QUALIFIERS AT ALDERBROOK Gig Harbors Stanley Earns Medalist Honors in Girls
Jeffrey Franks and Kristen Stanley paced a group of 10 players
who qualified Friday for next weeks 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 weeks
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 Alderbrooks tougher front side ensured him a spot
in next weeks 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 AJGAs 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 Ill 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, Stanleys consistent round of
39-3978 led a pair of qualifiers who earned berths into
next weeks 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 didnt really hit
the ball well, said the Bellarmine Prep senior-to-be.
I havent played in a while so I worked just to
keep it in play because there is a lot of OB and the course
The other girls qualifier was Leslie Brown of Prosser,
The PING Junior at Trophy Lake is a 54-hole stroke play competition
