CALLAHAN TAKES FIRST-ROUND LEAD ON HOME TURF
Lincicome, Suh share lead in Girls Division


TAMPA, Fla.- Ty Callahan of Tampa, Fla., jumped to the first-round advantage in the Boys Division of the AJGA First American Title Avila Junior Classic, with a 5-under-par 67. In the Girls Division, Brittany Lincicome of Seminole, Fla., and Jenny Suh of Fairfax, Va., each carded an even-par 72 for a share of the lead.

Conducted by the American Junior Golf Association, the AJGA First American Title Avila Junior Classic features 84 players, 63 boys and 21 girls from more than 17 states, New Zealand and Bermuda. The field also includes eight Polo Golf Junior All-Americans.

Callahan, playing on his home course of Avila Golf & Country Club, used his prior knowledge to lead the field.

"This course is pretty straight forward," said the 18-year-old. "I know the greens really well and found the breaks I could trust."

Callahan's total included one eagle, four birdies and one bogey.

Rounding out the top-five in the Boys Division is a three-way tie for second with Josh Moore of McLean, Va., Christopher Anderson of Lake Mary, Fla., and Ben Leong of Bradenton, Fla., all scoring a 2-under-par 70. In fifth place is Patton Kizzire of Tuscaloosa, Ala., at 1-under-par 71.

Lincicome, the 2001 champion and three-time Polo Golf Junior All-American, matched her goal for the week with her first-round score.

"I was looking to shoot even-par for the week," said the 17-year-old. "I want to get my scoring average back under par, hopefully this round got me back on track."

Lincicome's round began on the back nine, with a birdie on No. 11 followed by a bogey on No. 12. She finished her round with 15 consecutive pars.

Suh, 17, notched four birdies and four bogeys during her round. Suh came into the week wanting to make improvements to her game.
"I want to play well and also learn how to get more up and downs."

Summing up the top three of the Girls Division is two-time Polo Golf Junior All-American Julieta Granada of Bradenton, Fla., at 1-over-par 73.

Second-round tee times will begin at 7:30 a.m. off the Nos. 1 and 10 tees at the Avila Golf & Country Club on Wednesday. For more information on the AJGA First American Title Avila Junior Classic, contact tournament headquarters at (813) 968-5285.
