LARSON FIRES 66 TO TAKE BOYS DIVISION LEAD IN RAIN-SOAKED
COMPAQ JUNIOR CLASSIC AT ENGLISH TURN
Wooster and Jones co-leaders in Girls Division

NEW ORLEANS - Kevin Larsen of Santa Barbara, Calif., fired a second-round 66 to take the Boys Division lead at the 24th annual Compaq Junior Classic at English Turn. Sara Jones of Valencia, Calif., and Alexis Wooster of Winnekta, Ill., share the Girls Division lead entering Friday's final round.

Conducted by the American Junior Golf Association for the 13th year on English Turn Golf & Country Club's par-72 layout, the field includes 86 players representing 19 states and Germany. Past participants include Tiger Woods, Phil Mickelson, Justin Leonard, David Duval, and Grace Park.

Thursday's play was marred by almost a five-hour weather delay as English Turn's course was flooded by a heavy downpour.

Larsen enters Friday's final round of the 54-hole event with a four-shot lead over Robert Stone of Dallas and first-round leader Nathan Smith of Soquel, Calif. Larsen's round of 66 included seven birdies versus only one bogey.

"It was pretty much a mistake-free round," said Larsen, who carded a first-round 70 for a total of 136. "The only bogey I had was a three-putt, so that is a good indication of how I played."

For Friday, Larsen said his game plan was simple.

"I want to keep the same mind-set and not worry about the water," he said. "That won't be easy to do, considering every hole out here has some type of water hazzard."

Smith shot 75 on the day for a two-day total of 140. He was penalized two strokes for taking a stroke before play officially resumed after the weather delay. Stone stayed in the hunt with an even-par round of 72 for a two-day total of 140.

Rounding out the top five are Tulane signee Chris Wheeler of Allen, Texas, at 141, and Chris Elliott of Plano, Texas, at 145.

In the Girls Division, Jones continued her mastery of the front nine, shooting a 33-39-72 on the day for a two-day total of 147. For the tournament, she is 8-under-par on the front nine.

"The rain delay helped settle me down," said Jones, who started the day on the 10th tee. "I can't explain why I've played so well on the front nine. I've taken advantage of strong iron shots by making the putts."

Wooster's totals of 71-76-147 was good enough for a first-place tie with Jones.

"I lost my concentration after the delay today," Wooster said. "Sara was playing so well and I was just trying to keep up. It should be an interesting final round."

Rounding out the top three is Alexis Rather of Tupelo, Miss., at 149.

The final round of the Compaq Junior Classic at English Turn begins Friday at 7:30 a.m. For more information, please feel free to contact the AJGA tournament headquarters at (504) 391-8182.
