Park pulls it out on last hole of ClubCorp Mission Hills Desert Junior
Lee takes home first AJGA victory at Mission Hills Country Club

RANCHO MIRAGE, Calif. — Kaitlin Park of Tustin Ranch, Calif., shot a 2-under-par 70 to withstand a furious comeback from Andrea Lee of Hermosa Beach, Calif., to win the ClubCorp Mission Hills Desert Junior. In the Boys Division, John Lee of Los Alamitos, Calif., maintained the lead he established through the first two rounds carding a 2-under-par 70 en route to his first American Junior Golf Association victory.

The ClubCorp Mission Hills Desert Junior was a 54-hole stroke play event conducted by the AJGA at Mission Hills Country Club in Rancho Mirage, Calif. The tournament field featured 54 boys and 24 girls from seven states and two countries. The Boys Division played the par-72 course at 7,101 yards and the Girls Division played it at 6,177 yards.

Andrea Lee birdied eight holes on Thursday to pull within one shot on No. 18, but she missed her putt for birdie. Park made par, giving her the victory.

“Andrea really kept me on my toes,” Park said. “I felt lots of pressure, but I stayed true to my putting and had confidence in each shot I put up.”

Park said she felt she had a chance to win on No. 6.

“My tee shot was behind the crooked tree and I hit the perfect punch shot that put me within two feet and I birdied it,” Park said. “I had to be aggressive because I didn't want to come up short. That hole really gave me a good feeling.”

This is Park's third victory. She won in April at the Under Armour®/Hunter Mahan Championship and also in August of 2010 at the Scissortail Junior Championship.

Andrea Lee finished in second with a 5-under-par 211 tournament total by shooting a tournament record final-round 7-under-par 65. Esther Lee of Los Alamitos, Calif., placed in third carding a 2-over-par 218 tournament total.

In his 18th AJGA event John Lee was able to come up with the victory he had been searching for. John Lee led all three rounds of the ClubCorp Mission Hills Desert Junior, winning the event by eight strokes.

“It was the first time I've led all three rounds,” John Lee said. “I went at all the pins, opportunities began to come and I did the best I could.”

John Lee will add his name to a list of past champions at Mission Hills that includes Phil Mickelson and Tiger Woods amongst others. “I'll remember this until I die. I never thought this could happen,” John Lee said. “Not many people have their names up there so I'm lucky to do that.”

Angelo Jose Gandionco of Cebu City, Philippines finished in second with an even-par tournament total of 216. Corey Shaun of Rancho Santa Fe, Calif., placed third with a 1-over-par 217 tournament total. Alex Angard of Encino, Calif., Robert Palacios of Chino Hills, Calif., and Connor Campbell of Seal Beach, Calif. tied for fourth with a 2-over par 218 tournament total.
