Can takes two-shot lead into final round of Boys Division

PORT ORCHARD, Wash. - Paula Creamer of Pleasanton, Calif., and Tarik Can of Douglaston, N.Y., lead their respective divisions of the AJGA PING Junior at Trophy Lake through two rounds after carding 3-under-par 69s Wednesday.

The 54-hole stroke play tournament, one of five AJGA tournaments sponsored by PING, includes 84 players from 12 states, Canada and Malaysia, and runs through Thursday. Trophy Lake Golf & Casting has hosted the event since its inception in 1999.

Creamer (71-69-140) proved why she is one of the country's top juniors as she increased her lead to four shots with her second straight sub-par round. The 15-year-old recorded three birdies in her bogey-free second round and hit 15 greens - 17 if you count the fringe.

"I gave myself plenty of opportunities to make putts today," said Creamer, who is a first-team Polo Golf Junior All-American. "I'm not disappointed with my round but it could have been a lot lower."

Creamer, whose three second-round birdies all came on the front nine, is 18 holes away from her second straight title at Trophy Lake. Last year's runner-up, Jennifer Tangtiphaiboontana of Long Beach, Calif., is lurking in second place after consecutive even-par 72s. Rounding out the top three in the Girls Division is Katie Brophy (72-74-146) of Spokane, Wash.

In the Boys Division, Can's (71-69-140) sizzling back nine earned him a place atop the leaderboard heading into Thursday's final round. After a 38 on the front side, Can caught fire on the back nine with five birdies en route to a 5-under-par 31.

"I was hitting the ball well on the front nine but just got some bad breaks," Can said. "On the back nine you can score really well if you are hitting the ball well."

Can opened the back nine with birdies on 10 and 11, added two more birdies on 14 and 15, then punctuated his round with a birdie on the par-5 18th hole.

Mike Fiedler (73-69-142) of Faribault, Minn., jumped into second while first-round leader Erik Olson (67-76-143) of Renton, Wash., is still within striking distance, just three shots off the pace.

Chris Scott (72-73-145) of Valley Springs, Calif., is alone in fourth place, while Steven Dales (76-70-146) of Abbotsford, British Columbia, and Ben Leong (76-70-146) of Sabah, Malaysia, are tied for fifth at six shots back.

The PING Junior at Trophy Lake concludes Thursday, with tee times at 7-9 a.m. off the first and 10th tees. For more information, please contact the AJGA headquarters at (360) 874-8337.
