CALIFORNIA NATIVES CLAIM TEN OF THIRTEEN SPOTS IN AJGA QUALIFIER
AJGA conducts a weekend of tournament qualifiers at Palm Valley Golf Club

GOODYEAR, Ariz. - Attempting to qualify for next weekend's AJGA Arizona Junior Classic, 67 boys and 18 girls hit the links Saturday at Palm Valley Golf Club to compete in the first of two AJGA weekend tournament qualifiers.

In the Boys Division, both shooting 1-under-par 71, Erik Coover of Scottsdale, Ariz., and Tim Johnson of Marblehead, Mass., captured co-medalist honors and a spot in the Easter Weekend Tournament. California natives Jennifer Osborn of Huntington Beach and Amie Cochran of Torrance shared medalist honors in the Girls Division after also carding 71s.

"The down wind was really strong, which forced me to take one shot at a time," said the 17-year-old Johnson.

Agreeing with Johnson, Osborn found it difficult to play her ideal game.

"The wind really made it tough to judge the distance of my shots, but luckily I made a lot of good putts," she said.

However, the outstanding shape of the course seemed to balance out the windy conditions.

"The course and especially the greens were in excellent shape that allowed me to sink some important putts and enjoy playing," said Coover.

Joining Coover and Johnson as Boys Division qualifiers were five California natives: Justin Mangubat of Bonita; Michael McCaig of Fountain Valley; Kyle Shelly of San Diego; John Skelton of Laverne; and Colin Wilcox of Camarillo. Rounding out the Boys Division qualifiers and representing the host state of Arizona is Colter Kautzmann of Glendale.

The three other Girls Division qualifiers all hail from California. Minnie Choi of Fountain Valley, Tina Eng of Monterey Park and Sung Eun Kim of Diamond Bar all punched their tickets into next weekend's event with a solid qualifier round Saturday.

The second qualifier for the AJGA Arizona Classic will be held Sunday with a 1:00 p.m. shotgun start at Palm Valley Golf Club.
