GIELOW, BROYLES, KIHARA TIED FOR LEAD IN MIDLAND
Park fires 3-under-par 69 to grab big lead in Girls Division

MIDLAND, Texas - Brendan Gielow of Muskegon, Mich., Clayton Broyles of West Monroe, La., and Mitch Kihara of Vancouver, British Columbia each fired 3-under-par 69s to tie for first after the opening round of the Callaway Golf Junior All-Star Classic at Midland. In the Girls Division, Angela Park of Torrance, Calif., also fired a 3-under-par 69 at the par-72 Midland Country Club to grab a seven-shot lead heading into the final round.

The 36-hole tournament, conducted by the American Junior Golf Association, features 99 players representing 21 states and Canada, and includes 55 Texas natives. Midland is the first of seven stops for the Callaway Golf Junior All-Star Series, designed specifically for boys and girls ages 13-15.

Gielow used five birdies to help him post a 35-34--69 and set the tone early. Broyles and Kihara each posted their 69s later in the day to create the three-way tie.

In his third AJGA event, Broyles posted birdies on Nos. 2, 6 and 7 to make the turn at 1-under-par 35.

"The key today was making my birdie putts," Broyles said. "I played more break on my putts than I saw. I was under-reading the break on my putts during the practice round."

Broyles stayed hot with his putter on the back nine to post a bogey-free 34. The 15-year-old recovered from an errant tee shot on the par-5 12th by sticking his third shot within 15 feet and two-putting for par and was able to keep the momentum going with birdies on 13 and 15.

Although he was not used to the Texas heat, Kihara had an impressive showing at his first AJGA tournament.

"We don't have heat like this in Canada, but it felt good." Kihara said. "The ball goes a lot further."

Kihara used his length to birdie the 514-yard par-5 2nd hole and would add four more birdies to help him grab a tie for the lead.

Tomorrow Kihara plans on focusing on every shot to keep his lead going.

Guillermo Chavez of Clovis, N.M., Kevin Schultz of Richardson, Texas, and Chance Williams of Tyler, Texas, are tied for fourth after 2-under-par 70s.

Park said she used the information that she learned at the Day of Education with Chris Passarella of the David Leadbetter Academy to help her score well. The Day of Education is hosted by the AJGA the day before Callaway Golf Junior All-Star events. Park's round was highlighted by back-to-back birdies on 12 and 13.

"I am disappointed in my two bogeys," Park said. "I chunked the chips, but overall I'm happy."
Jennifer Hong of Windermere, Fla., Kimberly Meck of Austin, Texas, are tied for second at 76.

The final round of the tournament will begin tomorrow at 7:30 a.m with tee-times running until 12:18 p.m.
