GIBSON, NELSON EMERGE VICTORIOUS AT SOUTH PADRE
Pair top field, wind to share medallist honors


LAGUNA VISTA, Texas - David Gibson of Corpus Christi, Texas, and Jon Nelson of Spring, Texas, shared medalist honors Sunday at the AJGA Ashworth Postseason Junior at South Padre Island.

Conducted by the American Junior Golf Association, the Ashworth Postseason Junior at South Padre Island featured 78 boys representing six states. Sixty-two Texans competed in the event, which was held at South Padre Island Golf Club.

Gibson (75-76-151) used one of the strongest closing rounds of the day to jump from an eight-way tie for fifth into a share of the top spot. His experience playing in the wind came in handy on Sunday.

"The wind was tough but I think I had an advantage being from Corpus (Christi)," the 16-year-old said. "I really didn't think I was going to win today. I just tried to go out and play well."

Nelson (70-81-151), who held the lead heading into Sunday's final round, held on as scores climbed due to a constant three-club wind. A strong start helped the 17-year-old stay at the top of the leaderboard.

"I birdied two of the first four holes," said Nelson, who hit the flagstick en route to birdie on No. 2. "I struck the ball really well but just didn't putt well. I'm not used to these fast greens."
For their efforts Gibson and Nelson each earned three automatic entries into open AJGA events in 2003.

Pat Strandemo (71-81-152) of Encinitas, Calif., took third place, while Luke Calcatera (75-79-154) of Keller, Texas, and Mark Lindsey (75-79-154) of Houston shared fourth.

Strandemo, Calcatera and Lindsey each earned two 2003 entries for their top-five finishes.

Earning one automatic entry after finishing in the top 15 were Brandon Jones of San Antonio, Texas; Mitch Hendon of Burleson, Texas; Matt Powell of Coppell, Texas; Gregory Catlett of Corpus Christi, Texas; Michael Mullin of Austin, Texas; Blayne Rhynsburger of San Antonio, Texas; Phillip Williams of Houston; Donald Nielsen of El Dorado Hills, Calif.; Alex Osborne of Sherman Oaks, Calif.; Steven Frazier of Houston; and Chase Todd of Sulphur, Okla.
