WASHBURN DRIVES HIS WAY TO MEDALIST HONORS IN QUALIFIER
Hunt, Tomimbang share medalist honors in Girls Division

HOT SPRINGS, VA.-Mark Washburn of Reston, Va., notched a 1-over-par 73 for top honors in the Boys Division of the AJGA ClubCorp Junior Players Championship Qualifier. In the Girls Division on Monday, Carly Hunt of Easton, Pa., and Mayule Tomimbang of Kissimmee, Fla., each carded an 83 to share medalist honors.

Conducted by the American Junior Golf Association, the ClubCorp Junior Players Championship Qualifier gave 58 players, 51 boys and 7 girls ages 13-18, the opportunity to play for 18 spots in the Boys Division and 3 spots in the Girls Division for Tuesday's first round.

Washburn used his drives to distance himself from the field, including a 357-yard drive over the 11th green.

"When you can go at the flags aggressively, it gives you confidence," said the 16-year-old. "I feel I have an advantage over the [tournament] field after playing today. I just want to make sure I stay away from big numbers during the tournament."

Rounding out the qualifiers for the Boys Division were Bethesda, Md., natives Matthew Grobstein and Jordan Litt, William Shriver IV of Silver Spring, Md., and Michael Beausejour of Cincinnati, Ohio at 2-over-par 74. At 76 was Christopher Gold of Haddonfield, N.J., and Bryce Mueller of Chapel Hill, N.C.

In at 77 were Tyler Zara of New Canaan, Conn., Bradley Blinn of Cincinnati, Ohio, Christopher Murphy of Vienna, Va., and Justin Kim of Clifton, Va. At 78 was Brian DePaul of Bridgeville, Pa., and Warren West of Chestertown, Md.

The final five qualifiers at 79 were Davey Fields of Fort Gay, W.Va., Bill McCrossan of Newtown Square, Pa., Kyle Hynden of Cincinnati, Ohio, Michael Mulieri of Silver Spring, Md., and David Christie of New Canaan, Conn.

Hunt qualified for her third AJGA event this year, finishing tied for ninth in the AJGA Steel City Junior Classic and 11th in the AJGA Boyne Highlands Junior.

"I definitely wanted to be here and I like the course," said the 16-year-old Hunt. "I just want to do the best I can and stay in the moment."

Tomimbang also played in the AJGA Steel City Junior Classic and finished third in the event.

"I am happy I made the field," said the 16-year-old Tomimbang. "I am looking for a good score for tomorrow's round."
The final qualifier in the Girls Division was Courtney Richardson of Acton, Mass., at 85.

The 10th AJGA ClubCorp Junior Players Championship features 123 players, 99 boys and 24 girls, from 21 states, including 30 players from the state of Virginia. The field also includes defending Boys Division champion Jared Jones of Kenova, W. Va., 2001 Girls Division champion Whitney Myers and AJGA Polo Golf Junior All-American Julieta Granada of Bradenton, Fla.
