AJGA INDIANA JUNIOR CLASSIC
The Links at Heartland Crossing
Camby, Ind.
July 16-19, 2001

POPE TAKES BOYS DIVISION CROWN WITH FINAL-ROUND 69
Wade repeats as Girls Division champion with 12-stroke victory

CAMBY, Ind.-Andy Pope of Glen Ellyn, Ill., won his first-career AJGA championship Thursday with a tournament total of 8-under-par 208 at the AJGA Indiana Junior Classic at The Links at Heartland Crossing. Whitney Wade of Glasgow, Ky., continued her successful month of July by finishing the tournament at 5-under-par and 12 strokes ahead of runner-up Morgan Pressel of Boca Raton, Fla., to take first in the Girls Division.

The Indiana Junior Classic, conducted by the American Junior Golf Association at The Links at Heartland Crossing, featured a field of 97 players representing 18 states. The 54-hole event, in its second year, also featured three Polo Golf Junior All-Americans and 20 Indiana natives.

"There's no greater feeling than winning one of these," Pope said about his AJGA victory.

Pope carded his third consecutive round under par Thursday with his final-round 69. He made three birdies and one eagle Thursday en route to only the fifth round of the tournament in the 60s.

"Last week, I started playing really well," he said. "And this week, I played probably the best golf I've ever played."

His strategy Thursday involved putting the ball in the fairway and on to the green in regulation.

"After I started today, I knew they were going to have to come after me, so I just tried to hit greens," Pope said.

The 17-year-old from Illinois held a 5-stroke lead over eventual runner-up Ben Smith after nine holes, but was pressured down the stretch by Smith's 4-under-par performance on the back nine. Smith, from Westlake, Ohio, finished second at 7-under-par 209.

Momentum swung in Smith's favor on the 509-yard, par-5 13th hole. The 16-year-old left his second shot five feet from the hole before draining a putt to make eagle and move to within one stroke of Pope. But Smith was unable to overcome the deficit on the final five holes.

"On the last few holes, I hit some perfect shots," Smith commented. "But I was a little too pumped and they flew over the greens."

Nathan Piller of Duncanville, Texas, took third with a tournament total of 2-under-par 214 after a final-round 70. Scott Seibert of Chesterfield, Mo., wrapped up tournament action in fourth at even-par 216, while Max Harres of Belleville, Ill., Bobby Bennett of Wilmette, Ill., and James Sacheck of Zionsville, Ind., tied for fifth at 1-over par 217.

Just one week after finishing tied for fourth at the AJGA Rolex Tournament of Champions, Wade continued her torrid play by claiming her third career AJGA title with a 5-under-par 211. She also won the inaugural AJGA Indiana Junior Classic in 2000.

"Everything in my game is coming together right now and it's showing," the 15-year-old Wade said. "I've always had trouble in at least one part of my game, but these last few weeks, it's really come together. I like this tournament, I just play pretty well in Indiana."

Wade fired a final-round of 2-under-par 70 to extend her lead over Pressel. The Kentucky native credited her consistent putting as the key to her success Thursday at Heartland Crossing.

"I made a lot of putts to save myself today," she said.

The two-time Indiana Junior Classic champion will look to continue her success next week at the U.S. Junior Girls National Championships and at the AJGA McDonald's Betsy Rawls Girls National Championship the following week.

"I'm hoping to do well there too," she said about the AJGA McDonald's Betsy Rawls Girls National Championship to be held at DuPont Country Club. "I'm going to keep practicing and not change anything because it seems to be working right now."

Pressel, 13, finished second after a final-round 73 left her at 7-over-par 223 for the tournament. Finishing third was Kristen White of Doylestown, Pa., at 11-over-par 227. White posted a final-round of 2-over-par 74 Thursday.
