Cold weather, wind help keep 81 of 83 from breaking par

LIBERTY LAKE, Wash. - Early morning 40 degree weather tested the 83 players who came to MeadowWood Golf Course Saturday for the first round of the AJGA Preseason Junior at Spokane. But Denny Bae of Los Angeles, and Christopher Ross of Dundas, Ontario, both carded one-under-par 71s to capture first round honors, despite the temperature.

The AJGA Preseason at Spokane, conducted by the American Junior Golf Association, is a 36-hole stroke-play tournament that consists of a boys-only field (ages 13-18) representing 20 states and Canada. Seventeen juniors from the Evergreen State are included in the field.

The 15-year-old Ross began his impressive round with a birdie and continued to steady his play by making 17 straight pars.

"I usually have a bad start at the beginning of each of my rounds, but today it was a different story," Ross said. "Because of the tough weather, it required me to alter my game by using a longer club for each shot."

Like Ross, Bae, who garnered three birdies, found himself playing more aggressive due to the conditions.

"My first nine holes played really tough, but my last nine was much better because the wind did not seem as strong," Bae said.

For tomorrow's final round, Ross and Bae both plan to keep their shots in the fairways and strike every putt firmly.

Trailing by only one stroke behind the co-leaders are Jimmy Winkley of Flower Mound, Texas; Joe Panzeri, Boise, Idaho; and Tim Wheatley of Tawas City, Mich.

The AJGA Preseason/Postseason Junior Series, a boys-only series, is expanding to eight tournaments in 2002 from the six featured last year. The series is designed to provide playing opportunities to juniors who have not yet played in an AJGA Tournament. Players who finish in the top 15, including ties, receive one, two or three automatic entries into future AJGA tournaments, depending on their finish.

The final round of AJGA Preseason Junior at Spokane begins on Sunday, April 28, with the tee times set for 7:30 to 9:27 a.m. off the No. 1 and 10 tees at MeadowWood Golf Course.
