DRESSER SCORCHES BENTWOOD WITH A 13-UNDER-PAR TOTAL
Lang's consistency pays off

PORTER, Texas -- Andrew Dresser of Carrollton, Texas, continued what he started in the first round to scorch Bentwood Country Club with a 7-under-par 65 Sunday for a 13-under-par two-day total at the AJGA TaylorMade-adidas Golf Junior at Bentwood. Brittany Lang of McKinney, Texas, carded another 2-under-par round of 70 for a 4-under-par total and the win in the Girls Division.

The annual 36-hole Easter Weekend event, conducted by the American Junior Golf Association, featured 156 players from 14 states and Japan with a majority of Lone Star State natives. The tournament, which began in 1985, was held at the par-72 layout of Bentwood Country Club for the first time. Past champions of the event include Bob May, Emilee Klein, Kellee Booth and Grace Park.

The 18-year-old Dresser carded nine birdies and one double bogey en route to his career-low round of 7-under-par 65 (30-35) and his first national victory. This round followed up his first round, which included five birdies, an eagle and a bogey for a 6-under-par 66 and a three shot lead, very nicely.

After making the turn at 2-under-par, he birdied seven of his next nine holes to come within one shot of the course record.

"I got off to a really great start," the Texas Tech-signee said. "My game has been really good this spring. I tried not to make mistakes and fortunately the putts started to fall. I got into a groove and everything just clicked.

"I really like this course. The greens are large and smooth and if stroke them (the ball) at the hole, they will fall."

The key to Dresser's success was definitely in his putting. After hitting 17 greens each day, he had very few birdie putts outside 10 feet.

"I hit my irons close," he continued. "I just played a normal round and made putts."

Eleven shots back and tied for second were Ryan Posey of Dallas and Brett Myers of Broken Arrow, Okla., at 2-under-par 142. Jay Choe of Yorba Linda, Calif., placed fourth at 1-under-par 143, while Bill Gutknecht of The Woodlands, Texas, and Evan O'Donnell of Palestine, Texas, rounded out the top five at even-par 144.

In the Girls Division, Lang notched her fourth career AJGA victory with five birdies on the day, including birdies on three of five holes on the front nine.

"I stuck a lot of iron shots close and made a lot of putts," the 16-year-old Polo Golf Junior All-American said. "I just played consistent. It was not anything really special."

Lang finished up her first round Sunday morning after inclement weather reaked havoc during Saturday's round forcing her and 71 other players to evacuate the course. Lang was forced to mark a 4-foot par-putt on her 10th hole which she said helped her focus more.

Ten shots off the pace were Lauren Espinosa of Irving, Texas, and Ashley Knoll of The Woodlands, Texas, at 150. Tied for fourth at 151 were Jane Lee of Rancho Palos Verde, Calif., and Konomi Yasuda of Tokyo, Japan.
