BISHOP EXTENDS LEAD AT MARSHALLIA RANCH
Kuczka takes control of Girls Division

VANDENBERG AFB, Calif. - Louie Bishop of Murrieta, Calif., maintained his lead in the Boys Division with an even-par second round at the AJGA Marshallia Ranch Junior Classic. In the Girls Division, Alissa Kuczka of Phoenix shot a 3-over-par 75 to take a one-stroke lead.

Conducted by the American Junior Golf Association, the 54-hole event is being held on the par-72 Marshallia Ranch Golf Course in Vandenberg AFB, Calif.

Bishop saw inconsistent play through his first nine holes, making birdies on Nos. 10 and 11 and following with a double-bogey and a bogey on Nos. 12 and 13.

"After birdies on my first two holes, I was feeling good about the round," he said. "I just laughed off the double-bogey on No. 12 and said it was a bad hole, but it was frustrating."

Bishop, however, made a par on No. 14 and then a birdie on the 586-yard, par-5 15th hole and never looked back. He managed two more birdies and two bogeys through the round to finish at even-par 72 for a two-day total of 141.

The 17-year-old, who is playing his first AJGA event of the year, is looking to step up his performance in the final round.

"I plan on being aggressive on the course tomorrow," he said. "It's all about good tee shots. I hope to come out tomorrow and eliminate mistakes."

Brandon Beck of Oak Park, Calif., is three strokes behind Bishop, carding a 2-over-par 74 for a two-day total of 144. Beck opened the round in solid fashion with birdies on Nos. 10 and 15, but four bogeys on the day put him back in second place.

Hunter Kenihan of Irvine, Calif., is in third place is with scores of 74-71-145, and Jeff Vetterick of Rancho Santa Fe, Calif., is in fourth with a 75-71-146.

Garrett Sapp of Cerritos, Calif., and Billy Moon of Irvine, Calif., are tied for fifth at 147.
In the Girls Division, Kuczka relied on a solid short game to power her way to the Girls lead, tallying a two-day total of 80-75-155.

"My chipping saved me today," she said. "I played the same as yesterday, but my short game was much better. I only had one or two three-putts as opposed to three or four yesterday."

Playing in her final AJGA event, Kuczka had trouble on the front nine, posting consecutive bogeys on holes No. 4-6. However, she managed birdies on holes No. 7 and 9, and carded only one more bogey on No. 16, to finish 3-over-par on the day.

"I'm just going to try to hit fairways and hit closer to the hole tomorrow," she said. "It would be nice to win my last event."

Grace Woo of Burbank, Calif., trails Kuczka by one stroke, with rounds of 80-76-156. Allison Goodman of San Diego, Calif., is in third place with a two-day total of 159.
Final Round action begins Thursday, July 25, at 6:30 a.m. off the No. 1 and 10 tees of the Marshallia Ranch Golf Course.
