13 boys and 2 girls qualify for the Texace Shootout

SAN ANTONIO - Today at the Resort Course at La Cantera, 13 boys and two girls qualified for the Texace San Antonio Shootout taking place June 19-21 at the Club at Sonterra.

Conducted by the American Junior Golf Association, the Texace San Antonio Shootout allowed 102 juniors, 85 boys and 15 girls, the opportunity to play their way into the three-round Championship event held Wednesday through Friday.

With a low score of 1-under-par 71, Ben Hollerbach, of Tulsa, Okla. received medallist honors in the Boys Division. Hollerbach was the only junior to shoot under-par for the day. In the Girls Division, Lauren Cheves, of Bridgeport, Texas, shot 3-over-par 75 to capture low-score and one of two spots open for the tournament.

Hollerbach (33-38--71) boosted his score by shooting five birdies. He birdied Nos. 5, 8, 9, 10 and 15.

Cheves (35-40--75) birdied only No. 3, but came up with par on 13 out of the 17 remaining holes.

In his first AJGA qualifier event, Jon-Charles Carpenter, of San Antonio, tied for second-place finish to move him on to the championship. Carpenter shot even-par 72 for the day.

Carpenter (33-39--72) said he went to a lesson yesterday that really helped him out.

"They straightened out some of my shafts and helped me get to a more even playing level," Carpenter said. "I was definitely more consistent today that I have been lately."

He added that tomorrow he will get out on the course at Sonterra and get a feel for the terrain, but he has played there often so he will be comfortable out there.

Jake Krause, of Austin, Texas, also tied for second with a score of even-par 72.

In the end, the real battle was for the final four spots to qualify for the championship field. Tied at 4-over-par 76, 14 boys competed in a sudden-death, five-hole playoff in hopes of capturing the last four spots.

The second girl to qualify for the championship field was Lauren Johnson, of The Woodlands, Texas, and shot 40-36-76.

The Texace San Antonio Shootout will feature 122 players, both boys and girls, from 13 states, with the majority of the field from Texas.

The field will include both of the defending champions from last year, Tyler Leon of Dallas, and Brittany Lang of McKinney, Texas.

First-round tee times will begin at 7:00 a.m. on Wednesday, June 19 off the No. 1 tee at The Club at Sonterra.
