HORSLEY AND SHERLOCK EARN MEDALIST HONORS AT PGA NATIONAL
14 boys and girls earn entry into the PING Junior at Mirasol

WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. — In his first AJGA tournament, Neil Horsley of Cooper City, Fla., shot a 5-under 67 to earn medalist honors in the Boys Division in the Srixon Qualifier for the PING Junior at Mirasol. Stephanie Sherlock of Barrie, Ontario, also shot under par in her first AJGA tournament, as her 2-under 70 captured medalist honors in the Girls Division.

The American Junior Golf Association conducted the Srixon Qualifier for the PING Junior at Mirasol at the PGA National Resort & Spa's Haig Course. Twelve boys and two girls qualified for the 84-player event that begins on Wednesday, June 8, at The Country Club at Mirasol's Sunrise Course — the same venue used for the PGA TOUR's The Honda Classic.

With birdies on three of his first four holes, Horsley set a pace the remainder of the field could not match. Horsley sustained the momentum and finished the round with six birdies and only one bogey, giving him medalist honors by three shots over Christopher Muratore of New Smyrna Beach, Fla.

“I was making putts all day,” Horsely said. “I chipped in on No. 10 and made a 60-footer on No. 11. I just didn't want to choke at the end.”

Also qualifying in the Boys Division are Kazuki Imura of Wesley Chapel, Fla., Drew Florio of Celebration, Fla., Bennett Smith of Orlando, Fla., Jared Wolfe of Louisville, Ky., John Welden of Pilot Mtn., N.C., Danny Evelyn of Wellington, Fla., Andrew Colvin of Longwood, Fla., and Carlos Velez of Miami, Fla.

Two players also emerged from a nine-player playoff to capture the final two positions in the Boys Division. Billy Bowling of Palm Beach Gardens, Fla., and Paul Moxen, Longwood, Fla., won the two-hole playoff with a birdie and a par.

In addition to these participants gaining entry into this week's event, Eric Johannsen of Naples, Fla., Zach Lee of Ponte Vedra Beach, Fla., and Glenn Slezak of Norwood, N.J., earned a tournament exemption in lieu of playing in the PING Junior at Mirasol.

In the Girls Division, Sherlock also racked up the birdies en route to her win, as she birdied three of the four par 5s. Despite a double-bogey on her second hole, she remained calm knowing the short par 5s would play to her advantage.

“I wasn't hitting the greens in two, I was getting up-and-down from 50 yards,” Sherlock said. “I'm happy with the win because I'm not the best in one-day tournaments.”

Madison Pressel of Boca Raton, Fla., joins Sherlock as the second girl to qualify for the PING Junior at Mirasol. Pressel shot a 75 to earn the second qualifying spot. Jordyn Hage of Winter Park, Fla., earned a tournament exemption in lieu of playing in the PING Junior at Mirasol as well.
