TODD LEADS BY A STROKE WITH ONE ROUND TO PLAY
Eleven players within five shots of the lead

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. - Lauren Todd of Phoenix, carded her second-consecutive round under par at the AJGA Rolex Girls Junior Championship to lead the field by one stroke heading into the final round. Eleven players are within five shots of the lead at the prestigious event held at the par-72 LPGA International's Champions Course.

The 54-hole tournament, conducted by the American Junior Golf Association features 82 girls representing 24 states, Japan and the Philippines. Twenty-six participants from Florida are included in the field.

Todd (70-71--141) bogeyed No. 1, but quickly rebounded with the help of a hot putter to notch four birdies during the round.

"It was an adventure out there," Todd said. "My putting was very solid. I did not miss anything within five feet and made a couple of 20-foot putts to help me."

Todd, 17, is excited about being at the top of the leaderboard, but knows there is a lot of golf to be played.

"It is exciting anytime you are in position to win," said Todd, who finished third last month at the AJGA Southwestern Junior Classic. "I have been playing well and just have to believe I can do it. I have to do the same thing I did today and focus on hitting fairways."

Sitting one stroke off the lead is In-Bee Park, of Eustis Fla., and Brittany Lincicome of Seminole, Fla.

The 17-year-old Lincicome (71-71--142) came out of the gate strong with birdies on Nos. 1 and 2 before notching three more in her round. She credited much of her success to her driver, but said she needs to work on some mechanics for the final round.

"I was too loose today," Lincicome said. "I need to tighten up on my game for tomorrow. On No. 10, I was 40 yards away and missed the green."

Park (70-72--142), 13, put together a consistent round including two birdies to finish at even par.

"I missed a lot of birdie putts, but my irons were working well for me today," Park said. "I am excited for tomorrow and just want to do my best."

Defending champion, Brittany Lang, 16, of McKinney Texas, sits two shots off the lead with a 73-70--143.

The final round of play commences tomorrow with tee times from 7:30-9:27 a.m. off the Nos. 1 and 10 tees.
