Wang brings it all together on back-nine leads Girls Division at 1-under-par

HOT SPRINGS, VA.- Chad Fultz of Staunton, Va., and Tom Miles of Dublin, Ohio, shot 6-under-par 66 to take the early advantage in the Boys Division of the AJGA ClubCorp Junior Players Championship. In the Girls Division, Catherina Wang of Sarasota, Fla., had a solid 1-under-par 71 to lead.

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.

Fultz started off with a bogey on No. 1, but felt his round came alive after making birdie on No. 3 to get to even. Fultz carded eight birdies for the day including six alone on the back nine and had only 24 putts and hit 13 greens.

"I have not been playing well this summer," the 17-year-old said. "My game finally came alive today. Hopefully I keep my mind focused and keep playing solid the remainder of the tournament."

Miles had seven birdies, lipped out for eagle on No. 7 and made his lone bogey of the day on No. 12 after three-putting. Miles also hit all 14 fairways Tuesday.

"I don't want to put pressure on myself going into the next two rounds," said 16-year-old Miles. "I want to shoot even par and anything else is a bonus."

Fultz and Miles have a 2-stroke advantage over Clint Smith of Asheboro, N.C., at 68.

Rounding out the Boys Division top five are William Shriver, IV, of Silver Spring, Md. and Jake Chominsky, of Greensboro, N.C., at 69.

In the Girls Division, Wang had four birdies all on the back nine including back-to-back birdies on Nos. 10 and 11. Wang had a 12 foot putt for eagle on No. 15 but left it short for an easy birdie. Her other birdie came on No.13.

"I had a great round and played well," said the 15-year-old. "I was hitting the ball and putting good. Everything came together today.
Tomorrow I would like to play steady, play conservative, and hopefully finish the tournament in the top three."

Rounding out the Girls Division top three are Meredith McMahan of San Antonio, Texas and Julieta Granada of Bradenton, Fla., at 73.

The second round of the tournament will begin Wednesday, July 30 at 7:30 a.m., off the No. 1 tee at The Homestead Resort, Lower Cascades Course. For more information on the AJGA ClubCorp Junior Players Championship, please contact tournament headquarters at (540) 839-7708.
