Chudy leads Girls Division at 4-over-par 146

JUPITER, Fla. - In his first AJGA tournament, Nestor Delgado of Miami, Fla., is the leader of the Boys Division going into the final round of the Abacoa Junior Classic. Delgado shot 4-under-par 68 Wednesday to put him at 1-under-par 143 after two rounds of play. Tiffany Chudy of Miramar, Fla., shot a 1-over-par 73 Wednesday to retain the Girls Division lead at 4-over-par 146 after the second round.

Conducted by the American Junior Golf Association at Abacoa Golf Club, the event features a field of 84 competitors. The tournament consists of 54 holes of stroke play, with 57 players from the state of Florida participating.

The 17-year-old Delgado gained entry into the Abacoa Junior Classic through a qualifier on Sunday.

"Putting was the difference today," Delgado said. "I've been putting good all week and I only three putted twice today."

Delgado fell into a groove starting on the par-5, 555-yard sixth hole as he birdied holes six, seven and eight. Delgado finished the second round with eight birdies and four bogeys.

Noah Goldman of Longwood, Fla., sits one stroke behind Delgado at even-par 144, while Seath Lauer of Bradenton, Fla., is in third at 1-over-par 145.

"I feel confident going into the final round, especially coming out of the qualifier," Goldman said. "If I play my own game, I should be good."

Sungwon Jeon of Wesley Chapel, Fla., Lanny Benson of St. Louis, Mo., Andrew Freeman of Jensen Beach, Fla., Gregory Huxman of Pinecrest, Fla., Matthew Galloway of Valrico, Fla., and Hernan Borja of Kingwood, Texas are all tied for fourth place at 4-over-par 146.

In the Girls Division, Chudy, 17, is at 2-over-par 146 after the second round. She shot 1-over-par 37 on the front nine and even-par 36 on the back nine Wednesday. Chudy had three birdies on the back nine, including a bank shot off a palm tree on No. 17, to assist her second-round score.

"I hit the ball really well and my putting helped me today," Chudy said. "Everybody has their up and down days, today I'm on an up."

Christine Yum of Bradenton, Fla., and Natasha Lopez Moreira of Asuncion, Paraguay, are tied for second at 3-over-par 147.

The final round of the Abacoa Junior Classic continues at 7:00 a.m. Thursday off of the Nos. 1 and 10 tees at Abacoa Golf Club. For more information on the tournament, call (561) 622-0036.
