WARNQUIST, STEWART, POWELL TIE FOR MEDALIST HONORS AT CNL LIFESTYLE COMPANY JUNIOR CHAMPIONSHIP QUALIFIER
Park takes Girls Division honors at The Tradition Golf Club at Royal New Kent

PROVIDENCE FORGE, Va. – Seventy-one was the number of the day as Ben Warnquist of Rockville, Md., Cyrus Stewart of Raleigh, N.C., and Austin Powell of Jupiter, Fla., all shot 1-under-par 71 to tie for medalist honors in Sunday’s Qualifier to earn a spot in the CNL Lifestyle Company Junior Championship. Annie Park of Levittown, N.Y., also carded a 1-under-par 71 to medal in the Girls Division.

                Conducted by the American Junior Golf Association, the 18-hole stroke-play Qualifier featured 81 boys and 12 girls — ages 12-18 — each trying to "play their way in" to the CNL Lifestyle Company Junior Championship or build their status within the AJGA's Performance Based Entry system. Sunday's Qualifier gave 14 boys and four girls the opportunity to play in the CNL Lifestyle Company Junior Championship, which begins Monday, August 18.

                On a course that required players to navigate narrow fairways and strike the hole with accuracy, Stewart, Warnquist and Powell all managed to do just that.

                “This course was not what you think,” Powell said. “You have to think your way through it and be mentally tough.”

                Although Stewart did not play a practice round, he felt that his game was up to par.

                “It was very important to be in the fairways and I played pretty solid and only missed four fairways today,” Stewart said. “Without being able to play a practice round, I just wanted to hit it straight today.”

                Warnquist attributed his good play to strong iron play and ball striking.

                “This is my first AJGA open event and it feels good to medal,” Warnquist said. “Overall it was just a good day and hopefully this is a sign of things to come for me.”

                Also qualifying for the CNL Lifestyle Company Junior Championship are Steven Brown of Northville, Mich., Alex Hoffman of Myersville, Md., Royce Kim of Yorktown, Va., Matthew Sizemore of Richmond, Va., Hyung Mo Kim of Norwood, N.J., Brandon Squier of Advance, N.C., William Prince of New Canaan, Conn., Jay Woodward of Bridgeport W.Va., Tyler Wingo of Fairfax, Va., Victor Monte of Chantilly, Va., Will Boyle of Wellesley, Mass., and Brandon Jobe of Fayetteville, N.C.

                In the Girls Division, Park said her play was consistent and solid.

                “I hit my driver better than past days,” Park said. “My short game was a lot of two-putts, so I am just hoping to keep hitting it straight.”

                Casey Ann Kennedy of Venice, Fla., shot a 4-over-par 76 and will join Park in the CNL Lifestyle Company Junior Championship. Janice Kim of Alexandria, Va., and Banchalee Theinthong of Bangkok, Thailand also qualified in the Girls Division.
