Camp Lejeune, N.C. • June 20 - 23
 

CAULEY FIRES 3-UNDER 69 TO LEAD AT JACKSONVILLE
Woods, Wagstaff tied atop the Girls Division at 1-over 73

JACKSONVILLE, N.C. — With the Marines' Morning Colors Ceremony opening the tournament, Bud Cauley of Jacksonville, Fla., tallied three birdies in a bogey-free round of 69 to lead the Boys Division after the first round at the Nike Golf Junior at Jacksonville. Cheyenne Woods of Phoenix and Stephanie Wagstaff of Asheville, N.C., fired rounds of 73 to tie for the lead in the Girls Division.

Conducted by the American Junior Golf Association, the Nike Golf Junior at Jacksonville is one of nine tournaments on the 2005 Nike Golf Junior All-Star Series schedule and highlights 71 of the nation's best junior golfers. The 54-hole event is being played on the Gold Course at Paradise Point—the oldest 18-hole golf course in the Marine Corps. The field features junior golfers from 20 states, including 15 from the state of North Carolina.

The Marines of Camp Lejeune performed the Morning Colors Ceremony precisely at 8:00 a.m. to onlooking parents and players. This ceremony is only performed at special occasions and included the playing of the national anthem and the raising of the American flag.

Playing in his final Nike Golf Junior event, Cauley said he wants to end his Nike career with a high finish. After hitting 16 of 18 greens on Tuesday, Cauley made few mistakes but still has goals for the remainder of the week.

“I hit a lot of greens today, but I want to hit my irons closer tomorrow,” Cauley said.

Drew Page of Waynesville, N.C., shot the only other sub-par round on the day, shooting a 2-under-par round of 70. Chung Lee of Suwanee, Ga., Alexander Sitompul of Bradenton, Fla., Dane Voss of Jonesborough, Tenn., Bryant Kang of Longwood, Fla., Blake Redmond of Sugar Land, Texas, and Benjamin Cohen of Pittsburgh each shot 1-over 73 tie for third place.

In the Girls Division, Cheyenne Woods of Phoenix, and Stephanie Wagstaff of Asheville, N.C., fired an opening round 73 to lead the field by one shot. Woods hit 12 of 14 fairways and opened the round with a birdie, followed by a string of 11 consecutive pars.

“I was very accurate today,” Woods said. “It helped out a lot. It gave me an opportunity to make birdies and I didn't have to struggle for par.”

Wagstaff also used a series of pars to carry her through her round. With two birdies and 13 pars, Wagstaff said she was more than pleased with her consistency.

“I'm not complaining. If I parred every hole, I'd be happy,” Wagstaff said. “I'm going to try to par every hole tomorrow, too.”

Rachel Morris of Carlsbad, Calif., trails Woods and Flagstaff by one shot entering the second round, after shooting a 1-over-par round of 74.
