HAN CONTINUES HOT STREAK AT CLUBCORP MISSION HILLS
Lee's 68 leads the way in Girls Division

RANCHO MIRAGE, Calif. - Seung Su Han of Chino Hills, Calif., fired a 6-under-par 66 to take the first-round lead at the AJGA ClubCorp Junior at Mission Hills. In the Girls Division, Jennie Lee of Huntington Beach, Calif., took the lead with a 4-under-par 68.

The 54-hole event, conducted by the American Junior Golf Association, is being held on the par-72 Palmer Course at Mission Hills Country Club. The 84-player field features players from eight states, including 70 California natives and 13 Polo Golf Junior All-Americans.

Han got off to a good start with a birdie on the first hole after his drive went left. He finished the front-nine at 1-under-par. Han birdied the last three holes, including a 30-foot putt and 20-yard chip-in for birdie, to finish the back nine at 5-under-par and card a first-round 66.

"I started off a little rough today, but overall I think I played really well," Han said. "My drives off the first few holes went left and I was getting frustrated. Luckily, I was able to make up for it with decent putting. However, I was disappointed that I had two three-putts from about 15 feet."

Han, who hit 16 greens in regulation during his round, won the inaugural Chrysler AJGA Boys Invitational just two weeks ago and the AJGA Callaway Golf Junior All-Star Championship Series last November. The 15-year-old said he wants to work on his putting and hit more fairways during the second round.

"This course is really nice and fun to play," Han said. "The greens are really fast so I had a lot of putts go past the hole by about five feet. I'm going to try my best again tomorrow and see what happens."

Pansing Singhaseni of Beverly Hills, Calif., is in second place after shooting 67. The Texas A&M signee carded six birdies and one bogey on the day.

California natives Daniel Im of La Mirada, Jay Choe of Yorba Linda and Jimmy Harris of El Cajon round out the Boys Division top five at 4-under-par 68.

Lee turned in a 68 after hitting every fairway and green in regulation during her round. Her 1-under-par and bogey-free front nine included a birdie on the par-3 137-yard fourth hole. Four birdies and only one bogey on the back-nine helped Lee to 4-under-par for the round.

"I set myself up well today," Lee said. "I had some short putts for birdie and even made a few long ones."

Lee, who finished second at the AJGA Morgan Run Junior last week, credited her field-leading round to safe and consistent playing.

"My goal for today was to play safe and not go for it all," Lee said. "I thought that I'd shoot around par so I'm really happy with my round. Today I played really consistent so I can't complain."

Three California natives are behind Lee at 71. Polo Golf Junior All-American and University of Arizona signee Erica Blasberg of Corona, Angela Park of Torrance, and Vanessa Brockett of Los Angeles finished the day three shots behind Lee and tied for second place.
