CURRAN, GRZEBIEN CLAIM TROPHIES AT GREATER HARTFORD JAYCEES JUNIOR
Curran earns second title of summer; Grzebien wins Girls Division by 15 shots

AVON, Conn. - With three rounds of consistent play, Jon Curran of Hopkinton, Mass., and Anna Grzebien of Narragansett, R.I., secured the titles Thursday at the AJGA Greater Hartford Jaycees Junior Classic.

The 99-player event, conducted by the American Junior Golf Association, featured 78 boys and 21 girls from 22 states, as well as Canada and Zimbabwe, in a 54-hole stroke play competition held at the Golf Club of Avon.

Entering the final round with a one-shot lead, the 15-year-old Curran called upon his experience from two weeks ago when he won the AJGA Kroger Junior Invitational.

"That helped me stay confident today," Curran said. "I was pretty calm, but I was nervous over the last putt."

With two AJGA wins in three weeks, Curran credited his putting for his recent outstanding play.

"I switched putters at Kroger," he said. "I was making a ton of putts this week."

Curran finished at 1-under-par with rounds of 72-68-72-212. His consistency helped him earn a three-shot victory over Greg Koch of Orlando, Fla., who shot rounds of 69-72-74-215.
Conner Doherty of Woodstock, Vt., shot 4-over-par 217 to claim third place, while Scott Marino of Fairfax, Va., took fourth with a 5-over-par 218. Andrew Carr of Pensacola, Fla., and Gregory Huxman of Pinecrest, Fla., tied for fifth place at 219.

Grzebien, 17, was a runaway victor in the Girls Division as she picked up her third career AJGA title. With rounds of 70-73-73-216, Grzebien finished at 3-over-par to earn a 15-stroke victory. After taking an 11-shot lead into the final round, her lead was never threatened.

"I was just trying to play like I did the first two days," Grzebien said. "There wasn't as much pressure as the second day when it was still close. But I still wanted to post a good number."

The key to Grzebien's week was "hitting fairways and greens," she said. "Getting off to a good start was helpful, too."

Last year, Grzebien won two AJGA titles en route to second-team Polo Golf Junior All-American honors. As one of the top players on the country, Grzebien plans to join the Duke University golf team in 2003.

Whitney Myers of East Berlin, Pa., finished in second place at 73-81-77-231, while Juli Wightman of Chicopee, Mass., took third place at 79-76-78-233.
