Eleven players qualify for tournament field

MOBILE, Ala. - Eleven players gained entry into the AJGA Robert Trent Jones Golf Trail Junior Classic on Thursday through a qualifying round. Earning medalist honors were Meen Huh of La Palma, Calif., and J.T. Hoffman of Alpharetta, Ga.

Conducted by the American Junior Golf Association, the Robert Trent Jones Golf Trail Junior Classic is scheduled for Aug. 30-Sept. 1 and will consist of a 171-player field. Players hail from eight states. The boys will compete on the Falls Course and the girls will compete on the Crossings Course.

Using a set of rental clubs after locking his set in the car, the 17-year-old Hoffman shot 1-over-par 73 to share honors with Huh.

"The rentals took a while to get used to," Hoffman said. "I was 4-over through my first five but the clubs played fine and I'm looking forward to playing in the tournament."

Hoffman's four bogeys came in his first nine holes of play. After adjusting to the new clubs, he made three birdies and used steady golf on his back nine to score 1-over-par 73.

"The irons gave me trouble," Hoffman said. "My putter helped me out a lot today and that's what I relied on."

Sharing medalist honors with Hoffman, the 18-year-old Huh played consistent golf throughout his round. Huh was 1-over-par 37 on his front nine and even-par 36 on his back nine.

"My putting gave me trouble all day," Huh said. "I had a solid drive and good irons, but my chipping was my strength. I got up and down all day."

Bill Allcorn of Abilene, Texas, and Wesley Parker of Enterprise, Ala., finished tied for third place at 2-over-par 74.

Allcorn, 18, was having trouble off the tee early and used strong iron play to qualify for the tournament.

"I put my driver up after nine holes and just hit my 2-iron off the tee," Allcorn said. "I covered the flag all day with my irons. Any iron I hit, I hit it right at the flag."

The 16-year-old Parker was 1-under-par 35 on the front nine and 3-over-par 39 on the back nine to make his 2-over-par 74.

"My putting gave me the most trouble," Parker said. "I left a lot of putts short. If I can figure out these greens, I think I'll be in good shape for the tournament."

Other players entering the tournament field through the qualifier were Eric Harris of Eden Prairie, Minn., Andrew Carroll of Little Rock, Ark., Hunter Buwick of Norman, Okla., Joseph Zieman of Mobile, Ala., Joshua Chong of Alpharetta, Ga., Hunter Creekmore of Ft. Smith, Ark., and Joshua An of Bradenton, Fla.

The tournament gets underway Saturday with tee times starting at 7:00-11:57 a.m. for the Boys Division and 7:00-8:39 a.m. for the Girls Division. For more information, contact tournament headquarters at (251) 645-0075 or log on to ajga.org.
