GIBBONS REPEATS AS CHAMPION OF HARGRAY JUNIOR CLASSIC
Hoagland rips through back nine to grab title

HILTON HEAD ISLAND, S.C.-Joel Gibbons of Ocala, Fla., continued to dominate the field of the Hargray Junior Classic at Indigo Run, defending his title with a three-day total of 7-under-par 209. Gibbons, who won on this same Golden Bear Golf Club course last year, edged Brian Duncan of Greenville, S.C., by two shots. In the Girls Division, Ashley Hoagland of Palmetto, Fla., carded an even-par 216 for the Girls Division title.

The Hargray Junior Classic at Indigo Run, conducted by the American Junior Golf Association, featured 84 players from 19 states and included four Polo Junior Golf All-Americans.

Gibbons, who registered his second AJGA victory, came into the final round with a 1-stroke lead over Luke List of Ringgold, Ga., and Bill Roach, Jr. of Knoxville, Tenn.

"I just wanted to play consistent today," the Colorado State University signee said. "I didn't want any big numbers. I just hit a lot of 2-irons down the middle."

Gibbons, 18, won the Hargray Junior Classic in 2000 and tallied four birdies today. He finished the tournament with rounds of 69-70-70.

"I felt I had about as good of a chance to win here as anywhere," Gibbons said. "I looked forward to being in an environment where I had succeeded before."

Duncan carded a 5-under-par 211 for second place, only a week after setting a tournament record of 16-under-par 200 at the PING Myrtle Beach Junior Classic. Kevin Kisner of Aiken, S.C., and Rhett Lewis of Douglas, Ga., tied for third at 4-under-par 212. Luke List of Ringgold, Ga., finished fifth with a 3-under-par 213.

In the Girls Division, Hoagland fired a final round 2-under-par 70 and drained a 12-foot pressure-packed birdie putt on No. 18 to capture the title.

Hoagland reached the 18th in regulation and then watched as Nicole Hage of Coral Springs, Fla., lipped out a birdie putt and Lisa Tyler of Lighthouse Point, Fla., sank a 15-foot birdie putt to pull all three competitors to 1-over-par.

Hoagland calmly stepped over her ball and rolled the 12-foot birdie for the win. However, the 18-year-old's play over the back nine put her in position for the win.

"I turned nine at even par and then birdied three out of the last four holes," Hoagland said. "We were all hitting good shots and feeding off each other."

Hoagland, who placed fourth in last week's PING Myrtle Beach Junior Classic, took some risks in the last four holes to catch the pace set by Hage.

"I knew I had to make some birdies," the Wake Forest signee said. "They were hitting irons and I had to hit my 3-wood. Then I was able to hit wedge shots and strike it close to the hole."

Tyler and Hage tied for second with 1-over-par 217s.
