Cloutier finishes in top spot in Girls Division

ST. AUGUSTINE, Fla. - Cornelius Carroll of St. Simons, Ga., and Gin Woong Kim of Wesley Chapel, Fla., both fired a 4-under-par 68 to share medalist honors of the AJGA Shell World Golf Village Junior Championship Qualifier. Sharla Cloutier of Niceville, Fla., carded a 1-over-par 73 to claim the Girls Division.

Conducted by the American Junior Golf Association, the Shell World Golf Village Junior Championship Qualifier allowed 16 juniors, 13 boys and 3 girls, to earn a spot into the three-round Championship event, which begins Tuesday.

The AJGA Shell World Golf Village Junior Championship will feature 84 players with boys and girls representing 15 states, with the majority of participants hailing from state of Florida.

Carroll started off with a bogey on his first hole, but came back strong with three straight birdies. Carroll bogeyed his 16th hole before making his seventh birdie of the round on the next hole. Carroll pared his last hole to finish 32-36-68.

"I am very happy with my round today," said Carroll, who hit 15 greens and 10 fairways. "I didn't start out too well with a bogey, but those three birdies in a row really got me going. My putting is usually my weak spot, but today it was really good."

Kim started the day with a par on his first hole before making three consecutive birdies. Kim made two more birdies on his 12th and 16th holes to finish 34-34-68.

"I played well," said Kim, who made only one bogey. "This course sets up good for my game, and I am very confident heading into this tournament."

Timothy Freund of Greensboro, Ga., Patrick Scranton of Dunedin, Fla., Reed Darsie of Chapel Hill, N.C., and Michael Buttacavoli of Miami Beach, Fla., all qualified shooting 71. Surviving a sudden-death playoff were Tommy Suri of Miami, Fla., Chip Wedgeworth of Hilton Head, S.C., Brad Hondros of Wilson, N.C., Bret Jones of Southlake, Texas, Greg Wilkerson of Tampa, Fla., Robert Riesen of Pinehurst, N.C., and Preston Brown of Ponte Vedra Beach, Fla, who all qualified with even-par 72.

In the Girls Division, Cloutier pared her first hole before making bogey on her next two holes. Cloutier pared her next three holes before bagging her first birdie of the day. Cloutier made one more bogey and one more birdie to finish 36-37-73.

"I started off with a good par, but then I bogeyed my next two and thought, 'Oh no,'" said Cloutier, who hit 13 greens in regulation. "After that I started hitting greens in regulation and playing steady golf."

Lisa Tyler of Lighthouse Point, Fla., also qualified with 5-over-par 72, along with Christine Yum of Bradenton, Fla., who shot a 79.

First-round tee times will begin at 7:30 a.m. on Tuesday, July 9 off the Nos. 1 and 10 tees at Slammer & Squire at World Golf Village.
