MAY'S 2-UNDER-PAR SETS PACE FOR FIRST ROUND AT NEW SEABURY
Choi takes lead in Girls Division at her first AJGA event

MASHPEE, Mass. - David May of Auburn, N.Y., fired a 2-under-par 68 in the opening round Tuesday to take the Boys Division lead at the AJGA SLI Junior Classic at New Seabury. In the Girls Division, Marina Choi of Los Angeles shot a 3-over-par 73 for a one-shot lead.

The 54-hole event, conducted by the American Junior Golf Association, is being held on the par-70 layout of the Dunes Course at the Country Club of New Seabury. The national event features 84 players, ages 13-18, representing 20 states.

May, 15, started on No. 10 and made the turn at 1-over-par. He then proceeded to birdie No. 3 and three of last four holes en route to a 2-under-par 68 in his first AJGA event of the year.

"On my first nine (the back nine), I shot 1-over but I hit all nine greens and had one three-putt," May said. "I couldn't get used to the speed of the greens. I left a lot of putts out there. On my last nine, my putter started working.

"I gave myself some chances out there," he continued. "I was hitting my irons close. Tomorrow I need to do the same thing as today. I need to keep myself out of trouble and if I continue hitting the ball well, I will eventually make a few."

Two shots off the pace at even-par 70 is John Sawin of Haverford, Pa. Tied for third at 1-over-par 71 are Jon Curran of Hopkinton, Mass.; David Merkow of Hartland, Wis.; Matt Hanlon of Hingham, Mass.; and Jeff Wallace of Franklin, Mass.

In the Girls Division, Choi made the most of her first AJGA experience, taking a one-shot advantage into the second round.

She, too, started out rough on the back nine, making the turn at 4-over. But four birdies spread out between Nos. 1 and 6 helped secure the 16-year-old's lead.

"I was hitting my irons close," she said. "Tomorrow I need to work on my putting. I have been playing well lately, but I am not really happy with how I played today."

Songyi Yi of San Diego, Calif., is in second place after a 4-over-par 74. Tied for third are Juli Wightman of Chicopee, Mass., and Lauren Motyl of New Bedford, Mass., at 7-over-par 77.

Second-round tee times will run from 7-8:57 a.m. Wednesday off the Nos. 1 and 10 tees at the Country Club of New Seabury. The tournament concludes Thursday.
