AJGA FIELDSTONE JUNIOR CLASSIC
Fieldstone Golf Club
Greenville, Delaware
July 22-25, 2002

WITMAN, COHAN IN FAMILIAR POSITION AT FIELDSTONE
Cavener continues to lead in Girls Division

GREENVILLE, Del. - Tyler Witman of Rehoboth Beach, Del., shot a second-round 3-over-par 74 at the AJGA Fieldstone Junior Classic to hold onto a share of the Boys Division lead with Adam Cohan of Wayne, Pa., who fired a even-par 71 to jump to the top of the leaderboard. In the Girls Division, Michaela Cavener of Ponca City, Okla., posted a 78 to maintain her lead.

The 54-hole event, conducted by the American Junior Golf Association, is being held at the par-71 Fieldstone Golf Club. The field includes 87 of the top juniors in the country, representing 17 states, and including five Delaware natives.

Witman, who was the 2001 Delaware state champion, was able to get out of trouble on Nos. 5 and 7 for par, but a pair of bogeys on the front put him 2-over-par at the turn.

"I didn't hit the ball too well today, and when I did I couldn't capitalize," said Whitman, who found the fescue grass four times, but was able to save par every time.

The 17-year-old recovered from two more bogeys on the back nine with a birdie on No. 18 to jump back into a share of the lead and into the final pairing tomorrow with Jace Moore of Southlake, Texas, and Cohan.

"It's going to be fun tomorrow. We've played junior golf together for awhile and used to live close to each other," Witman said of Cohan. "I'd like to tie him, but you can't have ties in golf."
Cohan, starting on No. 10, connected on a 12-footer for birdie on No. 12 and added a birdie on No. 18 to get off to a solid start. Cohan ended with eight pars and a bogey to finish with an even-par 71 and sit at 143 for the tournament.

"I hit the ball well off the tee today, a lot better than yesterday," Cohan said. "I just couldn't put any close enough to give myself any good birdie chances. All of the birdie chances I had inside of 10 feet, I missed."

Cohan will be in search of his second career win at Fieldstone tomorrow after coming back from a shot down to beat Witman at the 2000 Junior All-Star Classic at Fieldstone.

"It was like this two years ago at the Junior All-Star here," Cohan said. "Except last time he was up one going into the final round and this time we're tied."

Jace Moore of Southlake, Texas, is in third place after shooting a 5-over-par 76 to drop to 146. Gerald Henderson of Blue Bell, Pa., Marco Poccia of Gansevoort, N.Y., and Will Osborne of Wichita Falls, Texas, are locked in a three-way tie for fourth at 147.

In the Girls Division, Cavener was able to stay out of trouble during yesterday's 2-under-par 69, but found the tall grass three times during the second round.

"I didn't hit the ball as well today and not in the right spots," Cavener said. "Yesterday, my misses were better and not in as much trouble."

Starting on the back nine, Cavener birdied No. 11 and made a pair of long putts for birdie on Nos. 2 and 8 to salvage a 78.

"I'm not disappointed with my round, I just knew I could have played better," the 16-year-old said. "It's a tough course, so I'm happy where I'm at."

Ashley Grier of Hagerstown, Md., is alone in second at 153 after posting a 77. Delaware native Jessica Reno of Wilmington, shot an 80 to sit in third place at 155.

Final-round tee times will begin at 7:30 a.m. on Thursday, July 25 off the No. 1 and 10 tees at Fieldstone Golf Club.
