2000 Polo Golf Junior Player of the Year ties AJGA 18-hole record with an 8-under-par 63

DALLAS-Matt Rosenfeld of Plano, Texas, scorched Lakewood Country Club for an 8-under-par 63 to set the competitive course record and break away from the pack Thursday at the AJGA Lucent Technologies Boys Junior Championship. Rosenfeld carded seven birdies and an eagle to take a six-stroke lead heading into the final round.

The 72-hole event, conducted by the American Junior Golf Association, is being held at the par-71 Lakewood Country Club. The field features 132 players representing 28 states, Canada, Germany and Japan. Past champions include Tiger Woods, David Duval, Jim Furyk and Ty Tryon.

Rosenfeld, who started the day one stroke behind the leaders, got things going early with a chip-in birdie from a tough lie in the rough on No. 1 and followed it up with another birdie on the 432-yard, par-4 2nd hole to move into the lead. Two more birdies on the front nine and a bogey on No. 9 put Rosenfeld at 3-under-par at the turn.

"Being able to make bogey on No. 9 after hitting out of bounds was crucial because things could have been much worse," Rosenfeld said. "But the turning point of my round was getting up-and-down from the sand on No. 12 to make par and stay at 3-under. I knew it was going to be a good round after that."

After two more birdies on Nos. 14 and 16, Rosenfeld stuck a 5-iron from 194-yards out within 2-feet of the hole for a tap-in eagle on No. 17 and calmly rolled in an uphill 12-footer on No. 18 to tie the AJGA boys 18-hole scoring record and card the low round in the 15-year history of the tournament.

"I'll remember this round for a long time," Rosenfeld said. "This is the best round I've ever shot and it's a great accomplishment for me to do it at this tournament."

Rosenfeld is in position for his first AJGA victory of the year and the fifth of his career. The reigning Polo Golf Junior Player of the Year has four players sitting six strokes back heading into the final round and is in position to break the all-time AJGA 72-hole scoring record.

"I've come close to winning this tournament the past two years," said Rosenfeld, who tied for fourth a year ago. "I still have to go out and play well tomorrow, but I've always felt comfortable at this tournament. I'm going out tomorrow with the same mindset I've had all week, which is to shoot a good solid round."

The competitive course record was 66 heading into Thursday before four players broke the mark, including Benjamin Spitz of Norwell, Mass., Kevin Larsen of Santa Barbara, Calif., and Jonathan Moore of Portland, Ore., who each fired 6-under-par 65s. Spitz and Larsen sit in a four-way tie for second at 206 with Anthony Kim of La Quinta, Calif., and Chris Wheeler of Allen, Texas. Moore is tied for 10th.

Final-round tee times run from 8 a.m. to 11:09 a.m. Friday. For more information regarding the AJGA Lucent Technologies Boys Junior Championship, please contact tournament headquarters at (214) 821-1491.
