Lue paces Girls Division; Hestley leads the Boys

KATY, Texas - Fourteen players earned spots in next weekend's AJGA TaylorMade-adidas Golf Junior at Whispering Pines Sunday via two qualifiers held Sunday. Stephanie Lue of Houston earned medalist honors in the Girls Division with a 1-under 71 in the morning and Palmer Hestley of Kingwood, Texas, fired the low round of the day in the Boys Division with a 2-under 70 in the afternoon.

The qualifiers, conducted by the American Junior Golf Association at the par-72 Willow Fork Country Club, featured a total of 173 boys and girls from eight states.

Lue, a 17-year-old competing in her first national event, was pleased with her 71, her best competitive round to date.

"I played about as well as I could today," said Lue, a high school junior. "I'm looking forward to seeing how I stack up against the great field next weekend."

Also earning a spot in next week's tournament was Alice Kim of Los Angeles, who carded a 3-over 75 then earned her spot in the tournament with a par on the first playoff hole.

Hestley qualified for the AJGA's annual Easter Weekend event for the second straight year by playing a round that included an impressive six birdies.

"I began the day really well and finished with three birdies on the final six holes," Hestley said. "It's easy to make bogies out here so I knew I had to make a lot of birdies to go low."

Also capturing spots from the afternoon qualifier with 1-under 71s were Kevin Newman of League City, Texas; James Minahan of Spring, Texas; and Matt Boyd of Sugar Land, Texas. The final two spots up for grabs in the afternoon qualifier went to Martin Ureta of Tampa, Fla., and Jeff Cairns of Austin, Texas, who both posted even-par 72s.

An additional six boys qualified in the morning round. Four players carded even-par 72s, including Bryan Boyd of Austin, Texas; Gatlyn McDonald of New Braunfels, Texas; Brock McDowell of League City, Texas; and Derek Rogers of Houston. Qualifying with 73s were two other Texans, Scooter Jefferson of Montgomery and Creighton Honeck of Austin.

Next weekend's tournament, which will be held at Whispering Pines Golf Club in Trinity, Texas, will feature 156 players from over 15 states. Players slated to compete include reigning Polo Golf Boys Junior Player of the Year Matthew Rosenfeld of Plano, Texas, and Girls Division defending champion Mallory Code of Tampa, Fla. Code, who lives with Cystic Fibrosis, was recently awarded the Michael Brennan Courage Award by the Boomer Esiason Foundation.
