COHAN, WITMAN DEADLOCKED AFTER TWO DAYS AT HAWK POINTE
Reed Builds Four-Shot Lead in Girls Division

WASHINGTON, N.J. - Adam Cohan of Wayne, Pa., and Tyler Witman of Rehoboth, Del., are tied for the Boys Division lead after solid second rounds Wednesday at the AJGA Marsh Junior at Hawk Pointe. In the Girls Division, Christie Reed of Coral Springs, Fla., has a four-shot lead as she tries to win her second AJGA event in as many weeks.

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.

Cohan, who entered the second round tied for fifth, charged into a share of the lead by recording a 2-under-par 70. He recorded four birdies on the day, including three on the front nine.

"I started off hot with a birdie on No. 1 and I was even or better throughout the day," said Cohan, who took second earlier this summer at the AJGA Fieldstone Junior Classic. "My goal today was to get back to even par. Tomorrow I want to hit greens and not miss them on the wrong side."

Witman, who took a one-shot lead into day two after opening with a 70, didn't slip from the top of the leaderboard after a second-round 73.

"I'm just trying to play solid golf," the 17-year-old said. "You can be aggressive out here but you need to know when to lay off when you have tough pins."

Rounding out the top five in a three-way tie for third are Joe April (71-73-144) of Sewell, N.J.; Skip Clasper (75-69-144) of North Potomac, Md.; and Jamie Wallace (71-73-144) of Moorestown, N.J.

In the Girls Division, Reed posted the lowest round of the tournament in the Girls Division - a 2-under-par 70 - to take sole possession of first place. It's a spot on the leaderboard Reed's been before. Last week she won the AJGA John Deere Classic Junior Championship in Iowa.
"The key to today was my driver," said Reed, who made two birdies in her bogey-free round. "I had confidence with it all day and I only missed one fairway. I'm going to go out there tomorrow and give it my best."

Three other players are within six shots of Reed heading into Thursday. Sukjin Wuesthoff (73-74-147) of Toms River, N.J. is alone in second, while Jennie Suh (74-75-149) of Fairfax, Va., and Sookhee Baek (76-73-149) of Bradenton, Fla., share third.

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