BARR WINS INAUGURAL PETE AND ALICE DYE TITLE
Reed takes control to claim her third career AJGA title

BRIDGEPORT, W.Va. - Two juniors captured the inaugural Pete and Alice Dye AJGA championship title Thursday after combating another hot and humid day. Dustin Barr of Mooresville, N.C., claimed his first AJGA victory with a 71-72-74-217 total. Christie Reed of Coral Springs, Fla., carded a 1-over-par 73 to seize her third AJGA Girls Division title.

Conducted by the American Junior Golf Association, the inaugural championship features 84 players from 16 states, Washington, D.C., and Canada, including ten West Virginia natives.

After placing 10th at the Hargray Junior Classic at Indigo Run, June 25-28, in Hilton Head Island, S.C., the 17-year-old Barr carded three birdies and couldn't have picked a better tournament to win.

"I'm ecstatic," Barr said. "To go out on top on a great golf course is an unbelievable feeling."

Barr kept his game plan simple knowing the competition was tough in the 63-player field.

"I knew I had to play it safe and make par," Barr said. "I wanted the opponents make birdies to beat me."

Tony Dibitetto of Rochester, N.Y., came up short carding a 70-75-76-221 to finish in second place. Spencer Provow of Murfreesboro, Tenn., and Josh Esler of Wauconda, Ill., tied for third with a three-round total of 222. Ryan Siekmann of Dublin, Ohio, rounded out the top-five boys at 223.

For the 16-year-old Reed, she was happy to have endured after falling ill on the back nine Wednesday. The Florida native actually considered withdrawing from the tournament on the 10th hole.

"I'm glad that I stuck it out," Reed said. "I knew I had a chance to win if I stayed with the game."

Reed is a top AJGA contender who is thrilled to have another hard-earned victory in her pocket.

"I'm very happy," Reed continued. "I haven't won in two years so it's exciting."

Noriko Nakazaki of Hanover Park, Ill., came up two strokes short of claiming her first AJGA title. With the second-place finish, the 17-year-old Nakazaki tied her AJGA career-high finish. Dayna Burleigh of Horsham, Pa., carded a three-round total of 78-75-73-226 to finish in third place and round out the top-three girls.
