PANDOLFI SETS WOMEN'S COMPETITIVE COURSE RECORD
TO SEIZE LEAD AT AVILA
Dottley holds a two-shot lead in the Boys Division

TAMPA, Fla. - Jennifer Pandolfi of Navarre, Fla., fired a bogey-free round of 5-under-par 67 Wednesday to take the lead heading into the final round of the AJGA Avila Junior Classic, held at the par-72 Avila Golf & Country Club. Will Dottley of Madison, Miss., carded a 2-under-par 70 to maintain his lead in the Boys 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.

Pandolfi (74-67-141) birdied three of her first five holes en route to a 3-under-par 33 front nine. On the back, she pared the first three before making birdie on the par-4, 357-yard 13th. Pandolfi's fifth birdie came on No. 15, where she sank a 35-foot putt to finish the back nine at 2-under-par 34.

"I played well today," said Pandolfi, who hit 14 greens on the day. "I was sticking my irons pretty close, and the putts began to fall. It feels great to be the leader heading into the final round."

Julieta Granada of Bradenton, Fla., is in second place at 1-under-par (71-72-143) after two rounds of play. Mallory Code (72-76-148) of Tampa, Fla., Brittany Lincicome (75-73-148) of Pinellas Park, Fla., and Morgan Pressel (76-72-148) of Boca Raton, Fla., are stuck in a three-way tie for third at 148.

In the Boys Division, Dottley, who started on No. 10, pared his first eight holes before making birdie on the 18th to finish with a 1-under-par 35 first nine. On his back nine, he continued his solid play with eight pars and one birdie. Dottley got up and down from a bunker on the par-5, 507-yard third for his second birdie of the round.

"I played solid today," said Dottley, who is at 7-under for the tournament. "I really never gave myself a chance for any birdies. My goal coming in was to be under par for every nine holes and so far I've done that. I feel good going into the final round, and I think I have a good chance to win with the way I have been playing."

Nicholas Smith of Ocala, Fla., carded a 3-under-par 69 Wednesday and is in second place for the tournament (70-69-139), while Tyler Rucarean of Gainesville, Fla., is in third at 4-under-par (70-70-140). Scotty Campbell of Conway, Ark., sits in fourth place at 2-under-par (71-71-142), and Ryan Hillstrom Ft. Lauderdale, Fla., rounds out the top five at even (71-73-144).

Final-round tee times will begin at 7:30 a.m. on Thursday, July 4, off the Nos. 1 and 10 tees at Avila Golf & Country Club.
