Choi cards 146 to take one stroke lead in Girls Division at New Seabury

MASHPEE, Mass. - Andrew DiBitetto of Rochester, N.Y., entered the round in a seven-way tie for fifth place and finished the day with a tournament total of 1-under-par 139 and the lead in the Boys Division. Marina Choi of Los Angeles, Calif., also entered the day in fifth place only to shoot 2-over-par 72 for the round and take a one stroke lead in the Girls Division.

Conducted by the American Junior Golf Association, the 54-hole event features 84 boys and girls, ages 13-18, from 14 states, as well as 33 Massachusetts natives. The 15th annual event is being held at the Dunes Course at the Country Club of New Seabury.

In a typical windy Cape Cod day that saw several high scores, DiBitetto was the only player in the field who was able to complete the round better than par.

"I relied on my ball striking today and I hit the ball really well," DiBitetto said. "On this course, with it not being long, you have to think a lot and be smart about your shots."

DiBitetto was able to make four birdies during the round on Nos. 2, 9, 14 and 18. His only bogey of the day was a triple on No. 7.
"My short irons were right on today. I missed a few putts but the opportunities were there," DiBitetto said. "I just need to come out tomorrow and keep playing the game I've been playing."

After firing a 69 yesterday, Joey St. Laurent of Nashua, N.H., came in with a 1-over-par 71 today to go into the final round at even-par 140.
"I came out with the same plan as yesterday, didn't do anything different," St. Laurent said. "I kept the ball in front of me but I had to scramble around the greens to get up and down a couple of times."

Leading the way in the Girls Division is Choi with a tournament total of 146.

"I played pretty good on the front nine and was able to recover from my bogeys with some birdies," Choi said. She had birdies on Nos. 6 and 9.

"I had some good iron shots today which led to some short putts," Choi said. "Putting will be the key tomorrow for me to be able to get under par."

Songyi Yi of San Diego, Calif., who finished the first round in a three-way tie for first, carded a 75 in the second round to sit at 72-75-147, good enough for second place.

"I did well with my driving today and had some good iron shots," Yi said. "The greens here are really hard so I'm going to need to work on my putting for tomorrow."

Completing the top-six in the Boys Division are Matthew Scytkowski of South Madley, Mass., and Drew Harker of Barrington, R.I., with 141s. Jamie Wallace of Moorestown, N.J., and David May of Auburn, N.Y., both finished the round with 142s.

Rounding out the top-five in the Girls Division are Chelsea Curtis of New Seabury, Mass., with a 149 followed by Kimberly Donovan of Hopkinton, Mass., and Megan Mangone of Windham, N.H., with 150s.

Final-round tee times will begin at 7 a.m. on Thursday off the Nos. 1 and 10 tees at the Country Club of New Seabury, Dunes Course.
