Shafer Holds One-Stroke Lead at Burgett H. Mooney, Jr. Rome Classic
Ramsey and Matheson share lead in Girls Division at Coosa Country Club

ROME, Ga. — Cody Shafer of Evans, Ga., fired an opening-round 4-under-par 67 to take a one-shot lead after the first round of the Burgett H. Mooney, Jr. Rome Classic. In the Girls Division, Ashlan Ramsey of Bradenton, Fla., and Kaitlin Matheson of Easley, S.C., co-lead after carding even-par 71s.

The Burgett H. Mooney, Jr. Rome Classic is a 54-hole stroke play tournament conducted by the American Junior Golf Association at Coosa Country Club in Rome, Ga. The event features 72 boys and 26 girls, ages 12-18, from nine states and Colombia, New Zealand, Paraguay and the Philippines. The Boys Division is playing the par-71 course at 6,823 yards and the Girls Division at 6,030 yards.

Shafer made four birdies and an eagle during his first round thanks to his driving accuracy and wedge play.

“I hit my driver really well today which is something that I have been working on,” Shafer said. “I also stuck some wedges close and the gap wedge I hit on No. 9 went in.”

John Russo of Alpharetta, Ga., stands alone in second at 3-under-par 68. Reeves Zaytoun of Raleigh, N.C., Taylor Wynn of Rome, Ga., Carter Page of Waynesville, N.C., and Ross Whatley of Decatur, Ga., are all tied for third at 2-under-par 69.

In the Girls Division, a birdie on No. 9 for Ramsey got her going.

“I made a birdie on No. 9 and then started over on the back nine.” Ramsey said. “I was a little bit tense on the front side and got a little more loose on the back nine. Having something positive happen with that birdie turned it around for me.”

Matheson birdied Nos. 9 and 10 on her way to a back-nine 2-under-par 33. The difference for Matheson was putting.

“Making my 10-foot birdie putts was the difference for me.” Matheson said. “I had a few good birdie chances on the back nine and capitalized on pretty much all of them.”

Silvia Garces of Cali, Colombia, Katie Kirk of Davidson, N.C., and Janie Jackson of Huntsville, Ala., are in a three-way tie for third at 1-over-par 72.

The AJGA provides valuable exposure for college golf scholarships, and has an annual junior membership (boys and girls ages 12-18) of approximately 5,000 junior golfers from 49 states and 30 countries. To ensure scholarship opportunities for all junior golfers who have the skill, the AJGA created the Achieving Competitive Excellence (ACE) Grant program to provide financial assistance to young players in need.

In 2007, after 12 years of support, Polo Ralph Lauren became the AJGA's second Premier Partner.
