DORE CLOSES DOOR, EDGES TEXTER IN PLAYOFF AT HAWK POINTE
Reed cruises to nine stroke Girls Division win

WASHINGTON, N.J. - Kevin Dore of Dundas, Ontario, surpassed Jarred Texter of Millersville, Pa., on the second hole of a sudden-death playoff for the Boys Division victory Thursday at the AJGA Marsh Junior at Hawk Pointe. In the Girls Division, Christie Reed of Coral Springs, Fla., extended a four-shot lead to nine shots and won her third AJGA event of the summer.

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

On the challenging 18th hole - a 442-yard par-4 with a large tree in the center of the fairway - Dore won the playoff thanks to a hooking approach shot around the fairway tree onto the center of the green. Dore (74-71-68-213) then two-putted for the victory after Texter made bogey after driving into the fairway bunker.

"This is the highlight of my summer so far," said Dore, who will be making his next appearance close to home at the AJGA's Ontario event next week. "After regulation I was excited just because I was in the playoff."

"I made a downhill 10-footer on No. 1 to get started," said Dore, who shot a 4-under-par 68 with an impressive 5-under 31 on the front nine.

Texter (74-72-67-213) started the day three shots off the lead in seventh place and charged forward with a tournament low-round score 67 on an eagle and five birdies.

Adam Cohan (73-70-72-215) of Wayne, Pa., took third; first- and second-round leader Tyler Witman (70-73-74-217) of Rehoboth, Del., finished fourth, and Joe April (71-73-74-218) of Sewell, N.J., placed fifth to round out the Boys Division top five.

In the Girls Division, Reed (73-70-70-213) shot 2-under-par Thursday to win back-to-back national victories. Last week she won the AJGA John Deere Classic Junior Championship in Iowa.

Reed's third victory of the summer, it was the first time she finished the tournament in the red. "Aside from winning the tournament, I really wanted to have a tournament total under par."

Six birdies and nine pars carried Reed to the tournament low-round score en route to the victory. "The course set up nicely for me," Reed said. "I was able to cut off the holes with solid drives off the tees and, after a few three-putts in the first round, I was able to make some putts and have some good ups and downs."

Sujkin Wuesthoff (73-74-75-222) of Toms River, N.J., and Jennie Suh (74-75-74-223) of Fairfax, Va., finished the tournament in second and third place, respectively.

Rounding out the top five in the Girls Division were Sookhee Baek (76-73-77-226) of Bradenton, Fla., and Nannette Hill (78-74-83-235) of Pelham Manor, N.Y.
