FRANKS LEADS QUALIFIERS AT ALDERBROOK
Gig Harbor’s Stanley Earns Medalist Honors in Girls Division 

UNION, Wash. – Jeffrey Franks and Kristen Stanley paced a group of 10 players who qualified Friday for next week’s AJGA PING Junior at Trophy Lake. Franks, of Steamboat Springs, Colo., topped all boys’ qualifiers with a 1-over-par 73 while Stanley, of Gig Harbor, Wash., earned top honors in the Girls Division with a 78.

The 18-hole shotgun qualifier, conducted by the American Junior Golf Association at Alderbrook Golf and Yacht Club, gave players a chance to “play their way in” to next week’s event, which will be held at Trophy Lake Golf and Casting in Port Orchard, Wash.

Franks, who started on the 10th hole, made two early birdies to help card a 1-under-par 35 on the back nine. His 2-over-par 38 on Alderbrook’s tougher front side ensured him a spot in next week’s event.

“I hit a lot of my iron shots close to the flag today and putted pretty well,” said the 17-year-old Franks. “Today was the first time all year I had less than 30 putts in a round.”

After a disappointing finish at the AJGA’s Aspen event last week, Franks is glad to get an opportunity to redeem himself at Trophy Lake.

“I know I can play with these guys out here,” added Franks. “If I hit the ball well and putt the way I did today I’ll do fine.”

Taking second in the Boys Division was Kyle Stanley of Gig Harbor, Wash., at 75. Rui Takamatsu of Rowland Heights, Calif., took third with a 76. Rounding out the boys qualifiers at 78 were Nick Green of Las Vegas; Evan Hreha of University Place, Wash.; Steven Dales of Abbotsford, British Columbia; Do Ha of Kent, Wash.; and Connor Donnelly of Seattle.

In the Girls Division, Stanley’s consistent round of 39-39—78 led a pair of qualifiers who earned berths into next week’s competition. The 17-year-old closed her round in style with a birdie on the par-5 18th hole.

“I made a lot of one-putts but I didn’t really hit the ball well,” said the Bellarmine Prep senior-to-be. “I haven’t played in a while so I worked just to keep it in play because there is a lot of OB and the course is tight.”

The other girls’ qualifier was Leslie Brown of Prosser, Wash.

The PING Junior at Trophy Lake is a 54-hole stroke play competition featuring 84 boys and girls, ages 13-18. A practice round and junior-am fundraising tournament will be held June 17, with three rounds of competition following, June 18-20.
