BASS FIRES 4-UNDER-PAR 68 TO TAKE CONTROL AT FURMAN
Four tied for lead in Girls Division

GREENVILLE, S.C. - Seventeen-year-old J.D. Bass fired a 4-under-par 32 on the front nine en route to a 68 and the first-round lead of the AJGA Henry-Griffitts Junior at Furman on the par-72 Furman University Golf Club Tuesday.

Monique Gesualdi of St. Augustine, Fla.; Blair Lamb of Flat Rock, N.C.; Mayule Tomimbang of Kissimmee, Fla.; and Haley Gildea of East Greenwich, R.I., are all tied for the lead in the Girls Division after shooting even-par 72s.

The 54-hole event, conducted by the American Junior Golf Association, features 99 players representing 16 states, the Philippines, Canada and Singapore. This is second of three tournaments Henry-Griffitts will sponsor during the 2002 season.

Bass, a native of Fairview, N.C., got off to a good start with a birdie on the first hole. Bass added three more birdies on the front, and another on No. 14 to move to 5-under-par on the day. His only bogey came on the par-5 15th after an errant drive, but he would par the final three holes to hold a two-shot lead heading into the second round.

"I played the front nine solid and hit every green," Bass said. "I didn't hit my driver very well on the back, so it was more of a struggle."

Jon Curran of Hopkinton, Mass.; Casey Flattery of Sparta, N.C.; and Major Manning of Clarksville, Ga., are all tied for second after rounds of 70. Eight players are tied for fourth at 71.

Gesualdi fired a 33 on the front, but found some trouble on the back, shooting a 39.

"I felt pretty good with my round," Gesualdi said. "I struggled a little on the back, but my putting was pretty good today. Being in a four-way tie will be tough, but I am gonna play hard and they will have to catch me."

Gildea had a solid front nine with a bogey-free 34, and also added a birdie on the par-3 14th.

"The front played easier than the back," Gildea said. "The key was keeping the ball in play and putting well."

Second-round tee times will begin at 7 a.m. on Wednesday, June 5, off the No. 1 tee at Furman University Golf Club.
