OSBORN GRABS LEAD AT CHAMPIONSGATE WITH CAREER DAY
Lee breaks away from pack in Boys Division

CHAMPIONSGATE, Fla. - Jennifer Osborn of Huntington Beach, Calif., fired a career-best 4-under-par 68 to storm into the Girls Division lead Friday at the AJGA Callaway Golf Junior All-Star Series Championship. In the Boys Division, Albert Lee of Los Angeles moved into sole possession of the Boys Division lead with a 1-over-par 73.

The 54-hole tournament, conducted by the American Junior Golf Association, features 78 boys and girls (ages 13-15) representing 19 states and Canada. To qualify for this season-ending championship, the participants in the boys division needed to garner a top 10 finish in a 2002 Junior All-Star event and a top five finish in the girls division.

Osborn, who began her day on No. 10, started strong with a pair of early birdies to help her make the turn at 1-under-par.

Osborn was near perfect on her final nine holes, sinking a 12-footer for eagle on the par-5, 450-yard second and following it with a birdie before ending with a string of six pars.

"I was making a lot of putts today and didn't make many mistakes," Osborn said. "I fought the whole way."
Osborn, at 142, has a six-stroke lead over Stefanie Page of The Woodlands, Texas, heading into the final round. Lauren Mielbrecht of Gulfstream, Fla., sits in third at 149.

"I hope it's a big enough gap," Osborn said. "I'm just going to take it shot-by-shot."

Also starting on No. 10, Lee found trouble early in the breezy weather with back-to-back bogeys on Nos. 15 and 16 en route to a 2-over 38 on his opening nine.

"On my front nine, I was struggling," the 15-year-old said. "I just tried to forget about it. I looked up at the sky and didn't think about anything. I just tried to play golf and have fun and then I started doing well and making putts."

Lee regrouped on the back with a birdie on the 509-yard, par-5 second, and followed it by draining a 20-footer for birdie two holes later to help push him atop the leaderboard at 143.

"I'm proud of myself," Lee said. "It was unbelievable in the practice round, I was hitting my driver bad, couldn't hit my irons straight, couldn't putt, but it was just the practice round. I'm happy where I'm at now, but it's not over."

Travis Esway of Granite Bay, Calif., Michael Green of Augusta, Ga., Bronson Burgoon of The Woodlands, Texas, and Matthew Swan of Montgomery, Ala., are locked in a tie for second at 146.

The Callaway Golf Junior All-Star Series was created in 1998 to give younger AJGA members more opportunities to play competitive golf. This collection of events, designed for boys and girls 13-15, was a resounding success in its first year and it expanded to six events in 1999. In 2002, there were six tournaments that featured a Day of Education, conducted by the AJGA and David Leadbetter Golf Academy staff, and two days of stroke play competition.

Final-round tee times will begin at 7:30 a.m. Saturday, November 30 off the No. 1 and 10 tees at ChampionsGate Golf Resort, International Course.
