SURI HOLDS ON TO TOP SPOT AT ST. AUGUSTINE
Wade posts a 71 to grab lead in the Girls Division

ST. AUGUSTINE, Fla.- Tommy Suri of Miami, Fla., carded a 1-under-par 71 Wednesday to hold on to the lead heading into the final round of the AJGA Shell World Golf Village Junior Championship. Whitney Wade of Glasgow, Ky., shot a 1-under-par 71 to break a four-way tie for first place in the Girls Division.

The Shell World Golf Village Junior Championship, conducted by the American Junior Golf Association, features 84 players with boys and girls representing 15 states. Fifty participants hail from the state of Florida.

Suri (34-37-71) played solid golf on the front nine, making seven pars and back-to-back birdies on Nos. 4 and 5. On the back nine, Suri found some trouble as the wind picked up, but he was able to finish with six pars and a birdie on the par-5, 517-yard 11th.

"I played solid par golf today," said Suri, who is at 4-under-par 140 for the tournament. "My back nine played tough with the wind blowing like it was. I feel that if I play well tomorrow, and that is good enough to win, great. And if not, then I still know that I tried my best."

Cornelius Carroll of St. Simons, Ga., scored a 71-71--142 and is in second place, two shots behind Suri. Gin Woong Kim of Wesley Chapel, Fla., and Reed Darsie of Chapel Hill, N.C., are tied for third at 143, while Steven Crolic of Jacksonville, Fla., rounds out the top-five at 144.

In the Girls Division, Wade, who started on No. 10, had some problems on her front nine; however, the 16-year-old recovered to card two birdies and five pars for a 37. On her back nine, Wade posted four consecutive pars before making her third birdie of the round on the par-4, 351-yard 5th after Wade stuck her second shot to within 15 feet and drained the birdie putt. Wade then pared out on her last four holes to finish with a 34.

"The back nine wasn't that bad," said Wade, who sits at 1-over-par 145 for the tournament. "I just made a few mistakes. I played the front nine very well by making solid pars. I need to work on some things before tomorrow, but I think I will be okay for the final round."

Nicole Hage of Coral Springs, Fla., is in second place with a 74-75-149, and Gretchen Zoeller of Floyds Knobs, Ind., is at 75-75-150, good for third.

Cameron Hooper, 15, of Jacksonville, Fla., scored a hole-in-one with a 3-iron on the par-3, 205-yard 13th.

Final-round tee times will begin at 7:30 a.m. on Thursday, July 11, off the Nos. 1 and 10 tees at Slammer & Squire at World Golf Village.
