BRANDON FIRES 66 TO LEAD BOYS QUALIFIERS
Lawrence qualifies for her first AJGA event

RINGGOLD, Ga. - After bogeying only one hole, Seth Brandon blasted a 4-under-par 66 Sunday to head up the Boys Division qualifiers for the Ringgold Telephone Company Junior Classic Qualifier, held Sunday at the par-70 Windstone Golf Club. Liebelei Lawrence from Bradenton, Fla., carded a 4-over-par 74 for the low score in the Girls Division.

Conducted by the American Junior Golf Association, the Ringgold Telephone Company Junior Classic Qualifier featured 75 players, 64 boys and 11 girls ages 13-18 from 14 states and the Bahamas.

"I putted really solid, and never missed a fairway," said 16-year-old Brandon. "Hopefully, I do the same thing during the tournament."

Brandon of Dalton, Ga., who also qualified for the TaylorMade-adidas Golf Junior at Chateau Elan, credits his five birdies for his medalist finish. Brandon led with a 1-stoke advantage over Thomas Bethel of Nassau, Bahamas.

Other qualifiers include Thomas Sholes of Gainesville, Ga., and Chase MacFarland of Savanahh, Ga., at 1-under-par 69, Michael Woods of Knoxville, Tenn., and Youngmin Cha, of Wesley Chapel, Fla., at 2-over-par 72, Peter Yoo of Norcross, Ga., and Colby Witwer of Duluth, Ga., at 73, and rounding out the qualifiers after a one-hole sudden death playoff are Tom Bittner, Jr., of Atlanta Ga., and Carlos Sainz of Elgin, Ill., with a 4-over-par 74.

In the Girls Division, Lawrence had back-to-back birdies on both the front nine and back nine, which lent a hand in her medalist finish.

Lawrence said she was a little overwhelmed, but "I played very confident."

"I knew if I played my game, I would do well," said the 16-year-old. "My goal for the tournament is to break par, and have fun with my first AJGA tournament."

Other qualifiers in the Girls Division include Ashley Parrott of Johnson City, Tenn., at 5-over-par 75, and tied for third at 76 is Taylor Deimantas, of Greenville, N.C., and Candace Schepperle, of Hoover, Ala.

The Ringgold Telephone Company Junior Classic features 99 players from 22 states, including 24 from the state of Georgia. First round of the 54-hole event will begin on Tuesday at Windstone Golf Club at 7 a.m.
