30 positions filled for 54-hole event

CORNELIUS, N.C. - Sunday's qualifier for the AJGA PING Junior at The Peninsula Club was stopped due to heavy thunderstorms moving through the Cornelius area. The field for Tuesday's first round was filled by a lottery.

Conducted by the American Junior Golf Association, the PING Junior at the Peninsula Club Qualifier featured 105 players, 95 boys and 10 girls, ages 13-18 from 16 states, including 59 from North Carolina.

The 30 positions up for grabs, 29 boys and one girl, were filled by a random lottery. The lottery was conducted after The Peninsula Club course was deemed unplayable by AJGA officials. AJGA Tournament Director David Fox took the safety of the players and spectators into consideration when making the decision.

"We did not want to put anyone in danger," said Fox. "It was an unfortunate way to end a qualifier, but the course conditions were unfit for competitive play."

The AJGA PING Junior at the Peninsula Club is a 54-hole stroke play event featuring 99 players from 20 states and France. The Girls Division is led by defending champion Whitney Myers from East Berlin, Pa., and reigning Polo Golf Girls Junior Player of the Year, In-Bee Park from Eustis, Fla.
