PITTSBURGH NATIVE HORVAT LEADS BOYS DIVISION QUALIFIERS WITH EVEN PAR 72
Tomimbang notches 77 to qualify in Girls Division

GREENSBURG, Pa.-After entering four AJGA qualifiers, Joe Horvat of Pittsburgh, Pa., will make his first appearance in an AJGA tournament just outside of his hometown at the AJGA Steel City Junior Classic. Horvat shot an even par 72 to win the qualifier and be one of the 12 boys to advance to the tournament.

Mayule Tomimbang of Kissimmee, Fla., led the Girls Division with a 77 to earn her way in.

The tournament field will feature 84 boys and girls, ages 13-18, representing 17 states. This is the first year that a tournament has been held at Totteridge Golf Club.

"I was just hitting fairways and greens," said Horvat about his low score. "I only hit my driver twice today so I was never in the fescue and was able to keep the ball in the fairway most of the time."

On greens that gave most of the players problems, Horvat says that it is simply his style. "I like this course because the greens are so fast and it fits my style of play."

Horvat will be one of 31 Pennsylvania natives making the trip to Totteridge Golf Club for the AJGA Steel City Junior Classic.

Tomimbang had two birdies and 10 pars, which fueled her round of 77 to take the Girls Division title.

"It feels pretty good, especially with the course being as tough as it is," said Tomimbang.

"I was hitting greens in regulation and my timing was really on today. Now I'm just looking forward to going to the tournament and winning."

Also qualifying in the Boys Division were Pennsylvania natives Cody Kersey of Lebanon, and Bryan Bustamente of Greensburg, with 73s. Michael VanSickle of Wexford, Pa., and Scott Aydelotte of Apache Juntion, Ariz., each shot a 75 while Michael O'Keefe of Medford, N.J. shot a 76.

John Murphy of Wilton, Conn., Billy Rankin of Cedar, Mich., and John Redecker of Pepper Pike, Ohio, all qualified with 77s. Colin Clemente of Hubbard, Ohio, shot a 78 and Sean Brannen of Hollidaysburg, Pa., shot a 79 to round out the Boys Division Qualifiers.

Brannen was able to pick up the final qualifier position after using three straight pars to win a four-way sudden-death playoff. Carly Hunt of Berwyn, Pa., shot an 83 to pick up the second qualifier position in the Girls Division.

First-round tee times will begin at 7 a.m. on Tuesday off the Nos. 1 and 10 tees at the Totteridge Golf Club.
