Lincicome scorches field to take commanding lead in Girls Division

TAMPA, Fla.- Chris Anderson of Lake Mary Fla., and Ty Callahan of Tampa, Fla., are tied for the lead going into the final round at 4-under par 140. In the Girls Division, Brittany Lincicome of Seminole Fla., took sole possession of the lead, matching her career-low round with a 65 to lead the tournament at 7-under-par.

Conducted by the American Junior Golf Association, the AJGA First American Title Avila Junior Classic features 83 players, 62 boys and 21 girls from more than 18 states, New Zealand and Bermuda.

Anderson (70-70-140), rode a solid short game to a second consecutive 2-under-par score. Taking only 26 putts, Anderson made four birdies on Nos. 1, 4, 5, and 8. On No. 1 he failed to reach the green in regulation but chipped in for birdie.

"The first nine I hit the ball awful," he said. "But I got two up and downs which really helped me."

Callahan hit 15 greens, had one birdie and lipped out 6-7 other chances. His lone birdie came on No. 7 when he hit a 1-iron off the tee followed by a 9-iron 18 feet from the hole.

"I hit the ball solid," the 18-year-old said. "Tomorrow I need to focus, commit to each shot and hit it. I need to play my own game."

Rounding out the Boys Division leaders are Ben Leong of Bradenton, Fla. (70-72-142), Patton Kizzire of Tuscaloosa, Ala. (71-71-142), Nicholas Smith of Ocala, Fla. (74-69-143) and George Gandranata of Bradenton, Fla. (72-71-143).

In the Girls Division, Lincicome, 2000 champion and three-time Polo Junior Golf All-American, shot her lowest round in three years.

"I feel good," the 17-year-old said. "I am trying to get my scoring average down."

Lincicome had seven birdies including five on the front and two on the back. One of her few misses of the day came on No. 12 where her approach was just short of the water hazard. She followed with a flop shot 1-foot from the hole to tap in for par and a great up and down.

Lincicome has two career titles including the AJGA Tampa Bay Classic in 2000 and more recently the 2003 AJGA TaylorMade-adidas Golf Junior at Chateau Elan.

The top three in the Girls Division include Julieta Granada of Bradenton, Fla., at 73-70-143 and Jenny Suh of Fairfax, Va., at 72-76-148.

Final-round tee times will begin at 7:30 a.m. off the Nos. 1 and 10 tees at the Avila Golf and Country Club on Thursday. For more information, contact tournament headquarters at (813) 968-5285.
