.Y., at 217.

In the Girls Division, Janangelo fired a final-round 70 to win the tournament, despite not having used a driver the entire week.

"I had good course management out there today," said Janangelo. "I stayed with my game plan and played more conservatively. The key to this course is to keep the ball in play and I was able to do that. I also putted well when I had to."

Janangelo got a bit of a scare as she watched Anna Grzebien shoot a final-round 69, including a 32 on the front nine. But Janangelo birdied Nos. 14, 15 and 16 on her way to a back nine 34 to take the girls' championship.

"Anna played great," said Janangelo. "We were able to feed off of each other throughout the week. It means a lot to win against such strong competition."

Rounding out the top three in the Girls Division was Mary Ellen Grzebien of Saunderstown, R.I., at 223.

SWAINTON, N.J. - Final results from the AJGA SAND BARRENS JUNIOR CHAMPIONSHIP conducted by the American Junior Golf Association at Sand Barrens Golf Club, West-North Courses. Par: 36-36--72. Yardage: Boys: 6,842 Girls: 5,800.
