WITMAN GRABS ONE-SHOT LEAD AT HAWK POINTE
REED, WUESTHOFF PACE GIRLS DIVISION


WASHINGTON, N.J. - Tyler Witman fired a 2-under-par 70 Tuesday to take a one-stroke lead in the Boys Division, while Girls Division leaders Christie Reed and Sukjin Wuesthoff each shot 73 to share a one-stroke lead going into the second round of the AJGA Marsh Junior at Hawk Pointe.

The 54-hole event, sponsored by Marsh and conducted by the American Junior Golf Association, is being held at par-72 Hawk Pointe Golf Club. The field of 102 players includes participants from 14 states and Canada.

Witman, a native of Rehoboth, Del., recorded five birdies on the day. One highlight came on No. 14. After a drive left him with a poor lie in a divot, Witman stuck his next shot to within two feet for the birdie putt.

"Conditions were great today but the hole locations made the course extremely difficult," said the 17-year-old Witman. "Leading the field is a good start to any tournament. You can't go wrong being in first place in the early going."

Back one stroke at 71 are Jamie Wallace of Moorestown, N.J.; George Zolotas of Peabody, Mass.; and Joe April of Sewell, N.J. Tied for fifth, and rounding out the top five, are Adam Cohan of Wayne, Pa.; Blake Slaughter of Rockwall, Texas; Brian Travalja of Oradell, N.J.; and Mark Zbrzeznj of Lafayette Hill, Pa.

In the Girls Division, Reed of Coral Springs, Fla., and Wuesthoff of Toms River, N.J., played well enough to share the lead. Jenny Suh of Fairfax, Va., stands alone in third with a 74.

Reed, who is fresh off a win at the AJGA John Deere Classic Junior Championship last week, finished with three birdies and nearly aced No. 13. "I missed three or four putts inside of seven feet," said Reed. "I am going to work on that tonight and hopefully they will fall tomorrow."

With a recent win of her own at Hawk Pointe's U.S. Women's Amateur Qualifier, last month, Wuesthoff played a solid round with a birdie and 15 pars.

"I let a bunch of birdie opportunities slip away," the 15-year-old said. "I hope to go out tomorrow and make some putts."

Florida natives Jessica Castle of Plantation and Sookhee Baek of Bradenton are in fourth and fifth place, respectively. Castle finished with a 75 while Baek shot a 76 to put the five players within four shots of each other.

Second-round action gets under way at 7:30 a.m. Wednesday at Hawk Pointe. For more information, please contact tournament headquarters at (908) 689-8303.
