CLANTON PICKS UP MEDALIST HONORS FOR SECOND TIME IN 2004
Brewbaker fires 1-under-par 70 to top Boys Division

CORNELIUS, N.C. – Cydney Clanton of Concord, N.C., gave herself one of her best birthday presents as she used a 2-over-par 74 to earn medalist honors at the Golf Pride Junior Classic Qualifier. Fielding Brewbaker of Salem, Va., notched four birdies in the qualifier to take medalist honors in the Boys Division.

Conducted by the American Junior Golf Association, the Golf Pride Junior Classic Qualifier was held at The Peninsula Club in Cornelius, N.C. The juniors were competing for 14 spots (12 boys, two girls) in the Golf Pride Junior Classic, which will feature 99 players from 13 states, including 41 from North Carolina. The 54-hole event will be held at The Peninsula Club and begins Tuesday.

Clanton picked up four birdies in the round as she won medalist honors for the second time in 2004. The first time was at the TaylorMade-adidas Golf Junior at Chateau Elan over Easter Weekend. Only this time it was a little better as she turned 15 years old today.

“On the front nine I was hitting my driver well, but my putting was not working well today,” said Clanton. “At the end, I was knocking a few close and hitting some putts.”

Being from Concord, which is a suburb of nearby Charlotte, one of the things that Clanton is looking for is playing with some of her friends.

“There are a lot of girls in the tournament that I know and play with, so it should be a fun week.”

Also qualifying in the Girls Division is Erica Creed of Kernersville, N.C., who qualified via sudden-death playoff over Amber Littman of Stoney Creek, N.C. Creed and Littman both shot 4-over-par 76s in the qualifying round.

Playing in just his third AJGA event, 17-year-old Brewbaker is excited to get a shot at the title this week. “The Peninsula Club seems like a great club and with Golf Pride sponsoring, I thought this would be a good tournament to get some exposure in,” said Brewbaker.

Brewbaker had four birdies during the round and was the only player to finish better than par.

“I never made any mistakes today, never got in trouble, just kept my emotions even and played my game,” said Brewbaker.

Also qualifying in the Boys Division are Matt Lawson of Raleigh, N.C., Jay Whitby of Wyoming, Del., and Bryant Hare of St. Simons Island, Ga., with even-par 71s. Griffith Hunter of Radford, Va., Ryan Kerns of Davidson, N.C., and Jayson Judy of Gibsonville, N.C., each finished with rounds of 72.

Stewart Dula of Salisbury, N.C., Brad Skinner of Black Creek, Ga., Kodi Merrell of West Palm Beach, Fla., Greg Williams of Jamestown, N.C., and McArn Bennett of Cheraw, S.C., round out the tournament field with two-over-par 73s.
