PARK PACES FIELD WITH 4-UNDER-PAR 67 AT BETSY RAWLS
Florida resident grabs five-shot lead heading into final round

WILMINGTON, Del. - In-Bee Park of Eustis, Fla., moved atop the leaderboard Wednesday and has a five-stroke lead after the second round of the AJGA McDonald's Betsy Rawls Girls National Championship. The only player in the field below par, Park fired a 67 to take the lead with a two-round score of 138.

Conducted by the American Junior Golf Association, the McDonald's Betsy Rawls Girls National Championship features 62 girls representing 26 states and Mexico, and is being held on the par-71, 6,017-yard DuPont Course at The DuPont Country Club.

Having just won the U.S. Girls Junior July 27, the South Korea native entered the tournament with high expectations.

"My goal is to win," Park said. "This is a big tournament to me. Grace Park won it four times so I think it would be nice to win this one."

Playing with last year's champion and runner-up the last two days could be nerve-racking, but the 14-year-old standout fired the low round of the day, carding four birdies, two bogeys and an eagle on No. 2.

"I felt nervous at first playing with Elizabeth (Janangelo) and Brittany (Lang)," Park continued. "They're really good players but that just makes me want to play better."

Dayna Burleigh (69-74-143) of Horsham, Pa., seeks her first AJGA title as she stands alone in second after a 3-over-par 74. Morgan Pressel (69-75-144) of Boca Raton, Fla., trails Park by six strokes in third place after a 75.

Janangelo of West Hartford, Conn., remains in contention to defend her title after posting a solid a 1-over-par 72 for fourth.

"I would like to be closer to contention," Janangelo said. "But it has been great playing with In-Bee and Brittany the past two days. I have the most respect for In-Bee. She's only 14 and I'm happy that she is doing well."

Julieta Granada of Bradenton, Fla., came through with an even-par 71 and rounds out the top-five at 146.

Final-round tee times will run from 7 - 10 a.m. Thursday off the No. 1 tee on the DuPont Course at the DuPont Country Club.
