TRIO TIED FOR LEAD AT ROLEX GIRLS JUNIOR CHAMPIONSHIP
Two-under-par 70 leads after opening round

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. - Rain couldn't slow down Alexandra Caffrey of Rumford, R.I., In-Bee Park, of Eustis, Fla., and Lauren Todd, of Phoenix. All three shot a first-round 2-under-par 70 to grab an early lead in the opening round of the AJGA Rolex Girls Junior Championship.

The 54-hole tournament, conducted by the American Junior Golf Association, features 82 girls representing 24 states, Japan and the Philippines and is being played at the LPGA International's Champions Course. Twenty-six participants from Florida are included in the field.

Todd had to leave her drive on No. 11 in the bunker to take shelter from rain but returned after an hour delay to par the hole and finish even-par on the back nine.

"That hole really kept it going for me," Todd, 17, said. "I actually enjoyed the rain, it helped."
Todd's momentum began early as she birdied Nos. 1, 2 and 9, but didn't dwindle as she finished out her round with a birdie on the 482-yard, par-5 thirteenth hole.

"I just want to continue to hit fairways tomorrow," Todd said. " My irons are very reliable right now."

The 13-year-old Park, who had birdies on Nos. 1 and 6, thought things went well on the front nine before playing the back nine in even-par fashion.

"I thought I was really hitting my drivers and irons well today," Park said. "Hopefully tomorrow I can come out and do the same."

Caffrey, who won the Rhode Island Intercollegiate Girls State Championship last week, continued her top-notch play of late with six birdies including four on the back nine.

"It just felt right," said Caffrey, whose best finish was a tie for fifth at the AJGA Tucker-Anthony Junior last year. "This was my lowest round in the last two years. I was kind of in a slump. But today, everything went right and came together."

Second round action continues tomorrow with tee times from 7:30-9:27 a.m. off the Nos. 1 and 10 tees.
