Three juniors one shot off the pace

HAGERSTOWN, Md. - Chad Bricker of Waynesboro, Pa., fired a 1-over-par 73 to take the lead in the first round of the AJGA Postseason Junior at Hagerstown Saturday.

The 36-hole event, conducted by the American Junior Golf Association, is being held at Beaver Creek Country Club. The inaugural tournament is one of two events being held this weekend for members, boys ages 13-18, who have been unsuccessful in gaining entry into AJGA events in the past.

The AJGA developed this series as an avenue for more members to earn playing opportunities at the national level and gain exposure for college golf scholarships. The other event, the AJGA Postseason Junior at Kissimmee/St. Cloud, is being held simultaneously at Celebration Golf Club in Celebration, Fla.

Bricker carded two birdies en route to a 36-37-73 and a one-shot lead.

"I started out pretty well," the 14-year-old said. "I birdied No. 7 and then hit my approach shot to five feet on No. 8, but I lipped out and made par. I putted well and made a lot of three to six footers. I also drove the ball well and hit a lot of fairways. I was very consistent today and I did not have any big numbers."

Bricker was cruising at even-par through 10 holes when he bogeyed Nos. 11 and 13. But four pars and a birdie on the 414-yard par-4 17th hole saved his round and gave him a thin margin heading into the final day.

"I need to keep working on my putting to shoot a good score tomorrow," he continued. "I have an advantage on this course because there are a lot of tight holes and I hit the ball straight. Hopefully tomorrow I will continue to drive the ball well."

On Bricker's heels one shot off the pace at 74 are Charlie Pulliam of Bardstown, Ky., Aaron Jessee of Gray, Tenn., and Ryan Dunham of West Covina, Calif. Shawn Hall of Lancaster, Pa., is currently in fifth place with a 75.

In all, 27 players sit within eight strokes of the lead heading into the final 18 holes.

The winner of the event will be automatically accepted into three AJGA events in 2002, the top five finishers will receive two automatic entries, while those who place in the top 15 will be automatically accepted into one AJGA tournament.

Final-round tee times will run from 7:30-9:27 a.m., off the No. 1 and 10 tees Sunday.
