DuPont Country Club
Wilmington, Delaware
July 28-31, 2003

JANE PARK CARDS 11-UNDER PAR 202 FOR FIRST AJGA MAJOR TITLE IN DELAWARE
Creamer fires a 206 for second place at AJGA McDonald's Betsy Rawls Girls National Championship

WILMINGTON, Del. - California natives rocked the AJGA McDonald's Betsy Rawls Girls National Championship this week by claiming the top-three places. Jane Park of Beaumont, fired an 11-under-par 202 to take the honors while Paula Creamer of Pleasanton, shot 7-under-par 206 to claim second. Amie Cochran of Torrance, came in third with a 3-under-par 208.

Conducted by the American Junior Golf Association, the tournament featured 71 girls, ages 13-18, representing 20 states and Canada. The 54-hole event was held on the par-71, 6,036-yard DuPont Course at the DuPont Country Club. The invitation-only tournament also featured 20 Polo Golf Junior All-Americans.

With her 11-under-par performance, Park broke the 54-hole tournament record of 206, set by Christie Kerr in 1995.

"I hit some putts early in the round that got me off to a good start," Park said. "But Paula kept me on my toes, she is a fierce competitor."

Park started Thursday's round with a bogey on No. 1 and bogeyed again on No. 12, but went on to tally five birdies in the round en route to her win.

"With Paula, it's not over until the last hole," Park added.

Creamer also started off with a bogey on No. 1, but had birdies on Nos. 7 and 11 to finish the round 1-under-par 70.

"I really put the pressure on Jane (Park) today. She played tough though and played very well," Creamer said. "My golf game really didn't show today, I just wasn't there mentally. I kept telling myself to just stay tough."

A double-bogey on No. 8 set Cochran back early, but she was able to pull out two birdies on the back to finish even-par for the round.

"It feels good to finish in the top three of such a prestigious national championship," Cochran said. "I felt pretty confident today, but you can't win them all."

Sukjin Wuesthoff of Toms River, N.J., and In-Bee Park of Eustis, Fla., both carded 215 to finish in a tie for fourth. Angela Park of Torrance, Calif., fell one stroke behind to finish sixth.

Lauren Espinosa of Irving, Texas, and Ki-Shui Liao of Alameda, Calif., posted 217s to finish in a tie for seventh while Marci Turner of Tompkinsville, Ky., put up a 3-under-par 68 in the final round to finish ninth with a 218.

Jenny Suh of Fairfax, Va., Tiffany Tavee of Gilbert, Ariz., and Lauren Todd of Phoenix, Ariz., finished in a three-way tie for tenth place with 220s.
