PARK CAPTURES GIRLS CHAMPIONSHIP WITH 6-UNDER-PAR-210
Lang fires final-round 69 to finish second

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. - Thirteen-year-old In-Bee Park, of Eustis Fla., captured the title at the AJGA Rolex Girls Junior Championship with a 6-under-par-210.

The 54-hole tournament, conducted by the American Junior Golf Association, featured 82 girls representing 24 states, Japan and the Philippines. Twenty-six participants from Florida were included in the field. The tournament was held at the LPGA International Champions Course.

In the final round Park carded six birdies to maintain her consistent play en route to a tournament low-round of 4-under-par 68.

Park said her motivation for keeping up her strong level of play in the final level was her father.

"My father leaves for Korea tomorrow and he said when I get down to think about him," Park said. "Today was like a send-off present for him."

Park has had a strong presence on the leaderboards in AJGA competition thus far. This year, Park came in second at the AJGA Thunderbird International Junior and third at the AJGA TaylorMade-Adidas Golf Junior at Chateau Elan.

Defending champion Brittany Lang, 16, of McKinney, Texas, pulled into second place in the final round after a slow start to the tournament. Even in the last round, Lang felt that everything wasn't working in her favor as it had last year, when she won the 2001 Lucent Technology Girls Junior Championship.

"I am not one to be patient when the putts aren't falling," Lang said. " I had to tell myself I would get it next time, but I was upset about all the missed opportunities."

While keeping away from bogies in the final two rounds, Lang (73-70-69--212) birdied Nos. 6, 14 and 16 and was par for the remaining 16 holes.

"I was trying to stay on my streak this year and ride on that after a tough first round," Lang said. "You can't win a tournament on the first day though."

Rounding out the top five finishers at the tournament, May Wood, 18, of Signal Mountain, Tenn., came in third place with a 71-72-71--214. Lauren Todd, 17, of Phoenix, finished fourth with a score of 70-71-74--215, while Brittany Lincicome, 16, of Seminole, Fla. was fifth with a 71-71-74--216.
