LEE MEDALS FOR SECOND CONSECUTIVE WEEK, WILL PLAY AT CARLTON OAKS
Jackson, Chang, Windon shoot even-par to medal in Emerson Junior Golf Classic Qualifier

SANTEE, Calif. â€” Charles Windon of Rancho Palos Verdes, Calif., Dylan Jackson of La Jolla, Calif., and Yi Keun Chang of Walnut, Calif., all carded even-par 72s to medal in the Emerson Junior Golf Classic Qualifier. Hana Lee of Hacienda Heights, Calif., took the Girls Division honors, besting her opponents by a margin of four stokes.

Conducted by the American Junior Golf Association, the Qualifier for the Emerson Junior Golf Classic was an 18-hole stroke-play event held at Carlton Oaks Country Club. The tournament field consisted of 80 boys and 20 girls, ages 12-18, from three states and Taiwan. Ninety-five hailed from the home state of California. The Boys Division played the par-72 layout at 7,003 yards, while the Girls Division played at 6,152 yards.

For the Boys Division, Windon credited a solid round to good ball-striking, confident putts, and playing the wind well.

“I played with no fear today,” said Windon. “My putter was hot and I kept everything in the fairway. It also helped to birdie the first three holes that I played, Nos. 14-16.”

Jackson, who opted to take a tournament exemption, and Chang both came into the round wanting to par as many holes as possible. The highlight in Jackson's round came when he made a 70-foot putt for birdie on the par-3 12th. Chang was happy finishing with two birdies on the back nine to end his round.

The eight qualifiers that filled the Boys Division included Alex Bungert of Orange, Calif., Jae Kang of Irvine, Calif., Jake Katz of Thousand Oaks, Calif., Joseph Stewart of Palm Desert, Calif., and Brian Campbell of Irvine. Daniel Slovis of Woodland Hills, Calif., Daniel Grier or Yorba Linda, Calif., and Justin Kim of Encino, Calif., all qualified via sudden-death playoff for the three remaining spots in the tournament.

Also qualifying but opting to take a Tournament Exemption in lieu of playing in this week's event were Joseph Choi of Bakersfield, Calif., and Phil Soo Kim of Tracy, Calif.

For the Girls Division, Lee was proud of her recent performance and medaling in her second qualifier in just as many weeks. She tallied four birdies on the day.

“I played here at Junior Worlds a while back and it's not an easy course,” said Lee. “I knew that I couldn't overlook it so I really thought about each shot.”

Filling the qualifier field for the Girls Division were Whitney French of Laguna Niguel, Calif., Bethany Glassford of Henderson, Nev., Hanah Kim of Chula Vista, Calif., Rachel Kim of Diamond Bar, Calif., and Sarah Baek of Encinitas, Calif.

Also qualifying but opting to take one tournament exemption in lieu of playing in this week's event were Daniela Okino of Elk Grove, Calif., and Nabeelah Mohideen of San Diego.
