MILLER, LESLIE AND KIM LEAD AT 5-UNDER 67
Five one stroke behind leaders in EDS Boys Junior Championship

CORINTH, Texas - Zack Miller of San Rafael, Calif., Craig Leslie of Spokane, Wash., and Kenny Kim of Cerritos, Calif., lead after the first round of the EDS Boys Junior Championship with a score of 5-under-par 67.

The 72-hole tournament, conducted by the American Junior Golf Association, features 152 players representing 23 states, Singapore, New Zealand and Canada, and includes 41 Texas natives. It is being held at the par-72 Oakmont Country Club. Past champions of the event include Jim Furyk (1987), David Duval (1989), Tiger Woods (1992), Ty Tryon (1999) and Matthew Rosenfeld (2001).

After a drive into the thick rough on his first hole, No. 10, Miller, 18, was able to punch out to 30 feet in front of the green.

"It was a great save," Miller said. "It just got me off on the right foot."

Miller (35-32-67) went on a par run until he got to his back nine where he slammed in four birdies, totaling five for the day.

"The key today was I hit 16 greens and made the putts I should have," Miller said. "I didn't do anything special out there."

Leslie, 17, planned to shoot around par for the day, but he was able to accomplish a lot more.
"I had great wedge play today," Leslie said. "The big part was that I wanted to putt well because I'm not used to Bermuda greens. I think my longest birdie putt all day was around 12 feet."

Although Leslie doesn't play high school golf because his high school doesn't have a team, his best previous AJGA finish was third at the PING Junior at Trophy Lake in 2001.

"I'm just glad to be here," Leslie (34-33-67) said. "Last year I only finished in the top third at this event so it's nice to be back."

Leslie was able to get great starts at the beginning of his front and back nines with birdies on Nos. 1, 3, 5, 10, 11 and 14.

"Although I only made par on the par 5s, they really helped me out," Leslie said. "They were all down wind for me today. I don't think I really took advantage about where I was at on them."

For Kim, 16, a weather delay, which lasted more than an hour, broke his run for the top of the leaderboard.

"I was 6-under going before the rain," Kim (34-33-67) said. "Afterwards I was slicing my driver, but luckily I had good up-and-downs for par on the last four holes."

Log jammed in fourth place at 4-under par 68 are Ricky Romano of Murrieta, Calif., Jay Choe of Yorba Linda, Calif., Ryan Lenahan of Grosse Pointe Shores, Mich., and Seung Su Han of Chino Hills, Calif. Abd Scotty Campbell of Conway, Ark.

Second-round action begins off the No. 1 and 10 tees with the first wave of tee times from 7:30-9:18 a.m. The second wave of the tee times runs from noon until 1:48 p.m.
