Creamer holds on to lead in the Girls Division

HARBOR SPRINGS, Mich. - Danny Zimmerman of Verona, Wis., carded an even-par 72 to break away from a three-way tie for the lead and sit alone atop the leaderboard heading into the final round of the 17th annual AJGA Buick Junior Open. Paula Creamer of Pleasanton, Calif., carded a 78 to maintain her lead in the Girls Division.

The 54-hole event, conducted by the American Junior Golf Association at the Boyne Highlands Resort, par-72 Moor Course, features 99 players representing 19 states and includes 33 Michigan natives. Past winners include Phil Mickelson and Mt. Pleasant, Mich., native Kelly Robbins.

Zimmerman was able to attack the par 5s on the front nine for a pair of birdies. The 15-year-old stuck a lob wedge from 85 feet out on No. 3 to within four feet for his first birdie of the day and followed it with a short birdie on No. 8 to make the turn at 1-under-par.

"I played steady today," Zimmerman said. "I was very consistent on the front and just did what it took to get through the back."

After a bogey on No. 15, Zimmerman recovered with a birdie on the 160-yard, par-3 17th and a par on No. 18 to finish the day at even par and remain at 2-under-par for the tournament.

"I'm in a position to win and that's what it's all about coming down the stretch," Zimmerman said. "I'm going to have the same mentality tomorrow as I've had all week, which is to hit fairways and greens and stay steady."

Ryan Lenahan of Grosse Pointe Shores, Mich., sits one stroke back at 143 after carding a 1-over-par 73. David Huestis of Worthington, Ohio, carded the low round of the day with a 2-under-par 70 and is tied for third with Clark Klaasen of Ada, Mich., at 144. Colby Beckstrom of North Muskegon, Mich., lurks three shots back at 145 after a 1-over-par 73.

In the Girls Division, Creamer was able to escape the day with the lead and is closing in on her fourth national victory of the year. Creamer shot a 6-over-par 42 on the front but settled down on the back for nine straight pars to hold on to the lead.

"I made a lot of mental errors today," Creamer said. "At the turn, I knew I needed to start doing a better job of hitting fairways and greens."

Creamer already has wins this year at the AJGA St. Regis Aspen Junior Classic, the AJGA Compaq Junior Classic at Trophy Lake and the WorldCom Junior Classic.

"Tomorrow I'm going to use my head a little more and make better mental decisions," the 14-year-old said. "I'm going to try to stay below the hole and try to make a few more putts."

Honorable mention Polo Golf Junior All-American Lisa Tyler of Lighthouse Point, Fla., sits one shot back at 151 after a 4-over-par 76. Erin Borowiec of South Lyon, Mich., and Beth Marushak of Northampton, Pa., are locked in a tie for third at 152.

Final-round action begins Thursday morning at 7:00 a.m. For more information on the AJGA Buick Junior Open, please contact tournament headquarters at (231) 526-3168.
