FOREST TOPS THE FIELD AT RINGGOLD TELEPHONE COMPANY JUNIOR CLASSIC
Davis phones in with a 69 for Girls Division lead

RINGGOLD, Ga. - On a sweltering afternoon at the Ringgold Telephone Company Junior Classic, Greg Forest of Palm City, Fla., tops the Boys Division with a 5-under-par 65. In the Girls Division, Jennifer Davis of Seymour, Tenn., holds the early advantage at 1-under-par 69.

Conducted by the American Junior Golf Association, the Ringgold Telephone Company Junior Classic, features 101 players, 78 boys and 23 girls, ages 13-18 from 22 states and the Bahamas. The 54-hole stroke play event is taking place at Windstone Golf Club.
Forest, playing in his second career AJGA event and first this year, recorded eight birdies on the afternoon, including five birdies on the front nine.

"I stayed in the present on my shots. I really didn't think of the outcome of the shots," said the 15-year-old Forest about his round. "I made a lot of putts from five to 10 feet, which helped me early."

The remainder of the Boys Division top five includes Mu Hu of Bradenton, Fla., with a 4-under-par 66, Kaylor Timmins of Fort Payne, Ala., at 3-under-par 67, and at 2-under-par 68 is Ben Spickard of Roswell, Ga., and Travis Grote of Birmingham, Ala.

The highlight of the first round in the Boys Division was Cale Barr of Versailles, Ky., who carded a hole in one on the par-3 152-yard third hole. Barr used a 9-iron for his ace.

In just her second career AJGA event, Davis recorded her second career round under-70 and first in an AJGA event. Davis' round included six birdies and five bogeys, for her two-stroke advantage over Marci Turner of Tompkinsville, Ky.

"My irons were good today," the 17-year-old remarked. "I was hitting most of the greens and I just tried to keep my three putts to a minimum. Normally, I am consistent with my driver but that slipped away from me today."

Turner takes a first round 1-over-par 71 into the second day of the tournament and Jennifer Castle of Plantation, Fla., and Taryn Durham of Glasgow, Ky., each tallied a 2-over-par 72.

The second round of the Ringgold Telephone Company Junior Classic will begin at 7 a.m. Wednesday. For more information on this event, contact tournament headquarters at (706) 935-4355.
