DELAWARE NATIVE WITMAN TAKES THE LEAD AT FIELDSTONE
Cavener garners season low 69 in the Girls Division

GREENVILLE, Del. - Tyler Witman of Rehoboth Beach, Del., and Michaela Cavener of Ponca City, Okla., captured more than just birdies and pars during the first round at the AJGA Fieldstone Junior Classic; they both fired low rounds of 69 for the lead in their respective divisions.

Tight fairways lined with fescue grass and evaluated tee boxes accurately portrays the challenging terrain that 87 juniors, representing 17 states, faced as they teed it up for the 54-hole stroke play tournament at the Fieldstone Golf Club in Greenville, Del., conducted by the American Junior Golf Association. Five Delaware natives are included in the field.

Witman came into Tuesday's round with the mindset to make a few birdies and avoid the hazards. The 16-year-old did more than just that; he nailed five birdies on Nos. 6, 7, 10, 15, and 17.

"I hit my irons very well today, however, my putting was rather streaky," Witman said. "The key to playing this course is to hit the fairways and greens and if you don't, you will land in the tall grass and that will cost you several strokes because it's so tough getting out of it."

Trailing behind Witman by one stroke with 1-under par 70s include Jace Moore of Southlake, Texas, and Matt Busa of Bay Village Ohio, while Witchita Falls, Texas native Will Osborne carded a 38-33-71 to be among the leaders. Rounding out the first-round leaderboard at even par are Shawn Warren of Windham, Maine, and Adam Cohan of Wayne, Penn.

In the Girls Division, Cavener fired a 35-34-69 to take the lead. The rising high school junior hit every green and carded three birdies en route to earning her low round of the season.

"I just played very solid today. Everything was working for me and this is the best I have played all season," Cavener said.

Going into the second round in hopes of securing a top spot before the final round, Cavener plans use the same strategy.

"I just want to hit every fairway and green. I plan to play well and have fun," she said.

Lauren Braswell of Basking Ridge, N.J., is four-strokes behind Cavener with a 34-39-73 while Delaware native Jessica Reno of Wilmington, who won the 2001 AJGA Compaq Junior All-Star Classic at Fieldstone, carded a 3-over-par 75.

Second-round tee times will begin at 7:30 a.m. on Wednesday, July 24 off the No. 1 and 10 tees at Fieldstone Golf Club.
