Park leads wire-to-wire to win by 10 strokes in Girls Division

MIDLAND, Texas - Kevin Schultz of Richardson, Texas, recorded his second-consecutive 70 to win the Boys Division of the Callaway Golf Junior All-Star Classic at Midland with a 4-under-par 140. Angela Park of Torrance, Calif., led wire-to-wire in the Girls Division to claim the title with a 69-74--143. This is the first AJGA title for both Schultz and Park.

The 36-hole tournament, conducted by the American Junior Golf Association, featured 99 players representing 21 states and Canada and included 55 Texas natives. Midland was the first of seven stops for the Callaway Golf Junior All-Star Series, designed specifically for boys and girls ages 13-15.

Schultz, playing in the second-to-last group of the day, entered the final round trailing by one stroke. He carded three birdies and recorded only one bogey in the final round to jump into the lead and eventually grab the title. The 15-year-old birdied the 505-yard, par-5 fourth to get things rolling. After a par on No. 5, he birdied the 374-yard, par-4 sixth to move to 1-under-par at the turn.

Schultz continued his steady play on the back nine notching a birdie on the 146-yard, par-3 11th. It proved to be enough to edge Clayton Broyles (69-72--141) of West Monroe, La., and Guillermo Chavez (70-72--142) of Clovis, N.M., for the title.

"I played solid today," Schultz said. "I didn't change a thing from yesterday. I wanted to hit a lot of greens and knew the putts would fall."

Schultz was happy to be playing in the event and was grateful he was able to climb to the top of the leaderboard.

"In the AJGA it is just hard to get into tournaments," he said. "I just tried to play well, get some exemptions and have a good start to the summer."

Schultz took some added pleasure in his first win knowing that he was not only taking a trophy home, but some bragging rights as well.

"This means a lot to me," he said. "My two older brothers played in a lot of these events and never won. I know how hard and exclusive it is to win with such quality players in the AJGA."

Bronson Burgoon (71-72--143) of The Woodlands, Texas, and Mitch Kihara (69-75--144) of Vancouver, British Columbia, rounded out the top five.

The only thing hotter than Park's game was the temperatures in the 90s. The 13-year-old, playing in her first AJGA event, scorched the field to win by 10 shots. She entered the day with a seven-stroke lead but did not back off her aggressive play knowing she could play conservatively and still have a good chance to win.

"I expected to win," Park said. "I didn't think any different than I did in the first round. I wanted to shoot under par, but unfortunately I didn't. My putting was weak. I tried to attack the flags, but it was just not working. I hit a lot of greens in regulation, but I kept two putting."

Park recorded one birdie on the day but more importantly picked up a lot of confidence with the win.

"I feel like I can compete with a lot of the other girls," Park said.

Jennifer Hong (76-77--153) of Windermere, Fla., finished second while Chaneng Joe of Poway, Calif., (81-73--154) and Meredith McMahan (78-76--154) of San Antonio tied for third.
