DOTTLEY SETS BAR WITH LOW ROUND OF 67 AT AVILA
Granada sits atop leader board in Girls Division

TAMPA, Fla. - Will Dottley of Madison, Miss., fired a 5-under-par 67 Tuesday to capture the lead after first-round play at the AJGA Avila Junior Classic, held this week at the par-72 Avila Golf & Country Club. Julieta Granada from Bradenton, Fla., posted a 1-under-par 71 to take control of first place in the Girls Division.

The Avila Junior Classic, conducted by the American Junior Golf Association, features 84 players, including boys and girls representing 20 states, Mexico and Paraguay. Fifty-one players hail from the state of Florida.

Dottley, who finished tied for second in his last AJGA tournament at the end of May, scorched the front nine, knocking down birdie putts on the first four holes. After a bogey on No. 6 and a string of pars that put him at 3-under on the front nine, Dottley found himself in trouble on the 402-yard, par-4 10th. However, Dottley got up-and-down from 20 yards past the green to save par. The 17-year-old proceeded to birdie Nos. 11 and 13 for a round of 33-34-67.

"That was a big par," said Dottley about his save on No. 10. "I probably would have finished even if I hadn't pared that hole. I putted well all day. Every time I gave myself a good birdie chance, I made it."

Dottley holds a three-stoke advantage over both Nicholas Smith (36-34-70) of Ocala, Fla., and Tyler Rucarean (35-35-70) of Gainesville, Fla., who are in a tie for second place. Scotty Campbell of Conway, Ark., and Ryan Hillstrom of Ft. Lauderdale, Fla., finished the day in a tie for fourth at 1-under-par 71.

In the Girls Division, Granada finished her bogey-free round with one birdie, which came on the 480-yard, par-5 third. Granada hit a 6-iron from 140 yards out to within 15 feet of the hole and sunk the putt for birdie. The 15-year-old hit 14 greens en route to a round of 35-36-71.

"I had a lot of opportunities to make birdies on the front, but that was the only one that went in," said Granada about her lone birdie. "The course was playing pretty long with all the rain, and the flags on the back nine were all back. It was hard out there today."

Tampa, Fla., native Mallory Code is one stroke behind the leader in second place at even-par 72. Jennifer Pandolfi of Navarre, Fla., is in third place after shooting 39-35-74.

Second-round tee times will begin at 7:30 a.m., Wednesday, July 3, off the Nos. 1 and 10 tees at Avila Golf & Country Club.
