DOYLE WAITS OUT WEATHER FOR BOYS DIVISION TITLE
Goins shines in dark in last AJGA event for win

BATAVIA, OHIO- Dan Doyle of Rochester, Mich., shot a tournament round of even-par 213 to take the Boys Division title. Mandy Goins of Frankfort, Ky., is the Girls Division champion of the AJGA Kroger Junior Invitational at 73-75-72-220.

Thursday's final round of play was suspended for two hours in the morning due to fog and again for an hour and forty-six minutes in the afternoon for thunderstorms.

Conducted by the American Junior Golf Association, the AJGA Kroger Junior Invitational features 102 players, 81 boys and 21 girls from 20 states. Five are from the Cincinnati area, with 28 from the state of Ohio.

Doyle had a great start on the front with birdies on Nos. 2 and 5, but was set back after he doubled No. 6. He finished the back nine with birdies on Nos. 9 and 18. Doyle had only 29 putts, hit 13 greens and 12 fairways.

"The whole week I have been hitting my irons really well," said the 17-year-old. "My putts were dropping really easy because of my good iron shots."

In the 2003 season Doyle placed third at the AJGA Buick Junior Open Presented by Golfweek and 12th at the AJGA Boyne Highlands Junior.

Rounding out the Boys Division top five is Teddy Collins of Louisville, Ky., at 75-72-68-215, tied for third is Zack Sucher of Mobile, Ala., at 70-71-75-216 and Jeff Hall of Franklin, Tenn., at 69-74-73-216 and in a three-way tie for fifth is Andrew DiBitetto of Rochester, N.Y., at 72-74-72-218, James Sacheck of Zionsville, Ind., at 77-68-73-218, and Tyler Current of Louisville, Ky., at 73-71-74-218.

In the Girls Division, Goins started her round strong with a 25-foot putt for birdie on No. 1. She also had a birdie on No. 7, and one on the back nine on No. 16.

"The conditions were different [after the delay]," said the 18-year-old. "I lucked out and birdied No. 16 right off the back but ended the round with a bogey."

Goins hit 16 greens and ten fairways and had three bogies for the final round.

"My irons were working best for me today," said the Wake Forest signee. "This is a sweet win for me because it was my last AJGA event ever."

Rounding out the Girls Division top three are Carly Truitt of Marysville, Ohio, at 77-76-70-220 and tied for third are Sally Shonk of Noblesville, Ind., at 77-79-73-229, and Whitney Frykman of Acworth, Ga., at 76-78-75-229.
