AJGA HENRY-GRIFFITTS BLUEGRASS JUNIOR INVITATIONAL
Bellefonte Country Club
Ashland, Ky.
June 19-22, 2001

BARR, LAFONTAINE, AND WIEGAND OUTLAST WEATHER DELAY, LEAD BOYS DIVISION
Adams cards 2-over-par 72 to lead the Girls Division

ASHLAND, Ky.-Cale Barr of Versailles, Ky., Shawn Lafontaine of Cobourg, Ontario, and Tommy Wiegand of Avon Lake, Ohio, fired 2-under-par 68s Wednesday to share the lead after the first round of the AJGA Henry-Griffitts Bluegrass Junior Invitational at Bellefonte Country Club. Brittany Adams of Huntington, W.Va., leads the Girls Division at 72.

The 54-hole event, conducted by the American Junior Golf Association, celebrates its 20th year, making it one of the oldest AJGA tournaments currently on the schedule. Past champions of the tournament include Steve Flesch, PGA Tour Rookie of the Year in 1998, and Vicki Goetze, who has two U.S. Women's Amateur titles and one NCAA Women's Championship to her name.

The 16-year-old Barr (35-33--68), who has finished in the top-five in this event the last two years, will look to contend for his first AJGA title.

"I like this course a lot," Barr said. "It's fun and short, but if you're not hitting the ball straight, it's easy to make a lot of bogeys."

Lafontaine, 18, credited steady iron shots and consistent putting as the reasons for his round of 36-32--68.

"I did what I needed to do today to put myself in contention," Lafontaine said. "I'm going to try to play the same way tomorrow."

The 16-year-old Wiegand, also looking for his first AJGA title, relied on solid play throughout his round in posting a 33-35--68. Wiegand used the weather delay to gather his thoughts after making double-bogey on No. 13, and the 16-year-old is intent on staying focused throughout the rest of the tournament.

"I'm just going to take things one shot at a time and remember to play the course, not the people," Wiegand said. "You can score well on this course as long as you keep it conservative and under control."

Rounding out the top-five in a tie for fourth place are Jessie Mudd (34-35--69) of Louisville, Ky., and Paul Miller (34-35--69) of Wheelersburg, Ohio.

In the Girls Division, Brittany Adams of Huntington, W.Va., carded a 2-over-par round of 36-36--72 to take the early lead. The 17-year-old West Virginia State Women's Amateur champion aims to keep improving on her scores from last year.

"I want to keep taking things one shot at a time," Adams said. "If I have a bad hole, I've learned to forget about it."

Chasing Adams in second place is Amanda Blumenherst of Fort Wayne, Ind., who carded a 36-37--73, and rounding out the top-three in the Girls Division is Whitney Wade of Glasgow, Ky., with a 37-37--74.

Second-round action begins on Thursday at 7 a.m. The field consists of 120 junior golfers ages 13-18. For more information on the AJGA Henry-Griffitts Bluegrass Junior Invitational, please contact tournament headquarters at (606) 326-0341.
