Wuesthoff trails with 66 at AJGA McDonald's Betsy Rawls Girls National Championship

WILMINGTON, Del. - Jane Park of Beaumont, Calif., made seven birdies to take a one-stroke lead after the first round of the AJGA McDonald's Betsy Rawls Girls National Championship. Sukjin Wuesthoff of Toms River, N.J., carded six birdies but bogeyed on No. 18 to finish the day 5-under-par 66.

Conducted by the American Junior Golf Association, the tournament features 71 girls, ages 13-18, representing 20 states and Canada. The 54-hole tournament is being held at the par-71, 6,036-yard DuPont Course at DuPont Country Club.

"Fairways and greens, that was my game plan," Park said. "The course is short compared to some others and I was able to use my irons, which I was hitting well today."

Park birdied on Nos. 2,3,9,11,13,15 and 17, but carded a bogey on No. 16.

"I just kept focus and didn't think about anything else. I didn't even realize what my score was until I sat down in the scoring tent," Park said.

Greens were the key for Wuesthoff, who attributes her success to her putter.

"The greens were perfect for me this afternoon, except on No. 18. Almost every shot was working for me today," said Wuesthoff.

Wuesthoff shot birdies on Nos. 1,3,7,11,12 and 16 to post her career-low round.

"I'm just out here to play my best. Not trying to win, just play my game," Wuesthoff said.

Only one stroke behind Wuesthoff are Paula Creamer of Pleasanton, Calif., and Tiffany Tavee of Gilbert, Ariz., who both carded 67s.
Creamer shot a bogey-free 67 with birdies on Nos. 9,11,13 and 16.

"I played pretty consistent. I started out with eight pars and was really going for the greens," Creamer said.

After shooting her first bogey of the round on No. 12, Tavee fired three birdies on the back nine, combined with two on the front to finish Tuesday's round with a 67.

"I played target golf today," Tavee said. "I didn't go for everything and just played it safe on the holes that I should."

Amie Cochran of Torrance, Calif., and Florida natives Christie Reed of Coral Springs, Jacqui Concolino of Orlando, and In-Bee Park of Eustis, all shot even-par 71s to round out the top-eight.

Second-round tee times will begin at 7 a.m. on Wednesday off the No. 1 tee on the DuPont Course at the DuPont Country Club.
