Page nabs win in Girls Division

KINGWOOD, Texas - Jae An of Rotorua, New Zealand, shot 4-under par 68 to win the AJGA Callaway Golf Junior All-Star Classic at Kingwood while Stefanie Page, of The Woodlands, Texas, won the Girls Division with a 3-over par 75.

The 18-hole tournament, conducted by the American Junior Golf Association, featured 99 players representing 18 states, New Zealand and Japan. Fifty-nine Texas natives were included in the field. Kingwood was the fourth of seven stops for the Callaway Golf Junior All-Star Series, designed specifically for boys and girls ages 13-15.

The tournament, originally scheduled for 36 holes, was shortened to an 18-hole shotgun after hard rain made the course unplayable for the first round.

In his first AJGA event, An (31-37--68) started on No. 12 and showed he was ready to play his best.

"I birdied six holes, which helped me out a lot," An, 14, said. "My driver and irons helped me get to 68 even though I missed many putts."

An birdied Nos. 1, 3, 5, 8, 9 and 17.

Kyle Kelley of Houston, Texas, and Ryan Roberge of The Woodlands, Texas, pulled in a second place finish shooting 1-under par 71.

After a rocky start on his first nine holes, Kelley (34-37--71), who started on No. 9, said he was able to get on top of his game after a birdie on No. 17 and a chip in for par on No. 18.

"Finally, on my back nine I was hitting fairways and realized how to read the greens to start making some putts," Kelley, 15, said.

Meanwhile, Roberge (35-36--71) said he found his home on the par 5s.

"I just waited for the par 5s," Roberge, 15, said. "I played them 4-under today. I just kept telling myself that I could make up shots there."

Rounding out the Top 5, Christopher Ward of McKinney, Texas, Brett Kanda of La Crescenta, Calif., and Chris Huffer of Denver, Colo., shot par 72 to tie for fourth place.

After a rough start to her game, Page, 15, said she was on a streak of pars and then was able to drain a couple of birdies to get her back to par after No. 10.

"I was really making my putts to help me get back to par," Page said. "Overall I think I played well with being so wet."

Today's win is Page's best finish in an AJGA event.

In the Girls Division, Hiroko Ayada of Takamatsu, Japan, came in second place with a score of 5-over 77. Lauren Johnson of The Woodlands, Texas, Ginny Brown of Austin, Texas, and Meredith McMahan of San Antonio, Texas, tied for third at 7-over 79.
